Macomb, IL— June 25, 2014 — When Macomb resident Joan Lundgren won $100,000 on a $100 Million Money Mania Illinois Lottery ticket, she instantly knew what she would do with some of her winnings. “When my husband was alive, we drove a black Lincoln.

She was in her car outside the store when she used a quarter to scratch her ticket and instantly won $100,000. “I was so happy!”
The lifetime resident of Macomb has five children, nine grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Her plans for the windfall also include sharing with family.
Casey’s General Store will receive a $1,000 bonus, 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling a winning ticket. $100 Million Money Mania is a $20 instant ticket featuring over $100,000,000 in prizes and a top prize of $4,000,000. For more information, please visit www.illinoislottery.com.
