$128.6 million ticket sold in Georgetown

A single winning Powerball ticket worth $128.6 million has been sold in Georgetown.

The winning numbers are: 32, 36, 37, 41, 53; Powerball: 30.

The cash option for the winning ticket is $63.4 million, lottery officials announced Sunday. The odds of winning the grand prize are one in 195,249,054.

The largest winning jackpot in Kentucky before Sunday was an $89.3 million awarded in January 1996. The last Powerball winner in Kentucky was in December 2007, when a Bullitt County man claimed a $33.6 million jackpot. This win marks the 17th time a Kentucky player has won Powerball's top prize.

The retailer where the winning ticket was sold will not be released until Monday morning for security reasons, said Kentucky Lottery Vice President of Communications Chip Polston.
