About the Nebraska lottery
In the state of Nebraska, the first tickets for the lottery went on sale in September 1993. These ones were only for some scratch games. Next year brought the introduction of tickets dedicated to draw lotteries.
From that time, the official Nebraska Lottery has developed and today it gives you a chance to win big in six different games. The first three of them are state-exclusive games and other three are multi-state lotteries, which are also accessible in most of the states.
It’s no wonder that the biggest jackpots originate in the ticket sales for multi-state lotteries. One of the most notable jackpots is the one that went to a group of workers who shared a single ticket. They won $365 million in total in February 2006. They decided on withdrawing the money in the form of cash and after paying taxes each one of them ended up with $15 million in his bank account. Their ticket was purchased in Lincoln and they chose the correct numbers thanks to quick pick system.
Nebraska’s Powerball was established in 1994 and 2010 was the year Mega Millions was introduced. The fact of new game few years ago received coverage from the local media and eventually Mega Millions turned out to be a very successful lottery game.
There are two major differences between local Nebraska lotteries and multi-state lotteries available there. The first one is the fact how often the jackpots get massive. The other one is way of drawing the numbers. Powerball and Mega Millions have their drawings in Florida and Atlanta while the numbers for Nebraska Lottery come from a generator which chooses numbers when it is asked to.
Pick 3, Nebraska Pick 5 and MyDay are the particular examples of single-state lotteries in this state. Each one has a drawing seven days a week. Nebraska Pick 5 is the one that takes pride in having the biggest jackpots – it is never lower than $50,000 and its increase depends on how many tickets have been sold and the rollovers.
