Crystal Lake gas station sells winning lottery ticket worth $450,000

CRYSTAL LAKE – A Lucky Day Lotto ticket worth $450,000 was bought at a Crystal Lake gas station.

The unclaimed ticket matched all five of Friday’s evening winning Lucky Day Lotto numbers of 3-4-9-16-28, according to a news release from Illinois Lottery.

The jackpot winning ticket came from the BP gas station, 7615 Route 14, according to the release. The business will receive a $4,500 bonus for selling the ticket.

While winners have one year from the original drawing date to claim their prize, the Illinois Lottery urges the winner to immediately sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until it’s turned in, according to the release.

More than 22,000 players also won prizes ranging from $1 to $200 in the same drawing, according to the release. The Lucky Day Lotto drawings take place twice a day. For information, visit illinoislottery.com.
