A Fairborn man won a $1 million prize last week playing the Ohio Lottery’s Billion scratch-off game.

Johnny Salyers bought his winning $50 ticket at the Speedway store at 1171 N. Broad St. in Fairborn, the Ohio Lottery announced.

He beat odds of 1 in 235,636 to win the second-tier prize, which is an annuity paid as $50,000 a year for 20 years.
