LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Anyone who bought a Powerball ticket in Kentucky is going to want to double-check it.

Kentucky lottery officials say there was a single $128.6 million winning Powerball ticket sold in Georgetown, 65 miles east of Louisville, making it the largest jackpot won in the history of the Kentucky lottery.

The Powerball drawing was Saturday night. The winning numbers were 32, 36, 37, 41, and 53, with a Powerball of 30.

Kentucky Lottery spokesman Chip Polston said Sunday the retailer where the winning ticket was sold will be announced Monday.

He said prior to this jackpot, the largest jackpot won in Kentucky was $89.3 million in January, 1996. He said the last Powerball winner in the state was December 12, 2007, when a Bullitt County man won $33.6 million.

Congratulations to the winner.

I always hope that when I read about a lottery winner that they would come on LP and announce it to us.  I figure that anyone who plays the lottery would naturally be a member of a site like LP.  You know-- meeting with people of the same interest-t and when it finally it hit they can announce it here.  I hope it happens one day,  especially if im the originator.

Has anyone read the book "The lottery" by Patricia Wood?  I have it on audiobook and cant count the number of times I've listened to it.  I even wrote the author telling her how much I loved it.    Its a cross between Forrest Gump and The Curse of the Lottery and Jackpot Diaries.  I like reading about lottery winners and although its fiction, its a great storyline.
