"At first I couldn’t believe it and I didn’t want to get too excited in case it wasn’t real,” Debbie Howard said when she presented her winning $500 A Week For Life instant ticket at the Illinois Lottery Prize Center in Fairview Heights.  “Now it’s starting to sink in!”

Howard’s winning $500 A Week For Life ticket was a gift from her father.  “My dad loves the instant lottery tickets and we always buy them for him on special occasions, but this time he gave one to me!”  Howard has lived in Herrin all her life and is married with two high school age children.  She plans to use her winnings to make home improvements and pay for her kids to go to college.

The winning ticket was purchased at Red Top Liquor, 120 East Cherry Street in Herrin.  $500 A Week For Life is a $1 instant ticket offering top prizes of $500 a week for life.  For more information, please visit
