CHICAGO, Sept. 27, 2023 – An Illinois Lottery retailer in the quaint town of Savoy is buzzing with excitement after selling a winning scratch-off ticket worth a cool $5 million.

The winning ticket, Million $$ Match, was sold at Schnuck’s supermarket, located at 1301 Savoy Plaza Center in Savoy, Ill.

One lucky scratcher turned a $30 play into a $5 million payday - scoring the game’s jackpot prize.

This is also a big win for the retailer that sold the winning ticket, as the store will receive a cash selling bonus of one percent of the prize amount. For Schnuck’s in Savoy, that means a bonus of $50,000.

So far this month, over 4 million winning Instant Tickets have been sold in Illinois, netting lottery players nearly $102 million in prizes.

You could be next! The Illinois Lottery currently offers more than 50 different Instant Ticket games at over 7,000 retail locations across Illinois.

Winners have one year from the date of the winning draw in which to claim their prize. The Illinois Lottery encourages all winners to write their name on the back of their ticket and keep it in a safe place until they’re ready to claim their prize.
