He said that he followed up his big jackpot win with another $100 prize winner in Saturday's Super Lotto Plus drawing.

The winning ticket was purchases at Noe Bixby Sunoco on Refugee Road in Columbus. The service station will receive a $22,000 bonus for selling the winner, according to the lottery.

Wallace also is the grandfather of six and great-grandfather of five. He indicated that part of his winnings will help fund trusts for his heirs.

Following mandatory withholding of taxes, Wallace, who selected the cash option payout, will receive a prize check for $7,865,000.

Well, if he really thinks he's figured out how to win, I look foward to seeing his name a few more times in the news edition of this post.  Good luck

    I'm sure his group of friends that he normally play with will want to share his knowledge if not his winnings.  Now with the extra cash, he can try for the MegaMillions jackpot (Ohio other jackpot game).
