CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio Lottery posted on their Facebook page that three Powerball players in Ohio won $1 million.
According to the Ohio Lottery, the million dollar winner was sold at the Speedway in the 300 block of Miamisburg Centerville Road in Centerville.
The Facebook post reads:
There are no jackpot winners in Ohio but three people will split the $1.6 billion jackpot.
Three tickets matched the winning numbers. Those tickets were sold in Tennessee, Florida, and a Los Angeles suburb.
The million-dollar winners were sold in Toledo, Cleveland, and Centerville. Each retailer will receive a $1000 sales bonus.
The Powerball has been growing since late November because no one had all the right numbers. With no winners the potential winnings kept growing until this Powerball became the world’s largest lottery drawing.
You had a one in 292.2 million shot at getting the perfect ticket to your riches and somewhere in Centerville someone or a group has found a way to beat the odds.
Powerball hyteria is taking over in the Miami Valley as people wonder who just became a millionaire.
Dave Sterling from Centerville told 2 NEWS, “I believe that in Troy a while back there was a half million dollar winner (about) a decade ago. Up here, I’m very surprised ’cause I live down the street. I would have loved to be the one that bought the ticket. Maybe I’ll have to buy here in the future instead of getting gas.”
Ohio law does not require a player or a group of players to reveal themselves. Ohio is one of six states that protects the identities of winners. That means we may never know who is the latest millionaire in the state.
