ERLANGER, Ky. - While many Tri-State residents may be let down they didn’t win the Powerball’s $337 million jackpot Wednesday night, they may want to give their tickets a second look as a winning ticket was sold in Northern Kentucky.
The Kentucky Lottery announced Thursday morning that a $1 million winning ticket was sold at a Speedway store at 631 Donaldson Highway in Erlanger. The winning ticket from Erlanger matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball to win the game’s second place prize.
The winning numbers are 6 – 27 – 46 – 51 – 56 POWERBALL 21.
The exact location where the winning ticket was sold will be announced later Thursday after several security procedures have taken place, said Kentucky Lottery spokesperson Sarah Westerman in a news release.
Players should check their tickets and sign the back of it if the numbers match. The winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
The $337 million Powerball ticket was sold at a Sunoco gas station in Michigan . The Michigan Lottery has not released information about the winner’s identity or if that winner has come forward yet.
There are eight $1 million tickets from the Powerball, including the one sold in Kentucky. Of the remaining tickets, two were sold in Indiana while others were sold in Kansas, New Jersey and New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
There was also a ticket sold in Nebraska that added the Power Play to win $2 million.
