A woman in Homer in northeast Nebraska
has claimed her prize after winning a 1 million dollar Powerball ticket,
that we told you about yesterday.

Patricia Krontz of Homer had the winning ticket.
Krontz is a regular Powerball player who purchases tickets every week.
She purchased the winning ticket at J & J's Pronto in Homer.
Krontz claimed her prize yesterday afternoon following Saturday's drawing.

She learned she won after a friend told her the winning ticket was sold in Homer, so she went home and checked her tickets.
Krontz says she plans to pay bills using her winnings.
