Big Winner for Winner Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

Today we're highlighting one of our big winners, Joshua from Fremont.

Joshua likes to play KENO, and now we're pretty sure he's an even bigger fan of the draw game after he won $500,000! 

He bought his half-million dollar winning ticket at Chud's. He purchased $20 of KENO plus the Booster to win his big prize.

Joshua was still letting the news settle in when he visited our regional office to claim, so his first order of business was to sit down with his wife for a drink.

He was already making plans to vacation, put money into his four children's college funds, and invest some. Good choices, Joshua!

Are you a big winner? Ask to get your photo with the big check when you make your claim! Or, share your win with us on social media using the hashtag #IWonTheOHLottery.
