Michael Piercey

Michael Piercey of Lincoln won $80,000 playing Nebraska Pick 5 from the Nebraska Lottery.

Piercey purchased his winning ticket from Kwik Shop #235 in Lincoln. Piercey’s ticket contained five plays for the November 20 drawing, one of which had the winning combination 07, 11, 22, 34, 36.

Piercey said he was stunned to discover he’d won when he checked his ticket. Not only that he’d hit the jackpot, but also that he’d won on a set of numbers he doesn’t typically play.

During the month of November, the Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot will increase by $10,000 each time it is not won because of the Nebraska Pick 5 Jackpot Promotion. See for details.

The odds of winning the Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot, which starts at $50,000 and grows by $4,000 each drawing that is not won, are 1 in 501,942 while the overall odds of winning a prize in the game, which has drawings seven nights a week, are 1 in 8.
