Woodstock, IL—June 7, 2013 — “I felt lucky the day I bought my ticket,” Purushotam Kahlon said after winning a $100,000 Lucky Day Lotto jackpot prize. Kahlon’s Quick Pick ticket matched all five winning numbers - 12 - 13 - 18 - 20 - 29 - in the May 22 drawing.
The Woodstock resident is married with two sons. He may put his winnings toward the purchase of a house. When asked if he has any advice for other Lottery players, Kahlon said “if you feel lucky you should buy a ticket.”
