Sailors purchased her winning ticket at Casey’s #2973 at 3500 N 48th St. in Lincoln. The ticket contained three quick pick plays for the June 22 drawing, one of which matched that night’s winning numbers 04, 11, 22, 24 and 27.

This isn’t Sailors’ first Pick 5 win, but it was her largest. Back in June of 2019 she claimed a $54,000 Pick 5 jackpot.

Both of those wins were on tickets printed by mistake. This time around, Sailors bought the extra ticket that had accidentally been printed, same as she did in 2019.

“I don’t let the mistakes go,” she said. “I can’t just let them sit there.”

Sailors and her husband Monte said they’re planning on paying off their daughter’s student loan with their winnings and putting the rest in the bank.
