Ohio lottery ticket wins $261.6M Powerball jackpot

PowerballPowerball: Ohio lottery ticket wins $261.6M Powerball jackpot

Big win comes just two months after game goes on sale in state

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Ohio has a $261.6 million Powerball winner less than two months after the state joined the multi-state lottery game.

The Ohio Lottery says the only winning ticket matching all six numbers in Wednesday night's drawing was sold at a store in Sunbury, about 20 miles north of Columbus in central Ohio.

Lottery officials planned to present the Hub Carry Out & Deli with a check for $100,000 Thursday morning for selling the winning ticket. Clerk Rose Ong says it's a "wonderful" feeling and says the store doesn't know who the winner is.

The drawing's winning numbers were 4, 9, 14, 39, and 43.  The Powerball number was 38, and the Power Play multiplier was 4.

In addition to the Ohio jackpot winner, 13 lucky players across the United States matched the first 5 numbers for a $200,000 prize:  4 from Florida (1 with Power Play), 1 from Illinois, 1 from Iowa, 1 from Kentucky, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from North Carolina (with Power Play), 1 from South Carolina (with Power Play), 2 from Tennessee, and 1 from Texas.

The three second-prize winners from Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina who purchased the Power Play option will each receive a $1 million prize.

Ohio retailers sold their very first Powerball tickets April 16.

Powerball is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

More information about Powerball, as well as drawings and news, can be found at USA Mega (www.usamega.com).

                    Lottery jackpot won in OH... Congrats to the winner...

                    Now for the venting... Ohio was only in Powerball for 2 months they held out to be in Powerball... i now truly think the game is rigged... remember when FL joined, not 2-3 months later they had a big money winner. Now when and if CA joins Powerball, give them 2 months and boom a winner for them too.

                    Yes i am a sore looser... but...... i do again wish the winner congrats.  

                    And i hope that one of my states can win the jackpot next time...

                            I'm from mid-Ohio not central Ohio.  Mid-Ohio area is up near Mansfield, home of the Mid-Ohio race track.  Besides, all the combinations I pick to play have at least one WB number from the previous 13 drawings, that will no longer be true about my future picks.
