Winning Mega Millions lottery ticket sold in Cincinnati

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Winning Mega Millions lottery ticket sold in Cincinnati

The winning ticket from the $265 million Mega Millions drawing Tuesday night was sold at a local Kroger supermarket, an Ohio Lottery spokeswoman said.

It was the fifth winning Mega Millions ticket purchased in Ohio since June and the first grand prize winner sold in Cincinnati, lottery spokeswoman Mardele Cohen said.

The winning numbers in the 12-state game were 13, 14, 25, 34 and 50. The Mega Ball was 6.

In addition to the grand prize winner, 21 tickets, including two purchased in Ohio, matched all five numbers but not the Mega Ball for prizes of $250,000 each.  Tho

Another 109 tickets, including four from Ohio, matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball for third prizes of $10,000 each.

The last Mega Millions winner from Ohio claimed the $270 million prize — the biggest lottery jackpot won in the state — anonymously by forming a trust.

The winning ticket from the Feb. 28 drawing was sold in Lyons, a farming village of about 600 people 30 miles west of Toledo.

Well-

Its back to the drawing board for everyone.  Powerball, EuroMillions nor Mega Millions hit the $300m benchmark!  Oh well, somewhere this summer, one of them will be at $300m!

      It is amazing how many times Ohio wins this. Illinois, Texas, Washington, we get nothing.

            I know this is crazy....how does Ohio keep getting the winners.  That is two major jackpots in a row now that have gone there.  Not only that but it seems like a bunch of large jackpots have gone in that state in the past couple years and they don't even sell that many tickets.

              I guess it depends on a couple of things like if people won with their own numbers or with qpicks. it's possible that Ohio's qpick machines generators print out more diverse picks than other states.

              I know Maryland has almost been out of the loop on matching 5 out of 6. I have bought 5 qpicks picks from two different places here and got almost the same numbers from both places.

              A couple times we had a pool of 10 people and bought 100 tickets and at least 40 tickets had repeat digits and series numbers. Hardly any of the 100 tickets had numbers that weren't on another line.

                  It is pure and simple luck which numbers come out and where the ticket is sold. I think you are overanalyzing Ohio. It is just the luck of the draw.

                    I was wondering the same thing.  Thats how I found this site.  Is there any way to find out how many tickets are sold in each state?

                        That's because everyone knows that Ohio lottery winners can remain anonymous if an attorney can claim the prize through a trust.  Three of the four states that border Ohio (Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania) don't even sell Mega Millions tickets.  Those four states sell Powerball tickets.  Michigan sells Mega Millions tickets, and some Michigan winners have claimed smaller prizes anonymously, but I don't think that Mega Millions winners in Michigan can claim a larger prize ($100 million or larger) anonymously.  If you want to claim a Mega Million jackpot prize anonymously, Ohio is definitely the place to be.

                        Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

                        If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!
