Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Ohio

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Ohio

A single player from Ohio has won the grand prize from the latest Mega Millions lotto drawing.


Lottery officials said the winning ticket from Tuesday night's drawing - worth an estimated $20 million - was sold in Ohio.  Ohio lottery spokeswoman Mardele Cohen said the ticket was sold at Food City Supermarket in Dayton.


Ten players matched all five numbers but not the Mega Ball number. Each second-place ticket was worth $175,000.


Also, 22 players matched four numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Each ticket was worth $5,000.


The winning numbers from Friday night's drawing were: 25, 30, 35, 40 and 50. The Mega Ball number was 4.

      I can't believe that somebody played that weird set of numbers (multiples of five)!  I wonder if this winner will come forward before the $239 million winner?

          Question for anyone??...............Do any of you play MegaMillions online???  I live in a State that does not participate. I would need to play online. Like most,I am wary of that process. It seems legit from what I've read. For instance,the recent win was purchased at a conveince store,which is how I normally play Powerball. Has a big win ever been online?? I'm just thinking I need to expand my chances with other games. This type of "gambling" is fun! :)

              JetSet,

              I play on the online sites advertised on the left side of this page.  I have had absolutely no problems with the service -- they are a joy to use.  I recommend using them to anyone who wants to participate.  Also, even thought I live in a MM state, I travel a lot, so it helps me participate in MM for those times when I'm out of state.

              The most I've won using the service has been $100 in Powerball - which was credited to my account within 1 hour of the drawing!

               

              Check the State Lottery Report Card
              What grade did your lottery earn?
