Lottery players flock to "lucky" Richmond store

RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - Grab those tickets! The numbers for Wednesday night's record-setting Powerball worth $550 million were drawn.

The winning Powerball numbers are 5-16-22-23-29 and the Powerball is 6.

Wednesday night folks lined up in stores all across the Bluegrass to buy tickets, hoping they'd beat the odds and strike it rich. WKYT went to a store many consider to be lucky in Richmond, Jack's BP.

For some, you have to play at the right location. For others, you've got to try out a lot more spots than one.

"I go to multiple stores. I just think my chances are better of winning. They've been multiple tickets sold at Jack's BP," explained lottery player Donal Carroll.

Richmond has seen its fair share of lottery winners in the past. That may be why so many were lined up to get their ticket from Jack's BP Wednesday night.

The most recent big win at Jack's BP was a ticket worth $10,000.
