BRUNSWICK, Ohio (WJW) — A Brunswick woman is $500,000 richer, according to Ohio Lottery officials.

The Ohio Lottery posted that Jodi Smallwood won half of a million dollars on the scratch-off ticket, Cashword.

After state and federal taxes of 28%, Jodi will receive $360,000, according to lottery officials, who said she bought the ticket at a Cenco gas station in Brunswick.

Smallwood said she would have never visited that location if she hadn’t met her boyfriend who lives nearby, according to the Ohio Lottery.
