LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky Lottery officials say a very lucky person bought a winning $1 million lottery ticket at the Blue Sky Marathon on Clays Mill Road Saturday night.

That's just two miles from a convenience store that sold another $1 million lottery ticket a few days ago.

We're told the newest ticket won a second place prize of a million dollars after matching the first five numbers of the $70 million Powerball jackpot.

The Kentucky Lottery tells us the winner hasn't come forward yet.

Lottery officials say Wednesday a person at the Dairy Mart on East Reynolds Road bought five Cash Ball tickets, then played the same combination of numbers on all the tickets and the numbers hit.

A clerk at the Dairy Mart tells us since they sold the winning tickets quite a few more lottery hopefuls have been stopping by.

The Kentucky Lottery announced where the newest winning ticket was sold Monday morning.

For David Rubio, the thought of winning a million bucks was enough to make him play the lottery for the first time.

"I've never bought one in my life but I went ahead and bought one. I may not win a million but hopefully I'll win something," he said.

The Powerball jackpot is now up to an estimated $80 million. The next drawing will be Wednesday.
