A Minooka man and his wife will be traveling to Chicago Wednesday morning to claim a Lottery prize of more than $11 million. Illinois Lottery officials are withholding the name of the winner until Wednesday, but said the Minooka man and his wife will be claiming the prize together.
The winning ticket was sold from the BP Fast N Fresh in Morris, 150 E. Commercial. The station is on the corner of Commercial and Route 47.
The couple have opted for a lump sum payment of the prize, Olamide Aruwajoye, Illinois Lottery Public Relations Specialist said. The prize totals $11.25 million before taxes.
The ticket was sold on Dec. 10 and the man came forward Monday morning.
