$1M Powerball ticket sold in Lake Villa

Lake Villa, IL —  A Lake Villa gas station sold a winning Powerball ticket for last night’s drawing, meaning someone in the area is going to be $1 million richer.

The winner, who has yet to come forward, purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket at Lake Villa Citgo, 400 East Grand Avenue, and matched the first five numbers – 05 - 27 - 36 - 38 – 41 – (12) - in the Wednesday February 6 drawing.

This marks the 20th $1million Powerball winner in Illinois since last February. The Lake Villa Citgo will receive a $10,000 bonus, 1 percent of the jackpot amount, for selling a winning ticket.

The Powerball drawing takes place Wednesday and Saturday nights at 9:59 p.m.  The estimated jackpot for this Saturday is $40 million. For more information, please visit
