A ticket sold at Lottery Express, a little yellow kiosk on South Byrne Road in South Toledo, hit it big on Wednesday, landing an $8.5 million jackpot in Saturday’s Classic Lotto drawing.
The winner has yet to come forward and has 180 days to cash in, Ohio Lottery spokesman Marie Kilbane said. The winner used autopick, she said, to select the winning numbers: 6, 9, 10, 12, 22, 42.
“We encourage the winner to take their time and think about what they’d like to do,” Ms. Kilbane said.
The winner can choose to have the full prize paid out in annuity over 30 years or opt for a $4.25 million lump sum, Ms. Kilbane said. In both cases, prizes are subject to federal, state, and local taxes.
