Local Stores Profit From Large Powerball Jackpot

By Lindsey Yates | 

While no one in Kentucky matched the five white ball winning numbers and the powerball from last nights $600 million dollar drawing there are a pair of new millionaires in Kentucky.

Tickets sold in Vine Grove and Buckner matched the five white ball numbers to win the game's $1 million dollar prize.

In addition, tickets in Isom and LaGrange matched four of the five white ball winning numbers but not the Powerball, winning $10,000.

Local stores also cashed in on the big jackpot by selling thousands of dollars worth of tickets.

Minit mart on Campbell Lane says yesterday they sold 538 tickets totaling more than $2,500.

"I noticed sales were increased quite a bit compared to what we usually do. We're one of the smaller stores we don't usually do a lot but when it gets up really high people get crazy. They buy, says Tony Holland," cashier at Minit Mart.

The record-breaking jackpot was won by a single ticket in Florida.

Just in case you missed it the winning numbers are, 10-13-14-22-52, with a Powerball of 11.
