Lottery Numbers Reflect Ohio State Score

CLEVELAND(AP) - Ohio State's magical 42-39 victory over Michigan also turned out to be lucky for players of the Ohio Lottery.

The numbers 4-2-3-9 were drawn in Saturday night's Pick 4 game with the lottery paying winnings of $2.19 million on wagers of $347,867.50.

"You know it happens," lottery spokeswoman Marie Kilbane said Sunday.

Bettors can play the game in a variety of ways. Someone who played $1 and picked that combination in order won $5,000. The odds of the numbers turning up in that combination were 10,000 to 1.

The game finished at 7:13 p.m. The drawing was at 7:29 p.m.

Kilbane said she does not know how much money was wagered after the game finished. But it's likely that most of the bets with those numbers came after the game, she said.
