Mega Millions

The winner of the biggest lottery jackpot won in Ohio has claimed the $270 million prize anonymously by forming a trust.

Toledo attorney Mark Mockensturm, a trustee for the M & H Blind Trust, made the claim Friday at the Ohio Lottery's headquarters on behalf of the winner of the Feb. 28 Mega Millions jackpot.

The winner chose to receive the prize in a lump sum and, after taxes, will get a check for $113.5 million.

The ticket was sold in Lyons, a farming village of about 600 people two miles from the Michigan state line and 30 miles west of Toledo.

Lottery officials said this was the seventh Mega Millions winner in Ohio, and the third biggest jackpot since the multistate game was renamed in 2002. It is played in 12 states.
