Melrose Park, IL – Check your pockets. Someone bought a $1.1 million winning Lucky Day Lotto ticket in Melrose Park.
The Quick Pick ticket was sold at Meijer, 950 Winston Plaza, and it matched all five numbers, 04 – 07 – 30 – 36 – 40, to win $1.1 million in the Jan. 22nd evening drawing, according to the Illinois Lottery.
The store will receive a bonus of $10,100, or 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.
The winner is urged to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until visiting a Lottery’s five Prize Centers in Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, Springfield or Fairview Heights.
Winners have one year from the drawing date to claim a prize. VFP
