Ohio has a winner! $200 million lottery ticket sold

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio has a winner! A lottery spokeswoman says a player used automatic lotto in selecting what turned out to be the winning $200 million lineup in Friday’s Mega Millions draw.

Spokeswoman Sandra Neal says the ticket is worth $120 million and was purchased at Blendon Drive Thru in Westerville, about 16 miles north of Columbus. In announcing the win, she says she didn’t yet know the identity of the lucky person.

The drive-thru also was a winner, though, receiving a $100,000 agent sales bonus.

The winning numbers were 17-18-31-35-59. The mega ball number was 9.

It was the third time this year the Mega Millions jackpot reached $200 million.

Previously, a Mega Millions jackpot of $106 million was shared among five friends Sept. 11 in New York.
