A Chicago Ridge store recently sold a grand-prize-winning ticket for the Lucky Day Lotto midday drawing, meaning someone in the area could be — or is — $300,000 richer.

The winner had not come forward as of Jan. 31, lottery officials said in a news release.

The winner bought their winning ticket at Tony’s Liquor & Tobacco, 10610 Ridgeland Ave., and matched all five numbers: 2, 4, 5, 7 and 12, in the Jan. 31 midday drawing.

The store was to receive a bonus of $3,000, 1 percent of the jackpot amount, for selling a winning ticket, lottery officials said.

There had been 47 midday grand-prize winners through Jan. 31 since the June 2 launch of the new Lucky Day Lotto midday drawing.

Jackpots for Lucky Day Lotto start at $100,000. Lucky Day Lotto drawings are twice a day, seven days a week, with an average of more than 40,000 winners every day, lottery officials said.
