Scream when you win. I hear screams all the time when I visit lottery headquarters around the world.
Rex Luebbe of Central City, Nebraska, said he’s not the screaming type, but that all changed when he won $150,000 playing the Lottery’s $10 Scratch game “Lucky Numbers”.
Luebbe purchased his winning Lucky Numbers ticket at Pump & Pantry, on G Street in Central City. Scratching the ticket, he revealed two matching numbers with a corresponding prize of $150,000.
There are two $150,000 top prizes available in Lucky Numbers. Luebbe is the first person to win a top prize to date.
While claiming his prize on January 28, Luebbe said that he screamed after scratching the ticket and realizing he had won the $150,000 top prize.
Luebbe plans to pay bills, purchase a boat and a camper, and take a vacation using his winnings.
