Winner claims Powell Co. Lucky for Life prize
SLADE, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Kentucky Lottery says an anonymous person has stepped forward to claim their prize after a Lucky for Life ticket was sold in Powell County.
The winner opted to take the $5,750,000 cash option, instead of the $1,000 dollars a day for life annuity prize.
The winning ticket was sold at Go Time on Campton Road in Slade.
The store received a $73,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Winning “Lucky for Life” ticket sold in Powell Co.
A very lucky Kentucky Lottery player has matched the five white ball winning numbers as well as the Lucky Ball from Monday’s Lucky for Life drawing, winning the game’s top prize of $1000 a day for life!
The winning numbers are: 3 – 13 – 23 – 44 – 48 Lucky Ball 11
The winning ticket was sold at a Kentucky Lottery retailer in Powell County. “There will be a series of security measures that will be taken first thing Tuesday by our staff at the retailer where the ticket was sold,” said the Lottery’s Sr. Vice President of Communications Chip Polston. “Once that security operation is complete, we will be able to release the location of the retailer.”
The player has 180 days from Monday’s draw to claim their prize, and must present their winning ticket at Kentucky Lottery headquarters located on Main Street in Louisville.
The $1000 a day prize has a minimum 20 year payment period, and would become part of the winner’s estate if they did not survive that long.
