A western Ohio mayor says a group of city employees who pooled their money bought the single winning ticket worth $207 million in the latest drawing of the multistate Mega Millions lottery. The only ticket to match all the winning numbers from Friday night's drawing was sold at a Kroger supermarket in Piqua (PIHK'-wuh).

Mayor Thomas Hudson says the winners are a dozen city employees. But he has declined to name them.

The winning numbers from Friday night's drawing were: 10, 16, 19, 27 and 48. The Mega Ball number was 25.

Twenty-three players won the second prize of $250,000. Another 113 players won the third prize of $10,000.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be on Tuesday night with a jackpot of $12 million.
