Lincoln man is Mega Millionaire

Richard Evans

A Lincoln man is $1 million richer after winning Mega Millions.

Richard Evans showed up at the Nebraska Lottery to collect his prize Wednesday, which he won with a five-play quick pick ticket. Evans saw his prize quadruple from $250,000 to $1 million because he spent an extra $1 adding a Megaplier option to his ticket. Nebraska lottery officials say Evans is the first person in the state to win the $1 million prize since it began offering Mega Millions a year ago. Evans says he plans to pay bills and save for retirement.
