History of the Nebraska Lottery

The Nebraska Lottery was established in November 1992 due to an amendment to the state's constitution that was approved by 63 percent of voters. While the Nebraska Lottery used to sell tickets for the first incarnation of Wild Card, ticket sales were stopped when Wild Card 2, the current game, was launched.

Powerball tickets went on sale in Nebraska in July 1994 and the Nebraska Lottery joined Mega Millions in 2010. As of November 2004, revenue from Nebraska Lottery ticket sales is allocated to the following groups:

  • the Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund (44.5 percent of revenue)
  • Education Innovation Fund and the Nebraska Opportunity Grant Fund (44.5 percent of revenue)
  • the Nebraska State Fair (ten percent of revenue)
  • the Compulsive Gamblers Assistance Fund (1 percent of revenue and first $500,000 raised annually)

Playing Nebraska Lottery Games

Nebraska Lottery players can take part in Powerball, Mega Millions and 2by2, but they also have a number of in-state games that could net them big cash prizes!

MyDaY is an interesting game that uses a calendar format to select the winning numbers. Tickets cost $1 each and drawings are held Monday through Saturday. Players select one number from 1 to 12 for the "month", a number from 1 to 31 for the "day" and two numbers between 0 and 9 for the "year". To win the top prize of $5,000, you have to match the "month", "day" and "year" drawn. All date combinations chosen have to be valid options for a twelve-month calendar - so options like February 31st are out! You can only choose February 29th for years divisible by four or for years ending in "00". Lower-tier prizes are paid out for matching any combination of the month, day or year drawn. Here's what you could win:

Match Prize Odds of Winning
Month + Day + Year $5,000 1 in 36,525
Day + Year $365 1 in 3,320
Month + Year $52 1 in 1,240
Month + Day $12 1 in 369
Year $7 1 in 113
Day $4 1 in 34
Month $1 1 in 13
Odds of winning any MyDaY prize are 1 in 8.17

Nebraska Pick 5 is quick and easy. All you have to do is pay $1 per ticket and select five numbers from 1 to 38 or choose a Quick Pick if you're feeling a bit indecisive. Drawings are held six days a week from Monday to Saturday and the jackpot starts at $50,000. The top prize will roll over and increase in value until someone wins by matching all five main numbers drawn!

Winning Tier Prize Odds of Winning
Match 5 of 5 Jackpot 1 in 501,942
Match 4 of 5 $450 1 in 3,042
Match 3 of 5 $9 1 in 95
Match 2 of 5 Free $1 Quick Pick Ticket 1 in 9
Odds of winning any Nebraska Pick 5 prize are 1 in 8

Other Nebraska Lottery games include Pick 3.

The Nebraska Lottery also offers players Scratch games. These instant win games are available for purchase from authorized retailers throughout the state. Buy one today and you could win a prize of up to $200,000 in just seconds!

Claiming Nebraska Lottery Prizes

All Nebraska Lottery prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the date of the drawing. All prizes from Scratch games must be claimed within 180 days from the game's date of closure.

Nebraska Lottery prizes worth $500 or less can be claimed by mail or from any authorized retailer. Prizes worth between $501 and $19,999 need to be redeemed by mail or at a regional claim center in Grand Island, Norfolk, North Platte, Omaha or Scottsbluff. If you've really won it big and picked up a prize worth $20,000 or more, then you'll need to redeem it in person at the Nebraska Lottery offices in Lincoln.

Any prize worth $5,000 or more will have federal taxes withheld at a rate of 25 percent as well as Nebraska state taxes at five percent.

The Fine Print

If you want to play Lottery games in Nebraska, you'll need to be at least 19 years old.

Remember - it's just not possible to win a prize for any lottery game or drawing that you didn't enter. If you're ever contacted by someone telling you that you've won a massive prize for a lottery in which you never participated, be careful, as you could be the target of a scam.
