CLEVELAND (AP) — Lottery officials say three tickets sold in Ohio won $1 million apiece in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, though none matched all the numbers for the unprecedented $1.6 billion jackpot.

The Ohio Lottery says the state’s million-dollar tickets were sold at a Speedway in Centerville, at Erieview Towers News in Cleveland and at Broadway Food Center in Toledo. Those winners have six months to claim their prizes.

Winning tickets for the much larger jackpot were sold in California, Florida and Tennessee. The winning numbers were four, eight, 19, 27 and 34, and the Powerball was 10.

The estimated jackpot amounts had risen steadily since Nov. 4, when it was reset at $40 million.
