BENNINGTON, Neb. -- Authorities say a Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold in the eastern Nebraska community of Bennington.

The ticket matched the first five numbers in Saturday night's Powerball drawing but missed on the Powerball number. The ticket was sold at a Cubby's convenience store. A ticket sold in Raymond, New Hampshire, matched all the numbers to win the $487 million jackpot.

Nebraska Lottery spokesman Brian Rockey said Monday that the $1 million prize hasn't been claimed yet. Winning Nebraska Lottery tickets expire 180 days after the drawing. Prizes of $20,000 or more must be claimed in person at Nebraska Lottery headquarters in Lincoln.
