Ohio player wins $250K in Mega Millions lottery game

CLEVELAND (AP) — Someone who bought a ticket in Ohio has won a quarter of a million dollars in the latest Mega Millions drawing.

Meanwhile, the top prize in the multistate lottery game rolls over to an estimated $100 million for the next drawing on Friday. No ticket nationwide had all the numbers needed to take the $87 million jackpot up for grabs on Tuesday.

The Ohio Lottery says a ticket sold at Ayersville Carry Out in Defiance in northwest Ohio matched five numbers on Tuesday, without the Mega Ball. That’s good for a $250,000 prize.

The winning numbers were: seven, 21, 29, 35 and 49. The Mega Ball was 39, and the Megaplier was four.
