CRESTWOOD, Ill. — A $56 million winning Mega Millions lottery ticket was sold Tuesday night at a Crestwood gas station.
The winning ticket, the largest lottery prize won in Illinois since 2017, was purchased at a Citgo gas station in the 13800 block of South Pulaski Road.
“I don’t know if the winner has come forward yet. Hopefully, it’s a regular player. We will now be known as a lucky store, which is great,” store owners Cue and Nabila said.
The pair will receive a $500,000 selling bonus.
The player, who has not been identified yet, has 12 months from the date of the draw to claim the prize.
