TROY, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman has claimed a prize of $1 million following the near-record Mega Millions drawing earlier this month.
The Ohio Lottery says Patricia Edwards of Troy matched all five white balls in the Dec. 17 drawing. Had she matched the Megaball as well, the 54-year-old would have won part of the $648 million jackpot.
Lottery officials say she made her claim on Dec. 23.Her $1-million prize was one of 11 sold for the drawing, and the only one in Ohio.
Edwards bought her ticket at a Speedway in Troy, which gets a $1,000 sales bonus.
The winning numbers for the drawing were eight, 14, 17, 20 and 39, with a Mega Ball of seven.
