CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Talk about getting rich fast.

Three winning tickets were sold for last night's $1.5 billion dollar Powerball jackpot. Those winners were sold in California, Tennessee and Florida. 

Three $1 million tickets were sold in Ohio: Cleveland, Centerville and Toledo.

Local players are focused on the winning Powerball ticket sold here in Cleveland.

"One of the cleaning ladies around here she came and told me Gary I think you sold the million dollar ticket from your store and I wasn't believing her until I found out from the lottery," said Gary Patel, owner of the Erieview Towers Newsstand.

Lottery officials visited Thursday morning and delivered winner signs.

The regulars popped in to the small family-owned business to congratulate the owner.

"I'm happy for you Gary. That means bottles for everybody," said one woman.

Many also wanted to see if they were winners.  

"Well, I got $12 in my office pool, office pool we have $12," said one disappointed man.

"There was a moment this morning I had the hope, just a moment though," said Dave Denatale, a regular customer.

Patel doesn't know who the winner is but says this will be good for business. It's the largest win for his store.

"It is really exciting, I wish I could be that lucky but we'll see," said first time Powerball player Mara Caputo.

And one woman says, she's now even more determined to win.

"I'm more likely to win now because the whole nation is not out buying tickets," said Michelle Hall.
