Celebrate good times, come on! We’ll be celebrating the July 4 holiday soon, and some Lottery players will get a head start on celebrating after winning. It’s Winner Wednesday and time to celebrate that halfway mark of the week: these Lottery players got a bonus. They won!
It was a birthday celebration that was late, but it turned out to be great! Three friends who live on the same street and have been playing together for three years will share a $100,000 prize on the $500,000 Money Club instant. Julia Wauligman, Antoinette Ebert and Valerie Rinear, all of Cincinnati, waited to celebrate Julia’s June 3 birthday because someone in the group was not in town. Over the weekend, they bought the winning ticket from Delhi Liquor in Cincinnati. The trio splits $71,000 after mandatory federal and state taxes totaling 29 percent. Julia, the group spokesperson, says she will buy a car, Toni will use her windfall on her house and she doesn’t know how Valerie will spend hers.
Shirley Simon of Fairview Park won $17,359 on Quick Spot.
Cindy Cale of Scio won $50,000 on $500,000,000 Spectacular.
