The $1,000,000 ticket matched all five numbers but not the Powerball in the February 1st drawing.
The winning numbers were: 8 – 13 – 17 – 34 – 59 and the Powerball was 35.
The winning ticket was sold at Midway Travel Plaza in Frankfort. The retailer will receive $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.
Kentucky Lottery Corporation officials encourage the ticket holder to sign the back of the ticket immediately. The winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
This is the second $1 million winning Powerball ticket that has been won in Kentucky since the price of a ticket went up to $2 on January 15th. Joseph Bennett of Covington claimed the first million dollar ticket from the January 28, 2012 drawing, since the game changed.
Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $200 million with a cash option amount of $125.1 million.
