Nebraska Lottery September Update


Mega Millions with MegaplierThe fall Lotto Bonus Raffle is back with weekly prizes of $500 Cabela's merchandise gift cards and a Grand Prize of a $10,000 Cabela's Travel Service gift card.

Throughout the Nebraska football season, players have a chance to win great weekly prizes during the Mega Millions® with Megaplier® Bonus Raffle promotion. Starting September 18 and ending November 26, players will receive a Bonus Raffle coupon with each qualifying $2 Mega Millions with Megaplier single ticket purchase.

Once a week during the promotion, a drawing will occur among the raffle numbers issued that week. Each weekly draw will award a $500 Cabela's merchandise gift card. One Grand Prize drawing will be held on Tuesday, November 30, 2010, from all Bonus Raffle numbers generated throughout the promotion to award a $10,000 Cabela's Travel Service gift card.

Bonus Raffle coupons will print for single ticket purchases of Mega Millions with Megaplier (a $2 purchase), as well as any multiple of $2 on a single ticket that includes Megaplier. A player's Bonus Raffle number must match the winning Bonus Raffle number exactly to win. Each Bonus Raffle coupon is good for one weekly drawing during the week in which the ticket was purchased, as well as for the Grand Prize drawing on Tuesday, November 30, 2010.

All winners will be announced on the Tuesday following each scheduled drawing. Winning Bonus Raffle numbers will be listed at nelottery.com, on the Nebraska Lottery Player's Hotline (800-224-LUCK), on subsequent Mega Millions tickets, and on signage posted at Lottery retail locations.

All Tickets Distributed to Nebraska Lottery Retailers

Truck$ & Buck$With a limited supply of unsold tickets, one Ford F-150 truck remains in the $2 Nebraska Lottery Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.

Introduced in May 2010, the 15th edition of the Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game features the Ford F-150 XLT Super Crew 4x4 Flex Fuel truck as its top prize, as well as $741,000 in cash and Ethanol-enriched fuel prizes.

The entire inventory of Truck$ & Buck$ tickets has now been shipped to Nebraska Lottery retailers. To date, three Ford F-150 trucks have been claimed by Nebraska Lottery players, and one remains to be won in the game. Kenneth Northup of Lincoln was the first winner of a Ford F-150 XLT Super Crew 4x4 Flex Fuel truck on May 21. Clay Duncan of Lincoln claimed the second Ford F-150 from the Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game on July 16. Michael Kosmicki of Ashton claimed the third Ford F-150 on July 27.

The truck prize is valued at $50,000, which includes $1,465 for costs associated with ownership and state and federal withholding paid by the Nebraska Lottery of $2,500 and $12,500, respectively. The odds of winning the top prize in Truck$ & Buck$ are 1 in 180,000, while the overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.53.


Starting with the Tuesday, September 14 drawing, the Mega Millions Match 5 prize with the Megaplier option will have a guaranteed 4X multiplier. The fixed 4X multiplier will create a $1 million prize level.

The Megaplier option, which costs an extra $1 per play, offers a random multiplier of 2X, 3X, or 4X for all cash prizes won (except the Jackpot). Starting on September 14, the Match 5 prize is guaranteed to always draw the 4X multiplier, turning the $250,000 cash prize into a $1 million cash prize. The $1 million prize will be paid in cash, in one lump sum. Megaplier will continue to be available on the bottom seven prize levels.


In front of a large crowd of baseball fans, 15 semi-finalists in the Truck$ & Buck$ Second-Chance Raptor Giveaway gathered on August 28 at Haymarket Park to find out who would drive away with a 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor truck.

After a series of elimination rounds, two finalists remained in the giveaway drawing. John Sutej of Omaha and a proxy for LaMont Keller of Wisner took turns selecting keys from a covered container. Only one of the six keys in the container would start the Ford Raptor. The proxy representing Keller made the first attempt to start the truck, but the truck remained silent. Sutej then attempted to start the truck. With a roar the Raptor started, surprising both the crowd and the truck's new owner.
