CHICAGO, IL — If you bought a Lucky Day Lotto ticket in Westchester or Sterling, you may want to check it right away! A liquor store in Westchester and a gas station in Sterling each sold winning Lucky Day Lotto tickets in the Wednesday, January 9, midday drawing. The two lucky winners will split the $250,000 jackpot, resulting in a $125,000 prize for each.

The winning Lucky Day Lotto tickets were purchased at JD Food and Liquor, 10147 W. Roosevelt Road, in Westchester, and Shell, 2404 E. Lincolnway, in Sterling. Both tickets matched all five numbers – 23 - 25 - 35 - 39 - 43 – to win the jackpot.
