Nebraska Man Plans on Buying a Truck with $1 Million Prize

Timothy Manion of Omaha, Nebraska, is now $1 million richer having matched all five main numbers in the Mega Millions drawing on December 1st. Timothy is the fifth ticket holder to win the second-tier $1 million Mega Millions prize in Nebraska since March 2010, when the state lottery started selling the game. 

Where was the winning ticket sold? 

The winning ticket was sold at the Kum & Go convenience store, located at 13149 Fort Street in Omaha. Timothy purchased five lines in the draw, with one matching the five main numbers, which were 16, 22, 40, 41, 59. The Mega Ball number was 8 and the Megaplier was 4. 

There were a total of 544,572 prize winners on the night, and two other players, from New Jersey and Texas, also matched the second-tier prize numbers to become millionaires. The jackpot has now rolled 19 times with no winner, reaching an estimated $247 million for Friday’s drawing. You can find out more about the latest winners, payouts and numbers on the Mega Millions Numbers page.  

How did he discover that he had won a Mega Millions prize?

Timothy returned to the Kum & Go convenience store the day after the drawing and overheard staff talking about selling a $1 million ticket. He asked the clerk to check his ticket and the clerk confirmed he was the lucky recipient of the seven-figure sum. “I couldn’t believe it. It didn’t really sink in until we were on the way to Lincoln to turn it in,” said Timothy. 

Timothy plans on using the winnings to buy a truck and a house. He will also add some of the winnings to his savings. How would you spend the winnings if you won a Mega Millions Match 5 prize?  

Friday’s Mega Millions Jackpot

Christmas is quickly approaching and the next Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated $247 million. Will there be a jackpot winner in time for Christmas? Tickets are available from authorized retailers or fans of the game can choose their numbers online.
