Two Winning Powerball Tickets Sold in Kentucky
Lottery fever has struck Kentucky twice in two days. One of the winning Powerball tickets was sold in Owensboro.
A $150,000 wining ticket, that's four matching numbers and the Powerball, was sold at Tobacco Patch on West Parrish Avenue. The store will receive $1,500 for selling the ticket. No word on the winner just yet.
Another million dollar ticket was sold in Lexington. The winner matched five numbers but not the Powerball. On Tuesday, Ronnie Parker of Dawson Springs claimed a million dollar prize from Mega Millions.
Both the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots still have no winners. The Mega Millions jackpot ahead of Friday night's drawing currently stands at $970 million and it might even surpass a billion before the next drawing. The current Powerball jackpot stands at $430 million ahead of this Saturday night's drawing.
The Mega Millions payout would be the second-largest in U.S. history. And if it continues to go unclaimed after Friday, who knows?
