LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Kentucky Lottery player from Lexington, Ky. has won $25,000 a year for life with a Lucky for Life ticket bought via the internet.
This is the largest winner sold online since the Kentucky Lottery first started selling tickets via the internet in April 2016.
The ticket matched all the white ball winning numbers drawn last night but not the Lucky Ball, thus winning the game’s second prize. The winning numbers are: 14-16-19-23-27 with a Lucky Ball of 14.
According to Kentucky Lottery spokesman Chip Polston, the winner will need to come to Lottery headquarters in Louisville to claim their prize, and they have 180 days from yesterday to come forward. They’ll need to bring a valid photo ID, and will complete an online process to claim their winnings.
If the player had matched all the white balls and the Lucky Ball, they would’ve won the game’s top prize of $1,000 a day for life.
