Mega Millions winning lottery ticket sold at Medina BP

MEDINA — A winning lottery ticket worth $250,000 with the numbers 1, 16, 18, 25 and 27 was sold in Medina.

A BP gas station at 1050 N. Court St. sold the Mega Millions ticket, which matched Friday’s five regular numbers but missed the Mega Ball — 3. The Megaplier was 4.

No one has claimed the prize yet, said Danielle Frizzi-Babb, an Ohio Lottery spokeswoman.

“All games have 180 days to claim,” Frizzi-Babb said. “They have a while to claim it, so they don’t have to walk in tomorrow.”

After taxes and a $1,000 selling bonus for the store are deducted, the winner will take home $171,810.

A local manager for the gas station could not be reached for comment Monday. An employee declined to comment.

The winner must present the ticket and a photo ID at the lottery regional office in Cleveland.

Four other winning tickets worth $250,000 or less have been sold in the county since 2004, Frizzi-Babb said.

Nationwide, no one had the winning number for the jackpot in the multistate game. The jackpot rises to about $94 million for today’s drawing.
