$207 Mega Millions Jackpot Won by 14 People In Ohio
Fourteen people claimed their shares of the $207 million Mega Millions jackpot Wednesday with one man dreaming of his first new vehicle, another planning to start a scholarship in his late son's name and a woman thinking about retirement.
Fourteen employees of the city of Piqua were joined by one relative of a city worker as they finalized their claim at the Dayton regional office of the Ohio Lottery.
"We played and played and finally it came through," said Richard Donnelly, 58.
The winners chose the cash option. After tax withholdings, 14 winners will each receive a check for approximately $6.3 million. Donnelly bought two shares of the winning ticket and will receive a check for approximately $12.6 million.
