It wasn't the big $380 million jackpot, but someone in Scott County still won a lot of money from Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.
Kentucky Lottery officials say a Mega Millions ticket, worth $1 million, was sold at Apple Market #5010 in Georgetown.
The ticket matched five white ball numbers, but not the Mega Ball, in the drawing.
Normally, the prize would be worth $250,000. However, lottery officials say the winner paid an extra dollar for the Megaplier prize multiplier feature, so the prize was multiplied four times to $1 million.
The Apple Market is across the street from a Marathon gas station that sold a winning Powerball ticket, worth $128.6 million, in December 2009.
Lottery officials say another ticket for last night's drawing, worth $250,000, was sold in Highland Heights in northern Kentucky.
Two tickets matched all six winning numbers for Tuesday's drawing.
One was sold at a grocery store in Ephrata, Washington.
The other was sold in Idaho.
The two winners will split the jackpot, which lottery officials say was actually $380 million because of feverish sales shortly before the drawing.
The winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, and 47, with the Mega Ball number being 42.
