North Platte Woman Wins $200,000 Playing White Ice Black Ice

Donna Anderson

Donna Anderson of North Platte won $200,000 playing the White Ice Black Ice Scratch game from the Nebraska Lottery.

Anderson purchased her winning ticket at Northside Cenex at 1020 North Jeffers St. in North Platte.

When Anderson claimed her prize at the Nebraska Lottery offices on June 7, she said she had been holding onto the winning ticket for a few weeks until she had a chance to come to Lincoln. Even though she kept it in a safe for almost a month, the win was a huge surprise.

“After I scratched it I was shaking like a leaf,” she said. “I gave it to the clerk to scan and I thought that lady was having a heart attack.”

Anderson said she’s planning on using her winnings to pay off the Jeep she recently purchased and she’ll be giving some of the money to her sister to help her brother-in-law retire.

A $20 Scratch game, White Ice Black Ice offers players a chance to win prizes from a free $20 ticket to $200,000. The chances of winning $200,000 are one in 200,000, while the odds of winning any prize are one in 2.94.
