|For Immediate Release||Contact: www.illinoislottery.com|
What game did you win and how much did you win?
St. Patrick’s Day Millionaire Raffle—$100,000
Where did you purchase the winning ticket?
I bought my ticket at Citgo located at 5200 W. Addison in Chicago.
How often do you play?
I usually play twice a week.
What is your favorite game?
I like Mega Millions but now I have to say the Millionaire Raffle.
How did you find out you won?
I didn’t remember to check my ticket until a few days after the drawing. A co-worker and I went to a retailer to check the ticket, and when I was told I won $100,000, I thought they were mistaken and maybe I really only won $1,000. When I finally realized I actually won $100,000, I came forward to claim my ticket immediately.
What do you plan to do with your winnings?
I plan to buy a new car and pay off a few bills.
