Jay says his mother, Betty Burton, told him to play specific numbers, so he gave them to his brother, Chris. After taxes are taken out, they will each receive $17,750.

Jay tells the Ohio Lottery he is going to get his mom something with the winnings. He is also considering asking his mom for numbers to play in Wednesday's (Sept. 30) $301 million Powerball drawing.
