- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The winners of the Nenana Ice Classic have officially been notified about receiving a piece of this year's record jackpot of more than $363,000. Charles Zimmerman of Manley Hot Springs is among the holders of 25 winning tickets in the popular annual guessing game. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says Zimmerman's share comes out to almost $14,600 before taxes. After taxes, his take is slightly less than $10,475. To win, people have to guess the date and exact time the ice will break up in the Tanana River in the interior town of Nenana. Each guess takes a $2.50 ticket. The ice broke up this year on April 25 at 3:48 p.m. Alaska Standard Time. This year's jackpot of $363,627 is the largest in the classic's 98 year-history.
