Albert "AJ" Polosky II of North Ridgeville, accompanied by his wife, came to the Ohio Lottery's Lorain regional office Friday to claim the $250,000 Mega Millions prize he won in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.
AJ says that the win still seems surreal.
He purchased his ticket from Circle K located at 36071 Chester Road in Avon. Before he knew he was the winner, he says he almost threw away the ticket. He plans to invest the winnings.
AJ is one of more than 300 Ohio Lottery players who have won the game's $250,000 prize since June of 2005. AJ used the auto lotto feature to make his Mega Millions purchase.
The current Mega Millions jackpot is $44 million. The drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. Friday. For more information on the Ohio Lottery, please visit www.ohiolottery.com.
