Ohio lottery: 10 Mega Millions tickets worth $250K

Published:

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Lottery officials say 10 tickets sold in Ohio for the latest Mega Millions drawing are worth $250,000 each, though they fell short of winning the record-breaking $640 million jackpot.

The ten auto-pick tickets matched the five regular numbers but missed the Mega Ball number in Friday's drawing for the multistate game. Some of those tickets were sold at grocery stores in Englewood and Niles and at convenience stores in Berea, Boardman, Brunswick and Newark. The rest were bought at gas stations in Cleveland, Lewis Center and South Point and at a beer and wine shop in Chesterland.

Winning tickets for Friday's drawing were sold in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland. The winning numbers were: two, four, 23, 38 and 46. The Mega Ball was 23, and the Megaplier was 3.
