Nebraska Advanced Draws

The Multi-Draw option in Nebraska is very prospective, as the number of consecutive draws offered here is enormous. You can enroll in up to 84 plays in advance when choosing in-house games, though the multi-state lotteries offer fewer. Still, they are played several times a week, so 24 consecutive draws go a long way. None of the famous lottery winners have reached a goal the first time, so take notice of this option.

Nebraska Lottery Rules and Laws

The Nebraska Lottery has been here for the locals and the state’s guests since 1993. Though each game is unique, some rules unite them:

  • The legal gambling age in Nebraska starts at 19 years old, and it’s quite unusual considering the fact that most US states allow gambling at 18.
  • The numbers for all the Nebraska Lottery games are drawn by a random number generator (RNG).
  • There is a top prize liability for the 2by2 game. It means that only ten winners can get their full jackpots. If there are more of them, the funds ($220,000 on all weekdays except Tuesdays and $440,000 on Tuesdays) are paid off on a pari-mutuel basis.
  • The liability limit is also relevant for MyDay. Here, it equals $200,000, or 40 top prizes.
  • The winning tickets can be cashed only after 05:00 p.m. CT the day after the drawing took place, so have a little more patience, please.
  • The big prizes of $100,000 and more can be deposited directly into your bank account. It is called the Electronic Funds Transfer option.
