LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Although no one in Kentucky won a share of Wednesday night's record-breaking $587.5 million jackpot, one ticket was sold that matched all five of the white balls drawn but not the Powerball.
According to a news release from Kentucky Lottery headquarters, that ticket is worth $1 million. The ticket was sold at the Five Star Food Mart #7676 at 10306 US Highway 42 in Prospect KY, located just outside of Louisville.
The Five Star Food Mart General Manager says she knows the winner who is a regular customer. But she says she will not release that person's name. She says the one million dollar winning ticket was sold on Wednesday. The Kentucky Lottery says the store will also get a $10,000 selling bonus for selling a winning ticket.
The winning ticket will have these white ball winning numbers: 5 16 22 23 29.
Chip Polston, the Kentucky Lottery's VP of communications, advises the winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately and bring it to lottery headquarters on Main Street in Louisville to claim their prize. Winners have 180 days to claim their prize.
In all, there were nearly 125,000 winning tickets sold in Kentucky for last night's drawing with prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million.
In Indiana, Larry Chandler from Highland claimed his one million dollar winning ticket. He says he will use the money to help his mother, start a college fund for his daughter and take his girlfriend to Red Lobster. The 34-year-old electrician says he'll be back on the job Monday morning after he meets with a tax advisor and a financial planner.
A one million dollar ticket was also sold in Vincennes.
