$4.75-million winning Lotto ticket from Thursday drawing sold in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, IL – If you bought a Lotto ticket in Springfield, you may want to check it right away!  A gas station in Springfield sold a $4.75 million winning Lotto ticket for Thursday’s drawing.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at Shell, 3300 E. Clear Lake Ave., and matched all six numbers – 12 - 18 - 29 - 30 - 31 - 52 -- to win a $4,750,000 prize in the Thursday, May 4, drawing. The retailer will receive a bonus of $47,500, or one percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket. 

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 Springfield, Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, or Fairview Heights. Winners have one year from the original drawing date to claim their prize.

 More than 72,000 players won prizes ranging from $1 to $2,359 in this Lotto drawing. Lotto drawings are held Monday, Thursday, and Saturday at 9:22 pm.  For more information, visit
