Winning $1 million Powerball ticket sold out in Chicago, lottery officials say – NBC Chicago

A winning $1 million Powerball ticket was sold this week at a retailer in Chicago, the Illinois Lottery announced.

The lucky winner has apparently matched all five numbers – 4-13-35-61-69 – to win a million dollar prize in Wednesday night’s draw.

The winning ticket was purchased as UnCorck It, located at 393 East Illinois St. in Chicago.

“It’s so cool and very exciting!” Pete Stellas, owner of UnCork It, said in a statement. “We’ve been selling Illinois lottery tickets since they first became available in 1974. I can’t wait to call my brother and tell him we sold a million dollar winning Powerball ticket here.”

The store, open since 1928, is a third-generation family business, according to the Lottery.

“We are open 365 days a year, even on public holidays. Our employees, including Adrian Dragoi who sold the winning ticket, have worked for our local business for decades,” said Stellas. “We’ve always talked about selling a winning jackpot lottery ticket, and I’m so glad it happened.”

The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket, which Stellas said it plans to use to improve its business.

The winner has yet to come forward, but the lottery has urged anyone with a winning ticket to write their name on the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until they are ready to claim their prize . They have one year from the date of the draw to claim it.

So far this year, Illinois has seen seven Powerball players win $1 million. In Wednesday’s draw, the lottery announced that more than 20,000 tickets had been sold.

The next Powerball draw is scheduled for Saturday at 9:59 p.m., with a jackpot of $420 million.
