Sharp didn't notice he'd won until his sister told him there'd been a winner in Bruning. He said he's been playing the same numbers -- 5, 8, 26, 34 and 38 -- every day for about six months, according to the news release.

Sharp plans to use his winnings to buy a new pickup truck. 

The odds of winning the Nebraska Pick 5 jackpot are 1 in 501,942. The jackpot starts at $50,000 and grows by $4,000 after each drawing that is not won.
