$1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Tuesday's $648 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot eluded lottery players in Kentuckiana, but someone did match five of the six numbers with a ticket purchased in Louisville that's now worth $1 million.

The ticket was purchased at the Kroger at 12501 Shelbyville Road. It matched the first five numbers in Tuesday's night drawing but not the Mega Ball. The winner has 180 days to claim their prize. 

Kroger will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The winning numbers are 8-20-14-17-39, and the Mega Ball is 7.

Tickets matching all six numbers were sold in California and Georgia. The winners will split the second-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
