$1 million Powerball ticket sold in Lexington; jackpot swells to $430 million

A ticket sold in Lexington for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing matched the five white ball winning numbers but not the Powerball, winning the game's second prize of $1 million.

The last winners: Powerball on August 11 and Mega Millions on July 24.

"Since these changes, three of the six largest Mega Millions jackpots have been paid out", he says.

Mega Millions lottery tickets rest on a counter at a Pilot travel center near Burlington, N.C. On July 1, 2016. The winning ticket was purchased at Minit Mart on Leestown Road.

There was also a $150,000 winning Powerball ticket sold in Owensboro for Wednesday night's drawing. In Arizona, people who win more than $600 can keep their names secret for 90 days after claiming prizes, but after that names are public record.
