$150,000 Powerball ticket sold in Owensboro


One day after a Hopkins County man won $1 Million dollars, a $150,000 lottery ticket has been sold in Owensboro.

According to Kentucky Lottery officials, the ticket was bought at Tobacco Patch on West Parrish Avenue. The store is in the same shopping center as the old KMart across from Moonlite Bar-B-Q.

This Tobacco Patch will receive $1,500 for selling the ticket, according to lottery officials.

The Kentucky Lottery says they have not heard from the winner. The person has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.  

The $150,000 winning ticket was a part of Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing.

The winning Powerball numbers from Wednesday’s drawing are:

3 – 57 – 64 – 68 – 69, with a Powerball of 15.

No one claimed the jackpot in the Powerball, making Saturday’s drawing worth nearly $430 Million.

Ronnie Parker of Dawson Springs won $1 Million in the Tuesday Mega Millions drawing.

According to Kentucky Lottery officials another person in the Commonwealth joined him as a millionaire in the Powerball game.

A ticket sold in Lexington matched all five white ball winning numbers but not the Powerball, winning the game’s second prize of $1 million.

This is the third millionaire created in Kentucky in the past 10 days. On October 8, Ashley Eggen of Elizabethtown won a $1 million prize in the Mega Millions drawing. 

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday night has swelled to $900 million. This will be the second largest lottery jackpot ever in US history.
