The Ohio Lottery randomly selected the names on Monday, then officials checked to make sure the winners of the $1 million prize and full-ride scholarship were eligible.
The lottery said that this week, 3,362,203 Ohioans tried for the $1 million prize, while 143,604 teens (those 12-17) entered to win the college scholarship, numbers both up from last week.
There are two drawings left: June 14 and June 21. The winners will be announced on the following Wednesdays.
Ohio’s vaccine lottery is an opt-in program. You can register online or by calling 1-833-4-ODH.
