Another group of people are getting lucky in Kentucky.

The Bluegrass State continued its streak of lottery luck Tuesday night.

According to Kentucky Lottery officials, a $1 Million ticket was sold in Louisville. 

It’s the fourth $1 Million ticket sold in the Commonwealth in the last 17 days.

Last week, Ronnie Parker of Dawson Springs, matched the five white ball numbers but not the Mega Ball to win the game’s second prize from the October 16 drawing. Parker purchased the ticket at Wick’s Well Market and Deli in Madisonville.

In in addition to the $1 Million ticket sold in Louisville Tuesday, two $10,000 tickets were sold in Florence and Lexington.

A $150,000 ticket was also sold in Owensboro last Wednesday.

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.

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.  

Mega Millions describes the jackpot as the largest lottery ever offered in the “worldwide lottery industry”. Only one ticket in South Carolina matched every number, winning the $1.6 Billion jackpot.

The winning numbers: 28, 70, 5, 62, 65 — and the Mega-Ball number is 5.
