Illinois LotteryIllinois Lottery: $20 million Illinois Lotto ticket sold at convenience store

Someone is much richer this week after buying a winning Illinois Lottery ticket — and hopefully they know it.

A grand-prize Lotto ticket worth $20 million was sold Saturday at a downtown Chicago convenience store, with the ticket unclaimed as of Sunday night, according to an Illinois Lottery spokesman.

"It looks like there is one grand-prize winner," said Courtney Hill, noting that the ticket that matched the number sequence — 11-18-29-40-49-50 — was sold in the White Hen at 600 N. McClurg Ct.

The winner has up to one year to claim the prize by presenting the original ticket at a lottery regional office.

Congratulations to the winner, and I am sure he or she is surprised!  His or her 'ship' finally arrived, and I hope he or she is ready to board!

See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

    Illinois Lotto is the best pick-6 in the country, and this is just one reason why.

      Based on all the Illinois winners that failed to show up, winning in Illinois is easier then finding someone to claim the ticket.

      Cheers

      I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice

        lost tickets?  illegals?  family feud and someone thought it'd be cute to tear up the ticket?  being picked up for parole violations prevented turning in?  expired because of notorious chicago weather?

          Far better than NY Lotto. When is Florida Lotto increasing its payouts again?

            Another White Hen Pantry winner, there's something about those stores, seem to sell an inordinate amount of winners.
