$5.9 million Classic Lotto jackpot ticket sold in Euclid Monday night

EUCLID, Ohio — Someone is waking up a whole lot richer after a Convenient Food Mart in Euclid sold a ticket that won the $5.9 million jackpot in Monday night’s Classic Lotto drawing.

The Convenient Food Mart, located at 811 East 222nd Street, sold the jackpot-winning ticket. It’s the second jackpot prize sold within the week in Euclid.

On Friday, Nov. 20, a ticket that won a $155,000 Rolling Cash 5 jackpot prize was sold at Discount Drug Mart, located at 725 East 200th Street.

The winning numbers for last night’s Classic Lotto were 8-13-18-26-33-39. The ticket holder, who chose their own numbers, has not yet come forward to claim the prize.

The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize.

The Convenient Food Mart, owned by Minaxi Patel, will receive a $1,000 sales bonus.

The last Classic Lotto jackpot on July 29, worth $3.5 million and sold by a Get Go in Uniontown, remains unclaimed.

10 city workers win $5.9 million Classic Lotto jackpot after 16 years of playing the same numbers

A group of 10 co-workers in Euclid won the Classic Lotto.

EUCLID, Ohio — After 16 years of playing the same numbers, 10 public employees last month won the $5.9 million Classic Lotto jackpot.

The group, which calls themselves the Lucky Ten and did not want to disclose what Northeast Ohio city they work for, visited the Ohio Lottery offices in Cleveland to claim the prize and chose the cash option of $2.9 million, according to a news release from the lottery. After state and federal taxes totaling 28 percent, each member of the group will receive $212,400.

One group member said they play Powerball, Mega Millions and Classic Lotto, which they bought at Convenient Food Mart, 811 E. 222 Street in Euclid.

“I called group together to tell them, and I wanted to see their facial expressions. They thought I was lying!” he said.

When the pool started sixteen years ago, they purchased an auto pick ticket and have stuck with the numbers ever since: 8-13-18-26-33-39. They will continue to play those numbers.

“A few months ago, we won for $2,000. We were just building up to the big one,” he said. “We’re hoping for Mega Millions next.”
