"Krontz is a regular Powerball player who purchases tickets every week. For the Saturday, October 26 drawing, she purchased a quick pick Powerball ticket at J & J's Pronto, 108 North Highway 77 in Homer. Krontz wasted no time claiming her prize, arriving at Nebraska Lottery headquarters on Monday afternoon following the drawing. She told Nebraska Lottery officials that she learned she had won after a friend informed her that a winning ticket had been sold in Homer. 'When I heard that, I thought, 'I should go check my tickets,' said Krontz. 'So I went back to the store and checked them. I couldn't believe that I'd won.' She plans to pay bills using her winnings."
That wasn't the only $1Million prize claimed during last Saturday's drawing. The official website broke the news of the other two lucky winners, writing:
"There were two tickets that won the $1 Million Match 5 prize. They were from IL and NJ. There were no tickets that added the Power Play to win $2 million. There were 530,675 tickets that won over $5.7 million in cash prizes."
Lottery prize totals are rapidly increasing, thanks to California's inclusion and a recent rise in ticket prices. Odds of winning are increasing all around, as the Mega Millions lottery recently changed its rules and regulations in order to increase odds. The changes have also resulted in various small scale winners.
As always, please remember that the lottery is just a game and should only be played by people with the disposable income to do so. Best of luck to you.
