CLEVELAND (AP) - For the second time this month an Ohio ticket matched all the numbers in the Powerball lottery, but this time the winner will have to share the jackpot.
The Ohio Lottery said Thursday that a ticket sold in Ohio was one of two that will split Wednesday night's $96.9 million grand prize. The other was sold in Montana.
The lottery says Shirley's Carryout in Curtice, near Toledo, will receive a check for $48,500 for selling the winning Ohio ticket.
Wednesday's numbers were 11, 30, 45, 47 and 48, with 10 as the Powerball number. The Power Play multiplier was 3.
A sole winning ticket sold in Ohio was good for the $261.6 million Powerball jackpot in the June 2 drawing. The state first joined the multistate lottery game in mid-April.
