While on his way to play golf with friends, one Indiana resident bought an Illinois lottery ticket and won.
On March 15, just before the end of the Illinois Lottery St. Patrick’s Day Millionaire Promotion, Michael Korzenicki stopped to buy a ticket for the promotion. He knew the promotion was almost over and wanted to try his luck before getting to the golf course.
On May 1, Korzenecki realized he had won $100,000. His ticket was randomly selected on a raffle drawing on March 17. He didn’t discover his win until looking on the Illinois Lottery website.
Korzenecki is happy he made the stop to buy his ticket. He is now $100,000 richer.
So many lottery players are winning when visiting other states. So next time you’re on vacation, try your luck and you could win big!
