Thomas Naples knows exactly what he will do with the $750,000 he won playing Lucky Day Lotto.  “This prize is for my four children and eight grandchildren.  It’s all for them.”  The lucky Oak Lawn resident’s Quick Pick ticket matched all five numbers – 06 - 08 - 09 - 10 - 33 – to win a $750,000 jackpot prize in the Thursday, March 3, Lucky Day Lotto midday drawing.

Naples, 82, was at the grocery store with his daughter when he bought his Lucky Day Lotto ticket.  Once at home, he checked the winning numbers on the Illinois Lottery website.  When he saw that the numbers on his ticket matched, he froze.  “I asked my son-in-law to double check the ticket and when he confirmed that I won, we were both speechless.  Meanwhile, when my daughter heard the news she started screaming! We thought she was going to have a heart attack!”

The winning ticket was purchased at Jewel Food Store, 8801 Ridgeland Avenue in Oak Lawn.  The retailer received a bonus of $7,500, 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling a winning ticket.  Two winning tickets shared the March 3 $1.5 million jackpot prize.  The other $750,000 winning ticket, also a Quick Pick, was purchased at Ardmore Station Liquors, 332 South Ardmore Avenue in Villa Park.

In addition to the jackpot winner, more than 35,000 players won prizes ranging from $1 to $200 in this Lucky Day Lotto drawing. Lucky Day Lotto drawings are twice a day, seven days a week.  For more information about Powerball please visit
