COZAD MAN WINS $100,000 PLAYING NEBRASKA PICK 5
January 6, 2017

Harry Springer of Cozad won a total of $100,000 playing Nebraska Pick 5 from the Nebraska Lottery.  

Springer purchased his winning ticket at Time Saver, 102 West 6th in Cozad. The ticket had one play with the winning numbers 3, 11, 25, 31 and 37 from the December 18 drawing for the $100,000 jackpot.

Springer told Lottery officials that he did not realize there were drawings held on Sunday for Pick 5 until he bought his ticket December 18. When he came to claim his prize, he was dumbfounded. “It’s so hard for me to believe,” he said. “I still don’t believe it.”

With his winnings, Springer plans to pay bills while the remainder will go toward an elk hunting trip in Colorado where his nephew is a guide.

Nebraska Pick 5 is Nebraska's unique Lottery game: all the proceeds from Nebraska Pick 5 stay in Nebraska, and all the winning tickets are sold in Nebraska at Nebraska Lottery Lotto game retailers. The odds of winning the Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot, which starts at $50,000 and grows by $4,000 each drawing that it is not won, are 1 in 501,942. The odd of winning $450 playing Nebraska Pick 5 are 1 in 3,042, while the overall odds of winning a prize in the game, which has drawings six nights a week, are 1 in 8.
