$850,000 Lucky Day lotto ticket sold at Waukegan gas station – NBC Chicago
It may not have been the $754.6 million Powerball jackpot, but $850,000 is no small feat.
According to Illinois lottery officials, an $850,000 Lucky Day Lotto ticket was sold over the weekend at a gas station in Waukegan.
The winning ticket was purchased at Thornton’s in Waukegan, located at 3233 Grand Ave. Officials said the ticket matched the five numbers – 17, 20, 22, 24 and 35 – in Sunday night’s Lucky Day Lotto draw to win the grand prize of $850,000.
But the ticket holder is not the only winner. The Thornton gas station that sold the ticket will receive a bonus of one percent of the value of the winning prize, according to the Illinois Lottery. In this case, it amounts to $8,500.
Powerball Monday also saw a winner, a single jackpot ticket totaling $754.6 million sold in Washington State.
Lucky Day Lotto is played twice a day, seven days a week, and the next $20 million Powerball draw is scheduled for Wednesday.
