Million-dollar winning lottery ticket sold at Farmington grocery store

A Fairview, Illinois man is $1 million richer after a visit to a Farmington grocery store.

Kevin Weaver won the top prize with a $40 million Mega Bucks scratch-off ticket purchased at County Market at 1090 E. Fort St., Farmington. Located about 20 miles west of Peoria, Farmington has a population of just over 2,000.

“I scratched the ticket in my truck in the County Market parking lot, and was in complete shock when I saw I had won a million dollars,” Weaver said in a statement. “I immediately called my wife, Paula, to tell her the news. She didn’t believe me until I scanned the ticket on my lottery app to prove it to her.

Weaver plans to use part of the prize money for a delayed trip to Aruba with Paula. Several years ago, he intended to propose to her there.

“The trip was too expensive, so we never got to go,” he said. “Well, you better believe we’re definitely going now.”
