A lucky lottery player who stopped into a suburban Cincinnati liquor store has a Mega Millions ticket worth $196 million.

Lottery spokeswoman Marie Kilbane said Friday night that the ticket for the drawing was bought from Main Street Wine & Spirits in Amelia, a village of about 3,500 in southwest Ohio.

Store owners Mike and Barby Goldstein said the winning ticket holder had not yet come forward by Saturday evening.

"I'm dying to know who won," said Mike Goldstein, 32.

Lottery officials in Georgia say just one ticket won the jackpot. Another 17 players who matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball number will receive second place prizes of $250,000 each.

It's the first Mega Millions winning ticket to be sold in Ohio since Dec. 1, 2006, when a winning ticket was bought in Columbus.

The winning numbers for Friday night's drawing were 6, 11, 39, 46 and 47. The Mega Ball number was 26.
