Baltimore Food & Liquor located at 13322-24 S. Baltimore in Chicago 

How often do you play? 

I play all the time and I participate in a Mega Millions pool at work. 

How did you find out you won? 

On St. Patrick’s Day, my girlfriend and I were at a bar watching the Blackhawks game when we saw the winning raffle numbers. I didn’t have my tickets with me, but when I saw the numbers I had a feeling I won. I ended up checking my tickets a few days later and I couldn’t believe that I had just won $1 million. 

What do you plan to do with the winnings? 

I plan to speak with a financial advisor and start a nest egg for retirement.
