Eight Powerball Tickets Sold in Illinois Worth $50,000 or More: Locations Revealed

Multiple Illinois Residents Win Big in Wednesday’s Powerball Drawing!

Exciting news from the Illinois Lottery reveals that eight fortunate players from the state have struck it rich in the recent Powerball drawing. One player, in particular, is now a millionaire after purchasing a $1 million winning ticket at Williams Liquor in Elmhurst, located at 925 S. York Rd.

Another lucky iLotto participant managed to match four numbers and the Powerball, along with a Power Play, pocketing a generous prize of $100,000. Additionally, six more Illinois Powerball players matched four numbers and the Powerball, securing a sizable reward of $50,000 each.

Notably, two of the winning tickets were purchased online via the Illinois Lottery Website, while the rest were bought at different physical locations: Love’s Travel Stop at 4628 S. Main St. in Rockford, Thornton’s Gas & Food at 2201 N. Green Bay Rd. in Waukegan, Casey’s General Store at 520 W. Peru St. in Princeton, and Shell Gas Station at 1002 Cameron Dr. in Durand.

The luck didn’t stop there, as 17 other states also celebrated $1 million winners in the same Powerball drawing, including Indiana and Wisconsin.

Furthermore, the jaw-dropping grand prize of $1.08 billion went to a single lucky ticket holder in Los Angeles, who is now a mega-millionaire!

According to Powerball, the jackpot winner has the option to choose between receiving the total jackpot amount paid out in yearly installments or a one-time lump sum of $558.1 million before taxes.

The game’s incredibly low odds of 1 in 292.2 million have been deliberately set to create substantial prize amounts that attract more players. The highest recorded Powerball jackpot to date reached an astonishing $2.04 billion in November.

After the last Powerball jackpot win on April 19, where a fortunate individual scooped nearly $253 million, no other player had managed to claim the grand prize. Subsequently, there have been no jackpot winners.

For the upcoming Powerball drawing, a fresh jackpot of $20 million awaits the participants, scheduled for Saturday at 9:59 p.m. CT. On the other hand, the Mega Millions drawing, offering an impressive $720 million jackpot, is set to take place on Friday at 10 p.m. CT.
