7-23-05 - Somebody in Ohio could be doing an awful lot of celebrating right now and with good reason. One ticket has matched all six winning numbers drawn last night in the Mega Millions lottery game, and that ticket is worth $170 million, before taxes.
Thirteen other players came very close, matching five of the six
winning numbers. Each of those tickets is worth a quarter million dollars. They were sold in Massachusetts, Ohio, New York, Georgia and New Jersey.
The winning numbers were: seven, 18, 27, 35, 54; the Mega Ball
number was 34.
