CHICAGO RESIDENT CRUISES WITH $75,000 ILLINOIS LOTTERY WIN
June 20, 2016

“Now that I won a top prize of $75,000 on an Illinois Lottery Crossword ticket, my dream to go on a cruise will come true!” Lissete Martinez said when she presented her winning ticket at the Lottery Prize Center in Chicago.

Martinez, 37, is originally from Mexico and grew up in Chicago’s West Lawn neighborhood. She was at work when her husband brought her a coffee and a Crossword ticket during her lunch break. “He knows it’s my favorite game to play, I’m so happy he stopped by!”

Her plans for the windfall include paying bills and taking a cruise to the U.S. Virgin Islands with her husband.  Her advice to other lottery players is, “Play your favorite ticket like I did!” 

The $75,000 winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven, 4001 West 59th Street, in Chicago.  The retailer received a $750 bonus, or one percent of the prize amount, for selling a winning ticket.  Crossword is a $5 instant ticket with a top prize of $75,000.  Eight of the 14 top prizes have not yet been claimed.  For more information, please visit illinoislottery.com.
