Julie Leach, 50, immediately quit her job as an employee at Aquatic Co. upon finding that she was the sole winner of last week’s $310.5 million jackpot.
She matched all five numbers – 21 39 40 55 59 – and the Powerball 17.
Leach opted for the lump sum payout of $197.4 million, which will amount to $140 million after taxes.
Another player from North Platte, Randy Houpt, won $1 million playing Nebraska Powerball from the September 30 drawing, matching five of the numbers.
