$200 Million Mega Millions Jackpot Won in Ohio
While many consider Friday 13th to be an unlucky date for one person in Ohio it turned out to be hugely lucky as they won a massive $200 million jackpot from Friday’s Mega Millions draw.
The ticket was purchased at Blendon Drive-Thru in Westerville, about 16 miles outside of Columbus. Its cash value is a reported $120 million but the identity of the winner is not yet known. The drive-thru is also a winner as it will receive a $100,000 agent sales bonus.
This was the third time this year that the Mega Millions jackpot had reached $200 million. Furthermore, this is the third time in the last five years that a Mega Millions jackpot has been won on Friday 13th. The jackpot for tonight’s draw has been reset to $15 million with tickets costing $1 each.
