An Alexandria man won a million dollars by playing a Kentucky Lottery scratch-off game.
The winner, who wants to remain anonymous, bought the $20 200x ticket after winning $100 on a previous ticket. He'd never played the game before, according to Kentucky Lottery officials.
While scratching off his numbers, he found he matched the million-dollar prize.
Shocked, the clerk at Alexandria Carryout suggested he scan it to double check. Sure enough, it was a winner.
When he claimed the prize at the lottery headquarters in Louisville, he told them he hadn't slept.
The lump-sum payout was $914,000. After taxes, he took home a check for $658,940.
He said he plans to put most of the money in the bank and cover medical bills.
“I’m a simple guy and everything is paid for,” he said.
Alexandria Carryout gets a $9,140 bonus for selling that winning ticket.
