Illinois LotteryIllinois Lottery: Single winner takes $7 million Illinois Lotto jackpot

A single winner has taken the $7 million jackpot from the latest drawing of the Illinois State Lottery's Lotto game.

The ticket sold in Loves Park was the only one to match all six winning numbers from Wednesday night's Lotto drawing.

The next Lotto drawing will be Saturday night, and will feature a grand prize of $2 million.

Wednesday night's drawing also produced 20 second-prize winners who matched five of the six winning numbers and will receive prizes of $1004 apiece. Another 1,048 players matched four of the six and will receive third prizes of $34.50 apiece.

The winning numbers from Wednesday night's drawing were: 8, 14, 22, 36, 44 and 52.

Illinois Lotto AFAIK also has a fourth prize ($3 for 3/6.) Why does the press release ignore most winners?

      Nice windfall.  Not too small and not too big. Perfect!
