12/31/07 Shepherdsville Powerball Winner Steps Forward
December 13, 2007
The $33.6 million winning Powerball ticket from last night’s drawing has been presented to Kentucky Lottery officials in Louisville. The winner, who bought the ticket at the 44 Quick Stop located at 2329 Highway 44 West, claimed the cash option prize of $16.47 million ($11.36 million after taxes) earlier today and wished to remain anonymous. The ticket was a $5 quick-pick.
The $33.6 million jackpot was the 11 th largest in Kentucky Lottery history. It was also Kentucky’s second winner of the big game in the past 11 weeks. In late September, 22 workers at the Nukote office in Bardstown split a $61.5 million jackpot.
The retailer will receive a $28,600 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
