FORT MITCHELL, Ky. (WXIX) - One Northern Kentucky resident won $1 million in the Mega Millions drawing.

Kentucky Lottery officials say the Fort Mitchell resident, who has not been identified, matched all five numbers, but not the Mega Mega ball from Friday night’s game.

The numbers were 24-25-47-52-57 with a Mega Ball of 24, officials said.

Lottery officials said that if the resident matched the Mega Ball as well, that person could have won $117 million.

Staff members have to “execute a series of security checks” before they reveal the ticket holder’s name.

The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim the money.

“We’re looking forward to greeting Kentucky’s newest millionaire,” Kentucky Lottery President and CEO Mary Harville said.
