However, even after the announcement of the winning number, no winner had come forward to claim his US$ 5.9 Million. It was told the ticket holder had himself or herself selected the numbers.
There could be many reason for not showing up, told lotto’s official. He also told that though they know that the ticket was purchased by someone but unfortunately, the ticket was not registered. Only if the ticket had been registered, they themselves had established contact with the lucky winner and given him the news.
As per the rules of the lotto, a winner has approximately 6 months to claim his prize money. In case someone fails to claim the prize money then such a person loses his entitlement over the prize money. However, still no one had showed up and the jackpot is waiting for its winner.
It was told at lotto’s official website that this Monday’s jackpot’s winning odds were one out of 14 million approximately. Since the winning ticket was sold by an authorized retailer of lotto, therefore the seller too will get US$1k prize.
This is the 37th jackpot win in Ohio’s lottery which started way back in the year 2007.
Earlier a prize money of US$ 155,000 was also won by a person residing in Euclid, told lotto’s official.
