Back by popular demand, the Nebraska Pick 5 Jackpot Doubler promotion begins on February 1, 2011.
The Jackpot Doubler promotion doubles the Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot each time it is won during the month of February. If a player correctly picks all 5 out of 5 numbers for a draw during the promotion, the winner would receive double the amount of the advertised jackpot. For example, if the advertised jackpot is $90,000 and all five numbers for that draw are correctly chosen, the winner would be entitled to $180,000.
Though the "doubler" aspect of the promotion only applies to the jackpot amount, the promotion will continue to apply to all drawings throughout the month regardless of how many times the jackpot is won.
A $236,000 Pick 5 double jackpot was won on February 7, so the Nebraska Pick 5 Jackpot Doubler promotion will end on Monday, February 28.
Nebraska Pick 5 is a unique Nebraska 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 are 1 in 501,942, while the overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 8.
