Welcome to Winner Wednesday!
It's been a busy couple of weeks watching the excitement grow around that record $1.33 billion Mega Millions jackpot.
Retailers and players alike were pumped to get in on the excitement, and while we didn't have the jackpot-winning ticket, the Mega Millions craze did create a lot of other winners here in the Buckeye State!
Ohio Lottery players shared in more than $2.6 million in prizes from the July 29 Mega Millions drawing. Eleven players won $10,000 prizes.
The Mega Millions drawing on July 26 was lucky for a couple of Ohio players and retailers.
Hirsch's Marathon in Berea sold a winning 5 of 5 ticket worth $1 million.
BellStore St. Clairsville #1080 in St. Clairsville sold a winning 5 of 5 ticket with the Megaplier for a $3 million prize!
