Kentucky Lottery Awards Gas Station for Selling Winning Ticket

The Ohio County gas station that sold a million dollar winning Powerball ticket last month gets their own prize today. The owners of Charlie’s Family Market in Hartford got a ten thousand dollar check from Kentucky Lottery. The store sold the million dollar ticket two weeks ago, but lottery officials say the winner claimed his prize anonymously. This isn’t the first time his store sold a winner.

Another store he owned in Georgia sold a million dollar ticket ten years ago.”I’m so excited for selling the million dollar ticket. When I sold the customer the million dollar ticket, they say they’re happy and this is their lucky store now,” said Raj Patel.The owner says he plans on using some of the money to renovate his market.
