$97 million Powerball ticket sold at Ottawa County carryout

CURTICE, Ohio — A $97 million Powerball ticket was sold at a carryout in this Ottawa County town but the holder has yet to claim his or her prize.

The $97 million jackpot will be split with another winning ticket, sold in Montana.

Shirley Loofborow, 69, the owner of Shirley's Carryout in Curtice where the ticket was sold, was among the most excited to learn of the news.

Ms. Loofborow received a $48,500 bonus check from the Ohio Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

The holder of the ticket has 180 days to come forward and claim the prize. The winning numbers were 11, 30, 45, 47 and 48 with a Powerball of 10. The Power Play multiplier was 3.

This marks the second time since the game came to the state that the Ohio Lottery has sold a jackpot-winning Powerball ticket.

Ohio's first Powerball jackpot, sold at Hub Carryout in Sunbury, came on the June 2 drawing, Ohio's 14th draw since joining the game on April 16.

The estimated $97 million jackpot is an annuity option paid in 30 payments over 29 years (the first payment is immediate). The annual payments increase by 4% each year to keep up with the expected cost of living. The cash jackpot is estimated at $50.2 million; Ohio's portion of that is $25.1 million.

Powerball is drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Saturday night's jackpot starts at $20 million.
