Somebody in Oak Park is about to be $200,000 richer – that is if they claim the $200,000 Lucky Day Lotto ticket they bought at the 7-Eleven at 661 South Blvd. on July 12.
The ticket purchaser still has not claimed the prize for the ticket matching the numbers 2-11-25-26-45, according to a press release from the Illinois Lottery Commission.
The retailer also will receive a bonus prize of $2,000 for selling the ticket. The winner should sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until they claim the prize at one of the Illinois Lottery locations in Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, Springfield or Fairview Heights.
They have one year to claim the prize. More information is available at illinoislottery.com.
