Alex Parker of Oldham County won a million dollars after matching five numbers correctly, he missed the powerball, costing him a share of the 588-million dollar jackpot.

Parker bought the ticket at the Five Star Food Mart in Prospect. The 23-year-old lives with his parents and works at his father's business.
