Omaha man claims Powerball prize just before it expires
Omaha's Robert Abraham cut it close but showed up in time for a million dollar payday.
The winning Powerball ticket, with a $1 million prize, was purchased for the April 18th drawing.
One ticket sold in Nebraska matched all five winning white ball numbers (09, 10, 12, 17, 23). The ticket was sold at the Kwik Shop at 2103 Capehart Road in Bellevue.
Nobody showed up to claim the prize and the ticket was going to expire on Monday, Oct. 15. It had a 180 day shelf life.
Abraham solved that by showing up Friday, October 12th. He said he wasn't interested in publicity but agreed to the release of his name, hometown and prize amount.
