COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two lucky ticket holders are $1 million richer after they won a Mega Millions prize Tuesday night.

The winning tickets were purchased at The Party Pak, located in Upper Sandusky, and the Corner Carry Out in Marysville. Both ticket holders are the first to win the million-dollar Mega Millions this year.  

According to a release from the Ohio Lottery, no one has yet come forward to claim their prize. The winners have 180 days from the draw date to make their claim.

Each of the retailers that sold the winning ticket will receive a $1,000 sales bonus. Ohio has had 51 winners of the second-tier prize at $1 million or more since 2013. 

The ticket holders matched all five numbers but did not match the Mega Ball, to win. The winning numbers were 7, 13, 14, 15, 18 and Mega Ball 9. The Megaplier was 3x.

There have been 25 drawings over three months since the last time a player matched all six numbers and claimed the jackpot. 

The Mega Millions prize has now grown again to an estimated $1.35 billion after there was no winner of the lottery’s latest giant jackpot.

The new jackpot drawing on Friday night will be another milestone in the game, Mega Millions said in a statement early Wednesday.

“Now at $1.35 billion, the Mega Millions jackpot is moving up and making history as the second highest Mega Millions jackpot ever," Pat McDonald, Ohio lottery director and lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium, said in the statement.
