A winning Powerball jackpot ticket was sold at a Gretna convienence store.

The Speedee Mart at 431 S. Highway 6 sold a winning ticket for Wednesday's drawing. A second ticket was sold in Massachusetts for the estimated $122 million annuity jackpot.

The Nebraska Lottery confirmed the sale Wednesday. The winner has not yet been identified.

This is the 10th Powerball jackpot won in Nebraska since the Nebraska Lottery began offering Powerball in July 1994. The last time the jackpot was won in Nebraska was in February 2006 when a group of eight coworkers at the ConAgra facility split a $365 million jackpot.


Powerball jackpot winners have two options for collecting their payment: 30 annuity payments or one cash payment at present value. The annuity option provides annual payments that increase each year. The present cash value is less than the advertised jackpot, which is based on the 29-year annuity option.
