Ohio is celebrating its 212th birthday with special events at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
Lottery sales are down this year, and that came up at a meeting of a panel of lawmakers when lottery officials asked for money to renew the contract with the company hired to operate the lottery.
Lottery officials say 10 tickets sold in Ohio for the latest Mega Millions drawing are worth $250,000 each, though they fell short of winning the record-breaking $640 million jackpot.
The Mega Millions Jackpot is expected to top $540 million tonight. If you won, what would you do with the money?
