Fremont Man Wins $1 Million Playing Mega Millions

Brant Edgington of Fremont won $1 million playing Mega Millions from the Nebraska Lottery.

Edgington purchased his ticket at Baker's #323 at 1531 N Bell St. in Fremont. The ticket contained five quick pick plays for the March 22 drawing, one of which which matched all of the five winning numbers (03, 08, 31, 35, 44) but not the Mega Ball (16). 

Although his dad and grandfather are avid Mega Millions and Powerball players, Edgington said he really only plays when the jackpot gets high and wasn’t expecting to buy a ticket at all.

He’d stopped into Baker's to grab a premade salad for lunch the next day and decided to play a few bucks worth of Mega Millions.

There was another person ahead of him cashing in a pile of Scratch tickets, but he decided to stick around. It wasn’t until the following Saturday that Edgington take a look at his tickets. 

He’d been trying to use the Check-a-Ticket scanner but was having a little bit of trouble getting it to read and asked a clerk to check it. 

“They disappeared for a minute,” he said. “Then a different lady came up with her and they just stared at me. She told me, ‘Don’t pass out when I tell you this.’” 

Edgington managed to stay on his feet and made his way down to the Nebraska Lottery’s Lincoln offices on April 5 to claim his prize. 

Even though he’s won he’s not sure he’ll keep playing long term. 

“I don’t play all that often,” he said. “As a single parent, baloney is more important, financially.”

All Roads Lead to Fun at the Nebraska State Fair

Did you know that when you buy a Nebraska Lottery ticket, you’re helping the Nebraska State Fair?

In 2004, a constitutional amendment added the State Fair as a Lottery beneficiary and directed 10 percent of lottery proceeds to the Fair each year. A total of $74.8 million has been transferred to date. That funding has allowed the Nebraska State Fair to continue as a premier event for all Nebraskans. Lottery funds are used for ongoing building maintenance and to expand offerings at the Fair. The Fair office also serves as a Regional Lottery Claim Center where players can claim prizes up to $19,999.

All roads lead to fun at the 2024 Nebraska State Fair August 23 – September 2 in Grand Island. Visit to plan your visit. While you’re at the Fair, make sure to look for the Nebraska Lottery trailer for prizes, fun, and your chance to support good causes across Nebraska.
