Brothers win Ohio Lottery jackpot after mom's advice

GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OH -- Here's $50,000 worth of proof that mom always knows best.

Christopher and Jay Burton both credit their mother, Betty, for helping them win a game in the Ohio Lottery. They say she told them to play specific numbers in the Pick 5 game.

Both brothers listened to mom's advice, and they both won $25,000!

After taxes, each brother will get $17,750. They plan to use most of the winnings on an investment property, but they say they will share some of the cash with their mom.

Lottery officials say the brothers are also planning to ask their mom for advice on what numbers to pick for tomorrow night's $301 million Powerball drawing.
