Ohio Powerball Numbers

The Ohio Lottery’s mission statement is “to offer entertaining games that maximize profits for K-12 public education,” and it has used billions of dollars of revenue to support schools over the years. One of the most notable benefits of playing Powerball in Ohio is that you don’t have to disclose your identity to the public if you win the jackpot, making it one of only several states where this is possible. View the Ohio Powerball numbers below.

Ohio Powerball Rules

You can play Powerball in Ohio in the same way as in any other state: just pick five main numbers between 1 and 69 and a Powerball between 1 and 26. There are, however, some state-specific rules that you should be aware of:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age to play.
  • You can enter up to 10 draws in advance.
  • A state tax of four percent will be taken on any winnings above $5,000, in addition to federal taxes.
  • Ticket sales are suspended at 10:00pm ET on draw days, reopening for the following draw shortly after the winning numbers have been confirmed.

See the How to Play page for more information about entering Powerball draws.

You can claim prizes of up to $599 by taking your ticket to any licensed lottery retailer.

For prizes of between $600 and $5,000, you must take your ticket to be validated at a retailer, where you will be given a Pay to Bearer ticket and a claim form to fill in. The retailer will then let you know where to find the nearest cashing location, which will either be a Peoples Bank or one of Ohio’s seven racinos. You must take the Pay to Bearer ticket, along with the completed claim form and a valid form of photo identification, to one of the cashing locations to be paid out. Note that some banks charge a fee for this service.

Alternatively, you can claim prizes of this value by mail but you must still obtain a Pay to Bearer receipt from a retailer. Once you have that, send it along with the winning ticket and a completed claim form to the address below. Prizes can take up to 30 days to process and the money will be issued to you via check.

You have 180 days from the date of the winning draw to claim a prize. Any money left unclaimed after this period will be transferred to the lottery’s education fund.

The Ohio Lottery states that it is not responsible for lost or stolen tickets. In the event that your ticket does go missing, contact the Ohio Lottery for advice, although please note that it is not under any obligation to pay out any prizes if a winning ticket cannot be produced.

Ohio is one of the few states that allows lottery winners to retain their anonymity, and two of the three jackpots won in the state have been claimed by anonymous players. When claiming a large prize from the Ohio Lottery, your name, image, or likeness will not be used for commercial purposes unless you give your written consent.

Revenue from the sale of lottery tickets in Ohio is used to support elementary, secondary, vocational, and special education in the state. The lottery has paid over $8 billion to support such causes over the last decade, with more than half of those proceeds coming from the sale of instant games. Powerball has generated around $400 million for education over that period.

Roughly 30 percent of the lottery’s revenue goes towards education, with a further 60 percent used to pay out prizes. The remaining 10 percent is split between operating expenses, game costs, and paying bonuses and commissions.

Aread of Spending Percentage of Revenue
Prizes 60%
Payments to Education 30%
Bonuses and Commissions 5%
Operating Expenses 3%
Game Costs 2%

The early days of Powerball in the Buckeye State were exciting, as the biggest jackpot in its history was won just two months after tickets went on sale in April 2010, when a single anonymous ticket holder landed $261 million on June 2nd 2010. The winning ticket was bought at the family-run Hub Carry Out & Deli in Sunbury, and the store’s owner Ralph Smith claimed that the winner was a regular patron, although he declined to comment further at the time.

The state’s second ever Powerball jackpot arrived just three weeks later, in the drawing on June 23rd. A group of 14 workers at a Chrysler paint shop in Detroit, Michigan, won one half of a $96 million jackpot. The winning ticket was bought from Shirley’s Carryout in Curtice, Ohio, by William Shanteau, a local resident and the only member of the group who lived in the state. The group chose the cash option of around $25 million, which gave them around $1.2 million each. It was not Shanteau’s first big win, either; he claimed a $100,000 prize around six years previously.

Since that lucky start to Powerball, only one more jackpot has been claimed in Ohio. That one arrived in July 2014, when another anonymous player matched all six numbers with a ticket bought at True North on State Street in Conneaut.

We have a Powerball winner! Where the $730M ticket was sold

Posted: Jan 21, 2021 / 03:55 AM EST / Updated: Jan 21, 2021 / 08:34 AM EST

*The story in the video player above was done before Wednesday’s winning Powerball drawing

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — There has been a jackpot winner in the $730 million Powerball, the first to get the top prize in months.

Thanks to math and bad luck, lottery players had another shot at a giant jackpot Wednesday night with a $730 million Powerball prize was on the line. The winning ticket was sold in Maryland, pushing the new jackpot to an estimated $20 million for the next drawing Saturday.

The Powerball jackpot was the fifth-largest ever, and it came only a day after nobody won the even-larger Mega Millions prize, which now stands at $970 million.

Giant jackpots: Mega Millions worth $850M; Powerball hits $730M

No jackpot winners for Powerball or Mega Millions, another chance to win this week

Winning numbers for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing were: 40-53-60-68-69 and a Powerball of 22.

It was the first time both lottery jackpots topped $700 million. The biggest prize was a $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot won by three people in 2016.

No one had won either of the jackpots since mid-September, allowing the prizes to grow steadily for months. Such a long stretch without a winner is rare but also reflects the incredibly small odds of winning — 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball and 1 in 302.5 million for Mega Millions.

Maryland lottery spokeswoman Carole Gentry said Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing saw $260 million in sales, resulting in 36% of all possible number combinations being covered.

The prizes listed are for winners who choose an annuity option, paid over 30 years. Most winners opt for cash prizes, which for Mega Millions would be $716.3 million and $546 million for Wednesday’s Powerball. After the Powerball win, the new jackpot has a $15 million cash value.

Those prizes also would be subject to federal taxes, and most states would take a cut as well.

Mega Millions and Powerball are both played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Powerball also is offered in Puerto Rico.

Friday night’s Mega Millions jackpot is estimated at $970 million.
