Lincoln man claims $54K prize playing Nebraska Pick 5


Warren Murrell bested his brother in winnings from a Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot.

Murrell claimed his $54,000 prize Monday, noting that he plays Pick 5 only occasionally. His brother, who he said plays almost daily, is a prior jackpot winner.

“Mine was bigger, though,” he said.

Murrell purchased his winning ticket for Friday's drawing — with the numbers 4, 6, 16, 35 and 38 — at Casey’s General Store, 3003 N. 70th St.

Murrell said he’s planning on paying off his RV and putting in a “man shed” in the backyard of the house he recently bought.

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.
