Pool claims $250,000 Mega Millions prize

Second of four claimed from March 25 near-record drawing

CINCINNATI - A pool of 14 people have claimed the $250,000-winning ticket sold at Glenway Pony Keg in Cincinnati. The pool held one of four tickets sold in Ohio that matched all five numbers but not the mega ball, in a near record jackpot drawn Friday, March 25, that reached $319 million after accounting for all sales.

They used the Lottery’s auto lotto feature to choose their winning numbers.  The winners are:
Krista Curtin, Cincinnati
Sherry Steinriede, Cincinnati
Carver Ealy, Cincinnati   
Richard Haffey, Cleves
Carole Greene, Cincinnati    
Cathy McComas, Cleves
Linda Merwin, Cincinnati    
Barbara Hilbert, Hamilton
Julia Niermann, Cincinnati   
Susan Martini, Harrison
Tiffany Pouncy, Cincinnati    
Daniel Berssenbruegge, Maineville
Deborah Rahe, Cincinnati   
Joshua Proffitt, Hebron, KY

In splitting the $250,000 prize, each player will take how approximately $12,341 after mandatory federal and state tax withholdings. Glenway Pony Keg receives a $1,000 sales bonus. The other winning tickets of the 5-of-5 prize were sold at Circle K in Cuyahoga Falls, Chasers Drive Thru in Wooster and Village Carryout in Columbus.

Since 1974, the Ohio Lottery has raised more than $17 billion to support K-12 education across Ohio. The Ohio Lottery transferred $728.6 million to the Lottery Profits Education Fund in FY10.
