    Default $196 million lottery ticket sold near Cincinnati

    CLEVELAND - A lucky lottery player who stopped into a suburban Cincinnati liquor store has a Mega Millions ticket worth $196 million.
    Lottery spokeswoman Marie Kilbane said Friday night that the ticket for the drawing was bought from Main Street Wine & Spirits in Amelia, a village of about 3,500 in southwest Ohio.
    Store owners Mike and Barby Goldstein said the winning ticket holder had not yet come forward by Saturday evening.

    "I'm dying to know who won," said Mike Goldstein, 32.
    Lottery officials in Georgia say just one ticket won the jackpot. Another 17 players who matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball number will receive second place prizes of $250,000 each.
    It's the first Mega Millions winning ticket to be sold in Ohio since Dec. 1, 2006, when a winning ticket was bought in Columbus.
    The winning numbers for Friday night's drawing were 6, 11, 39, 46 and 47. The Mega Ball number was 26.

    It's probably a retired or working auto worker or factor person, maybe mid 50's to 60's.

    I hope it's someone who really needs the money like someone whose house is in foreclosure or has medical bills to pay. Sometimes people win who already have a nice living, or have already won before. Didn't JLo's mother win the lottery a few years back? The irony of that is insane.

    Dammit - I am never going to win that thing! And I'm too good looking to win the Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes. Guess I'm just gonna have to keep working.

    Why didn't I buy a ticket?! I would've good with my money. Like help the animals by getting rid of Paris Hilton. Not kill her, but lock her in a big closet.
