FREMONT, Neb. (AP) - A Fremont man has claimed his $1 million Powerball prize from the Nebraska Lottery.

Zach Norenberg’s winning ticket had five of the winning numbers but didn’t match the Powerball number in the March 6 drawing. He bought the ticket at a Hy-Vee gas station in Fremont. Another $1 million ticket was sold in Texas.

Norenberg told lottery officials that he bought some tickets on a whim while dropping off his daughter before he went to work. He says he picked numbers based on the birthdays of family members.

He and his wife plan to use some of the money to pay off their student loans and their mortgage.
