FINDLAY, Ohio — Check your Mega Millions lottery tickets!
Although nobody hit the $116 million jackpot in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions lottery drawing for Aug. 23, there was a $1 million winner in Ohio.
Lottery officials say the winning auto-pick ticket worth $1 million was sold at Pak-A-Sak in Findlay, which is just about a two-hour drive west from Akron.
Here are the lucky numbers from Tuesday’s drawing: 3, 5, 47, 48, 67 with Mega Ball 7. The Findlay winner matched five numbers, only missing the jackpot by failing to match the Mega Ball.
Even if you aren’t the big $1 million winner, it’s still worth checking your tickets because Mega Millions lottery officials say there were multiple other prizes won throughout Ohio. These include:
- $1,000: Two winners
- $500: Five winners
- $400: Seven winners
