COLUMBUS – Affirmative action brought a winning response for a Gahanna resident. Randall L. Lucas said “yes” to the KICKER number printed on his 12-18-09 Mega Millions ticket, which resulted in an action: he won a $100,000 top prize in the game.
After mandatory federal and state taxes totaling 31 percent, Lucas will receive a check for $69,000.
Lucas purchased the winning ticket from Stoney’s Market. The winning KICKER number was 4-7-5-5-8-1. At 3517 Lockbourne Road in Columbus, Stoney’s Market receives a $1,000 agent bonus for selling a winning ticket.
