By  | 

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - A Pendleton County man is the lucky winner of a $50,000 Powerball prize.

Eric Garrison's ticket matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball in last Wednesday's drawing. He purchased the ticket at Love’s Travel Stop #618 in Sadieville.

Garrison says he plays the same set of numbers each drawing. It paid off.

Garrison has a lucky family. His wife won a $2.6 million prize in March of 1999.

Garrison, a retired Sears service repairman, currently works three jobs to keep busy. He said there are no significant plans for his winnings but that it might be time for his wife to get a new car.
