ELYRIA, Ohio -- Someone in Northeast Ohio could be more than a half million dollars richer and not realize it.

A winning Ohio lottery ticket was bought last week, and no one has come forward yet to claim the big prize.

The Ten to Ten Beverage Store in Elyria sold winning Rolling Cash 5 ticket, worth $512,000.

"I thought somebody got really, really lucky. Wish it had been me," lottery player Jeffrey Washington said.

Store owner Andrew Bendik said this was the third big winner for the store in recent years.

"Last year we sold Rolling Cash 5 for $110,000, and then a couple years before that we sold a $100,000 scratch off," Bendik said.

The latest winning Rolling Cash 5 ticket was bought on Halloween. But it's more than a week later, and no one has claimed the jackpot.

"Oh, I think it is so exciting. I just wish I would have been here to buy one,” lottery player Judy Boggs said.

The winning numbers on Oct. 31 were 3, 13, 29, 33 and 39. And, according to the Ohio Lottery Commission, the person used the auto-pick to select the numbers.

"It's really exciting for all the customers. We just really want to know who the big winner is,” Bendik said.

Within the last month, there have been seven winning Rolling Cash 5 tickets sold in Northeast Ohio with the jackpot ranging from $100,000 to $512,000.

The person with the winning Rolling Cash 5 ticket has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the jackpot.
