CHICAGO (STMW) – The person who bought a Little Lotto ticket in south suburban Blue Island for Monday night’s drawing likely didn’t think much of the numbers on the Quick Pick ticket — they ranged from 30 to 39.

But hopefully they held on to the ticket, since it matched all five numbers: 30-31-33-38-39. The winning ticket was sold at Danny’s Market Place, 1965 Vermont St. in Blue Island, according to the Illinois Lottery.

That one player, the only one who matched all five in Monday night’s drawing, will collect $475,000, according to the Illinois Lottery.

Another 186 players matched four of the five and will each receive $100. The next Little Lotto drawing is Tuesday night with a grand prize of $100,000.
