A lottery ticket winning $300,000 was purchased in Effingham. The Illinois State Lottery website confirms that the ticket was purchased at the Jack Flash gas station at 1200 North Keller Drive.
The winning ticket matched all five numbers for Wednesday’s Lucky Day Lotto midday draw. The winning numbers were 1, 5, 9, 17, and 19.
The winner has not yet come forward. They have one year from the date of the drawing to cash in their ticket.
Because of the amount of the winnings, the retailer will receive a bonus of $3,000, or one percent of the prize amount.
