Powerball prizes have been sold across Illinois over the past several months, equating to $6,660,079 since the jackpot began its roll Sept. 19, 2020.
After the Mega Millions drawing last week, a player from Illinois won $1 million for the third time in just under two weeks, a release said. The ticket was purchased at Lively Liquor at 1170 E. Higgins Rd. in Elk Grove Village.
Illinois residents who would like to participate in the Lottery can do so by purchasing tickets online at IllinoisLottery.com or using the Illinois Lottery app.
“When visiting a retailer, the Illinois Lottery reminds players to practice safe social distancing and adhere to the store’s safety measures,” a release said.
The Illinois Lottery reminded that the Powerball is played on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with the Mega Millions played on Friday and Tuesday.
