The Third Time Is The Charm

NORTH CANTON Charles F. Wehner of Alliance has won Ohio Lottery games before, and this time it made him a millionaire. Wehner won $1,000,000 after he matched all five numbers drawn and said yes to the Megaplier in the May 15, 2012 Mega Millions’ drawing.

After mandatory federal and state taxes totaling 31 percent he receives $690,000.

Wehner chose the lucky numbers 10-11-12-14-24. The mega ball was 24. Wehner purchased the Mega Millions ticket from Korosy’s Korner, 299 W. Main Street in Alliance. Korosy’s Korner received a $1,000 bonus for selling a five of five Mega Millions ticket.

Those same numbers have proven to be lucky for Wehner. He played the numbers back on November 14, 2000 to win $100,000 in the Buckeye 5 game. Wehner is proof that lightening can strike in the same place more than once. In February 2007, he won $2,500 in the Pick 4 game.
