BETHALTO — A Bethalto store sold a $600,000 winning ticket for Sunday’s Lucky Day Lotto midday drawing.
The winning ticket was purchased at Farm Fresh, 310 W. Bethalto Blvd., and matched five numbers — 01 - 02 - 03 - 06 – 30 — to win $600,000 in the Sunday, May 24, midday drawing.
The Illinois Lottery urges the lucky winner to immediately sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until the winner visits one of the Lottery’s five Prize Centers in Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, Springfield and Fairview Heights. Winners have one year from the original drawing date to claim their prize.
Farm Fresh will receive a bonus of $6,000, 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling a winning ticket.
In addition to the jackpot winner, more than 18,000 Illinoisans won prizes ranging from $200 to $1 in this Lucky Day Lotto drawing. Lucky Day Lotto drawings are twice a day, seven days a week. For information, visit www.illinoislottery.com.
