If you bought a Powerball ticket for Saturday’s drawing in Raymond, you need to check that ticket. Someone bought a one million dollar winning ticket from a grocery story in the small Montgomery County community.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at West End Food Mart and matched the five numbers 20 - 24 - 26 - 35 – 49, but not the Powerball number 19 -- to win a $1,000,000 prize in Saturday's drawing. The retailer will receive a bonus of $10,000, or one percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket. No one won Saturday’s Powerball drawing, and Wednesday’s jackpot currently stands at 430 million dollars.
The Illinois Lottery urges the lucky winner to immediately sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until they visit one of the Lottery’s five Prize Centers in Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, Springfield or Fairview Heights. Winners have one year from the original drawing date to claim their prize.
