Winning Big with Pick 5


ATHENS – A Chillicothe resident is proof that you can win big on the Ohio Lottery’s new Pick 5 game. Monty L. Hartley won $226,250 after hitting the Pick 5 game five times in the September 20 evening draw.

“It can be hit and you can hit it straight,” Hartley said. “It’s luck of the draw.” Hartley says he’s been playing lottery ever since it began but he’s never hit this big. He plays Pick 3 and Pick 4 and switched to Pick 5.

After mandatory federal and state taxes totaling 29 percent, Hartley receives $160,637.
