Novak and her husband purchased a few $2.00 Trucks and Bucks lottery tickets at The Still on a day just like any other. With a smile, she said she was genuinely surprised and shocked to discover herself a lucky winner.

Neil Watson with the Nebraska Lottery said the odds of winning a top prize are 1 in 336,000 and the overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.69.

Friends and family attended the event to claim her prize and to offer their sincere congratulations.

Lighthearted jokes were made about Novak no longer driving her Honda.

Novak is the third person to win a top prize so far. There are a total of eight trucks to be won through the Trucks and Bucks scratch-off tickets in 2022.

The mission of the Nebraska Lottery is to generate proceeds for good causes while providing high-quality entertainment options for Nebraskans. More than $855 million has been raised for the Nebraska Lottery’s Beneficiary Funds since 1993.

Officials reported all 93 counties in Nebraska have benefited from projects funded with these Nebraska Lottery proceeds.

Five trucks remain for prospective lucky winners.  -30-
