A Shelby County resident is the area’s newest millionaire after hitting it big on an Illinois Lottery scratch-off ticket. Windsor resident Lisa Doss instantly won one million dollars on the 300-million dollar Cash Spectacular game.
Doss bought the ticket at EK Petro Mart in Windsor. She says she has hit two $1,000 prizes playing the game before. She opted to take her prize as a one-time payment and plans to invest the money.
EK Petro Mart received a bonus of one percent of the prize amount for selling the winning ticket. That one percent came to ten-thousand dollars for the store.
