ONTARIO, Ohio– They say timing is everything. A Mansfield woman was definitely in the right place, at the right time, when she scored a big lottery win.
The Ohio Lottery says the woman won $500,000 after she bought two Break the Bank instant tickets.
She and her family went to buy a movie at the Drug Mart on Briggs Rd. in Ontario, Ohio, when she decided to buy the tickets.
She told the Ohio Lottery she did a double take after scratching the ticket. “Winning a $500,000 top prize is so unbelievable.”
She’ll receive $355,000 after taxes. The family is planning to get a bigger home.
Drug Mart will get a $5,000 bonus for selling the top prize-winning ticket.
