STRUTHERS, Ohio -

The search for the winner of a $1 million lottery ticket is over.

The Ohio Lottery Commission says a resident of Poland has come forward to claim the winning ticket that was sold for a drawing on March 2nd. 

According to the Lottery Commission, 62-year-old Elaine Galmish won $1,000,004 in the March 2 Powerball drawing, matching all five numbers, without the Powerball, setting her up for the drawing's $1-million prize.  

The winning numbers were:  01 19 25 27 68, Powerball: 21.

According to the commission, lottery players have a 1 in 11,688,053.52 chance of matching all five numbers. 

After mandatory federal and state taxes totaling 28 percent, she will receive $720,002.88.  

Galmish used the Ohio Lottery’s auto lotto feature to purchase her winning ticket at Struthers Beer Center, located at 850 Youngstown-Poland Rd. in Struthers.
 
According to the Lottery Commission, she missed the Powerball number by one digit – her Powerball number on the wager was 22. 

Had she been one number higher, Galmish would've taken home the $381 million jackpot.
