A fortunate customer at Speedway #9190 in Mansfield has claimed a $20,000 top prize in the Ohio Lottery’s $2 Cash Explosion Cashword scratch-off game. This win against the odds spotlights both the thrill of lottery games and the impact of lottery earnings on educational funding in the state.

Beating the Odds

The lucky winner managed to overcome formidable odds of 1 in 400,000 to secure the $20,000 prize. As of March 8, there were still two top prizes up for grabs, along with numerous other valuable prizes, keeping the anticipation high among participants. The winning ticket was purchased at the Speedway location at 1394 Ashland Road in Mansfield.

A Win for Education

The Ohio Lottery’s contributions extend far beyond creating moments of fortune and excitement for its players. Since its inception in 1974, the Ohio Lottery has contributed more than $31 billion to education, significantly benefiting Ohio’s students and schools. These contributions are directed towards primary, secondary, vocational, and special education programs, as determined by the General Assembly.

In the Fiscal Year 2022 alone, the Ohio Lottery transferred $1.405 billion to the Education Enhancement Fund, showcasing its substantial role in supporting educational initiatives throughout the state. This commitment to education underscores the broader importance of the Ohio Lottery beyond the thrill of winning, emphasizing its role in enriching the lives of Ohioans.

A Legacy of Winning

The Ohio Lottery has a long history of producing big winners, with the largest jackpot in its history being a $375 million Mega Millions prize claimed in 2019. These significant wins not only transform the lives of the individuals who claim them but also contribute to a greater cause by supporting education throughout Ohio.
