Mega Millions Winner Comes Forward

Posted: Updated:

LOUISA, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A winning Mega Millions ticket was sold in Tuesday night’s drawing worth $1 million!

The ticket matched five white ball numbers and not the Mega Ball to win the game’s second prize. The winning numbers for the February 13 drawing were 5 – 12 –15 – 46 – 49 Mega Ball 1. 

The winning ticket was sold at BP #17 at 206 W. Madison Street in Louisa.

The retailer that sold the winning ticket will receive a selling bonus of $10,000.

Wednesday morning around 6:30 a.m., the Lawrence County man stopped at the gas station to check his Mega Millions ticket from the drawing.  The clerk scanned his ticket and informed him that he’d won too much for the store to pay. 

“We checked the winning numbers against my ticket and I was like, okay.  At first I figured it was probably $1,000 but after researching further, I found out it was much more,” he said. 

The Louisa resident is looking ahead to retirement and says his winnings will help. After taxes, he received a check for $700,000.
