Ohio player wins $250K in Mega Millions game

Published:

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Ohio has a quarter-million-dollar winner from the latest Mega Millions drawing.

The Ohio Lottery said Wednesday that a ticket sold at a beverage and liquor store in Cleveland matched the five regular numbers on Tuesday but missed the Mega Ball number. That's good for a $250,000 prize in the multistate lottery game.

Nationwide, no one had all the winning numbers to take the $15 million jackpot in Tuesday night's drawing. The top prize rises to an estimated $23 million for the next drawing, on Friday.

The winning numbers were: nine, 17, 18, 28 and 43. The Mega Ball was nine, and the Megaplier was three.
