Lottery winner says his ticket was a mistake


LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY (WKOW) -- Some would call winning the lottery a lucky break, but for the largest lottery prize winner in Kentucky history, he's calling it a mistake.

Rob Anderson claimed the $128.6 million dollar prize Wednesday.

He says he bought three $1 tickets at a gas station as gifts, but in error the cashier printed three sets of quick-pick numbers on one ticket.

Anderson kept the ticket with the winning numbers and bought three other tickets he gave away as gifts.

He and his wife haven't decided whether to take the prize in one lump-sum or in annual installments.
