UPDATE 8/18/17 @ 3 p.m.

GARRISON, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A man has stepped forward to claim the prize of $1,000 a day for life.

David Jordan, 54, of Quincy, purchased the winning ticket in Garrison Thursday.

According to a release, Jordan found a penny heads up on the ground and picked it up before buying the winning ticket.

Jordan called his employer Friday morning and was given the day off once he shared the good news.

According to a release, Jordan opted to take the cash option prize instead of the annuity payout.

He will receive $5,750,000 before taxes.

The first thing he plans to do is buy his daughter a new home, and he said he would also like to by himself a new home in the near future.


GARRISON, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A lottery ticket sold in Lewis County has secured someone the prize of $1,000 a day for life.

The winning numbers were 37, 36, 31, 17, 12 and the Lucky Ball was 9.

Lottery officials will execute a series of security measures at the retailer, and once those are complete the name of the retailer will be released.

This is Kentucky’s second winner in the Lucky for Life game. The first winning ticket sold in Kentucky was in May at a retailer in Powell County.

The $1000 a day payout has a guaranteed minimum of 20 years, and would become part of a winner’s estate if they passed away before that time frame. The winner has 180 days from last night’s drawing to claim their prize at Kentucky Lottery headquarters in Louisville.
