Omaha Man Wins $1 Million in Powerball

CREATED Aug. 14, 2013

Lincoln, NE - Remember that giant Powerball jackpot last week that topped $450 million? An Omaha man didn't split the massive jackpot, but he did win $1 million before taxes. 

Thomas Reiners was working in central Nebraska when he bought a ticket at the Pump & Pantry in Genoa. 

He didn't match the Powerball correctly, but he got all five of the white ball numbers. 

According to a statement from lottery officials, Reiners said, “I was pretty excited when I saw those numbers come up." He said, “It made me very happy.”
