Lincoln man wins $50,000 in Nebraska Pick 5 drawing


Thanks to five lucky numbers, Archie Mickles of Lincoln is $50,000 richer.

Mickles had the winning numbers for the Nebraska Pick 5 lottery this week, purchasing his winning ticket at the Casey's General Store at 1445 S. 17th St. The winning numbers (11, 13, 20, 25 and 37) matched Mickles' quick pick ticket for the April 14 drawing.

Mickles said he never won more than $4 from the Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries. His $50,000 win also landed on his 69th birthday.

Mickles said he's planning to use his winnings to pay bills and save as much as he can to invest it.
