A $100 million jackpot has been announced for someone who wins a $50,000 electronic lottery ticket from a retailer.
The $50 million jackpots, announced by lottery officials on Thursday, were created through a special “gift” lottery for lottery winners.
The winner of the jackpot must provide the retailer with a “gifts” certificate or a $5,000 voucher.
The jackpot is expected to be worth around $10 million.
A spokesperson for the Kentucky Lottery told The Associated Press that the company is not confirming any jackpot winners.
“We don’t have any information to share about this jackpot,” spokeswoman Emily McAllister said.
“All we know is that it’s a special gift, and that’s what we’re going to share.”
The US Department of Labor has issued an alert about the potential for a $10-million jackpot for lottery tickets, which are considered “gifted” in the state of Kentucky.
The lottery’s website says it “may not be possible for the winner of a lottery to receive the gift, provided that the winner provides the gift to the store or a third party vendor.”
The website says the gift certificate is issued to the lottery company or vendor for the purpose of “certifying the winner for a gift.”
It says the vendor must verify the gift with the federal government, and the vendor “shall return the certificate to the winner within seven calendar days of receipt of the certificate.”
Kentucky Lotteries is offering the certificates at $5.50 apiece.
The US Postal Service is also offering the vouchers for $2,500 each.
