$99m MegaMillions jackpot claimed by co-workers from Ohio
COLUMBUS, OHIO – A lucky group of co-workers in north-east Ohio will share last Friday’s $99 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot.
The Ohio Lottery announced that a group of 22 co-workers from a cabinet making company in Jefferson, midway between Cleveland and Youngstown.
Each will get about $2 million after state and federal taxes are taken from the total prize. It also depends on whether they choose to take the lump sum cash option or the annuity.
They bought the winning ticket at a Speedway in Jefferson, about 10 miles from the Pennsylvania border.
