KENTON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Mega Millions lottery drew another $1 million Kentucky winner, making it the second in one week.

Friday's Mega Million drawing led a ticket sold in Erlanger to match all five white ball winning numbers but not the Mega Ball. It won the game's second prize of $1 million.

The winning Mega Millions number from last night's drawing was 2 - 5 - 29 - 64 - 69 with a Mega Ball of 18.

If the ticket holder had also matched the Mega Ball number of 18, they would have won $36 million.

Last Friday, the $1 million prize was won in Richmond, Kentucky.

The name of the newest Kentucky millionaire has not been released.
