The Kentucky Lottery said a lucky player in Louisville bought a lucky ticket in Monday night’s Lucky for Life drawing, giving them $25,000 a year for life.
The player has not yet stepped forward to claim the second-place prize, but the winning ticket was sold in Louisville at Clifton 1st Liquor, 1904 Frankfort Ave., according to the Kentucky Lottery.
The winning ticket matched the first five white ball numbers but not the Lucky Ball in Monday night’s drawing in order to win the game’s second prize.
The winning ticket numbers are:
6 – 12 – 16 – 19 – 22 with a Lucky Ball of 2.
The retailer that sold the ticket also receives a nice gift in the form of a $5,000 bonus, according to lottery officials.

“We advise the winner to sign the back of their ticket immediately. We are currently asking winners to make an appointment to claim their prize by calling 800-937-8946 to schedule a time,” Kentucky Lottery officials said in a news release. “The winner has 180 days from (Monday) night’s drawing to claim their prize at Kentucky Lottery headquarters in Louisville.”
Lucky for Life is played in 25 different states and Washington, D.C., with drawings held on Mondays and Thursday.
The $25,000 a year payout has a guaranteed minimum of 20 years and would become part of a winner’s estate if they passed away before that timeframe ended.
The payment is an annual sum of $25,000 before taxes, with second-place winners also able to choose a cash option instead of an annual payment.
