A person who bought a $261.6 million Powerball lottery ticket in Ohio has claimed the prize, but the winner’s identity has not been revealed.

The Ohio Lottery says the holder of the sole winning ticket in the June 2 drawing claimed the winnings Tuesday and chose to take a lump-sum cash payment of about $134.9 million.

Lottery officials say Columbus attorney George Hoffman made the claim on behalf of the winner.
