EUCLID, Ohio — Check your lottery tickets! There’s a new multimillionaire in Northeast Ohio just in time for the holidays. That's right! Somebody hit the $5.9 million jackpot in Monday's Classic Lotto drawing. 

Ohio Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold in the city of Euclid at the Convenient Food Mart in the 800 block of E. 222nd Street.

The winning numbers were: 8-13-18-26-33-39.

The ticket holder, who won by picking their own numbers, has not yet come forward to claim their prize but they have 180 days from when the drawing took place.

The odds of winning the Ohio Lottery's Classic Lotto game are one in 13,983,816, according to the game's site.

The Convenient Food Mart will receive a $1,000 bonus for making the winning sale. This is Ohio’s 23rd Classic Lotto jackpot win since the game began in 2007, lottery officials said in a press release.

Ohio Lottery officials said this marks the second jackpot prize that has hit in the Euclid community within the few days. A $155,000 Rolling Cash 5 ticket was sold at Discount Drug Mart in the 700 block of E. 200th Street on Friday, Nov. 20.

The previous Classic Lotto jackpot was hit earlier this year on July 29. That ticket, which is worth $2.5 million and sold at a Get-Go in Uniontown, remains unclaimed.

Late last year, somebody hit a $375 Mega Millions jackpot with the winning ticket sold at a Giant Eagle store in Mentor.
