A Bolingbrook woman won $500,000 in the Lucky Day Lotto Nov. 2 with a ticket she purchased in Bolingbrook, according to the Illinois Lottery.
Lissette Quinones matched all five numbers – 01 - 06 – 16 – 33 – 38 – in the drawing.
“We are so blessed, and we always said that if we ever won a big prize we would help a lot of people," Quinones said. "We’re definitely going to stick to our plan.”
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven, 398 South Schmidt Road in Bolingbrook. “I always play Quick Picks, I feel like they’re lucky,” Quinones said.
“I checked my ticket over and over and I kept asking the clerk if I really did win. Then I got in my car and screamed and cried. I feel so lucky. I’m going to tell everyone that people really do win the lottery – people like me!”
The store will receive a $5,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
Plans for the winnings also include investing for retirement and traveling to Florida to visit her newest granddaughter, born just last month. “We’re going to take some time to make more plans, but we need to let this sink in!" Quinones said.
