LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A ticket sold in Nicholasville for Saturday night’s Powerball drawing matched all five white ball winning numbers but not the Powerball, winning the game’s second prize of $1 million.
The winning Powerball numbers were:
2 – 3 – 14 – 40 – 51 with a Powerball of 24.
If the ticket holder had also matched the Powerball number of 24, they would have won $158 million.
Kentucky Lottery officials say the ticket was sold at Circle K #3248 on Bellerive Boulevard in Nicholasville. Circle K will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
In the meantime, the winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it in a secure location. The winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize, which has to be done at the lottery’s headquarters in Louisville. Polston said the winner will need to contact the lottery’s claims office at 800-937-8946 to set up an appointment to claim their prize.
“We’re looking forward to greeting Kentucky’s newest millionaire,” Polston said.
