LINCOLN MAN WINS $10,000 PLAYING NO HOLDING BACK
March 18, 2017

William McFarland of Lincoln won $10,000 playing No Holding Back from the Nebraska Lottery.  
The winning ticket was purchased at Kwik Shop, 2811 N. 48th St. in Lincoln.

While claiming his prize March 3, MacFarland told lottery officials that he plays occasionally and was very surprised when he learned what he had won.

“I’m very happy about winning and I win occasionally,” he said. “I feel grateful and I want to do things the right way.”

McFarland has a few ideas of what he wants to do with the money. As a native of Maine, he grew up being a fan of a baseball team just down the coast – the Boston Red Sox. He hopes to catch a Red Sox game in either Kansas City or St. Louis with his wife over the summer. McFarland has a deep seeded interest in genealogy and wants to use some of the funds to help him learn more about his ancestry. He also plans to donate to charity.

As a $10 Scratch game from the Nebraska Lottery, No Holding Back offers players the chance to win cash prizes from $10 to $200,000. The chances of winning $10,000 are 1 in 90,000 while the chances of winning any prizes are 1 in 2.65.
