HUNTLEY – A Huntley resident recently took home $325,000 after matching all five numbers in the state’s Lucky Day Lotto drawing.
Bill Reining said in an Illinois Lottery news release that he usually buys the Quick Pick ticket after his morning workout, but on April 26 he decided to go to Drendel’s Corner Mobil, 13280 S. Route 47, before his workout to buy the winning ticket.
He later checked the Lucky Day Lotto numbers online to find that all five of his numbers – 9, 19, 23, 33, 36 – netted him the $325,000 jackpot. He said he plans to invest the money, share it with his three children and travel to Boston for his son’s college graduation.
“If you win, sit back, take a deep breath, and invest your money so it works for you,” Reining said.
Jackpots for the Lucky Day Lotto start at $100,000. Drawings are seven days a week, with more than 35,000 winners every day, the news release stated.
