Czarnick purchased his winning Triple Tripler ticket at Dale’s Food Pride, 634 E Street in David City. Scratching the ticket, he revealed three matching dollar amounts in Game 3 for a corresponding prize of $50,000.
There were three $50,000 top prizes available in Triple Tripler. Czarnick was the third person to claim a top prize in the game.
While claiming his prize on July 31, Czarnick told Nebraska Lottery officials that he was “confounded” when he scratched off the ticket. “I just kept checking it over and over,” said Czarnick. He plans to pay bills using his winnings.
