Time for Winner Wednesday!

It's Winner Wednesday! We’ve got lots to celebrate with an anniversary of note and winner highlights to share. Last week, more than 3 million winners shared $59 million in prizes, both large and small.

This is a special week for the Ohio Lottery and Powerball,
with Ohio celebrating its 12th year of play in this special multi-state lotto game. The Ohio Lottery participated in its first Powerball drawing April 17, 2010. It’s been quite a ride since then. Prizes of $1 million or more (for matching 5-of-5 numbers without the Powerball) have been snagged 58 times by Ohio Lottery players since we raised the second-tier prize in 2012. We've also sold three jackpot prizes. In FY21 alone, players shared $58.6 million in prizes overall.

Draw games, scratch-offs, EZPLAY® Games and more, there are many games to choose from and enjoy. Here are a few winners from the past week:

Doug-hits-the-jackpot.JPGWe congratulate Doug of Chauncey. He won a $1-million annuity prize playing the Ohio Lottery's $20 scratch-off, $1,000,000 Cashword. He chose the top prize’s $500,000 cash option payment before taxes. He has plans for his winnings. He’d like to start a business and help his mom! Doug purchased the winning ticket at Cee Dee Handy Mart in Chauncey.

Congratulations all! Wishing all of our readers here, a safe, fun and happy week!
