Although no one won the $169 million Powerball jackpot in Wednesday night’s drawing, there was a ticket worth $1,000,000 sold in Kentucky. The winning ticket was sold at Merrick Shell Food Mart at 2048 Merrick Drive in Richmond. The retailer will receive $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.
The winning numbers were: 2 – 9 – 26 – 45 – 47 and the Powerball was 11.
The winning ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball to win the game’s second prize of $1,000,000.
Kentucky Lottery Corporation officials encourage the ticket holder(s) to sign the back of the ticket immediately. The winner(s) has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $203 million with a cash option amount of $115.5 million.
