Nebraska is one of 20+ states that offer the Lucky for Life draw game. Other states include Idaho, Delaware, and South Dakota.

Players must select 5 numbers from 1-48 and a Lucky Ball number from 1-18. To win the jackpot, a player must match all 6 winning draw numbers. This wins them $1,000 a day for life. The second prize, meanwhile, grants $25,000 a year for life to players who match all 5 regular numbers but not the Lucky Ball.
