(LEX 18)– While no one from Kentucky won Tuesday night’s world-record Mega Millions jackpot, one Kentuckian did win the game’s second prize of $1 million.
The ticket, sold in Louisville, matched all five white ball winning numbers but not the Mega Ball. The winning numbers are: 5 – 28 – 62 – 65 – 70 with a Mega Ball of 5.
Staff members from the KY Lottery’s security department will perform a series of security measures at the store, and after those are completed the name of the winning retailer will be disclosed.
This is the fourth $1 million ticket sold in Kentucky over the past 17 days. Three of the winners were from the Mega Millions game. The other $1 million winner was a Powerball ticket, which has a jackpot up for grabs Wednesday of $620 million.
Also, two $10,000 tickets–which matched four of the five white ball winning numbers and the Mega Ball– were sold Tuesday night in Florence. Lottery officials initially reported that one of the tickets was sold in Lexington, but that was incorrect. The two were sold at the following locations:
Mt. Zion Sunoco
430 Mt. Zion Road
Brickhouse Pub N Grub
7718 US Highway 42
