Jennifer Cunningham of the Kentucky Lottery said her records show that the winning ticket sold on April 20 at the Murphy Express on Bypass Road was claimed nine days later. She said she has made attempts to speak with the winner, but her calls have not been returned.

She said the winner was from Winchester and purchased a $10 Mega Millions ticket consisting of five sets of numbers and chose to let the terminal pick them, a process known as “quick pick.”

The winning numbers for the April 20 drawing were 6 – 23 – 43 – 49 – 52 and Mega Ball 25. The ticket matched the five white ball numbers but not the Mega Ball to win the game’s second prize (Line C).

After taxes, the winner received a check for $710,000. Murphy Express will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

Tuesday night’s Mega Millions jackpot was estimated to be $396 million.
