$1M Powerball Ticket Sold On South Side

CHICAGO (STMW) — Saturday night’s $70 million Powerball jackpot went to a player in New York state, but someone who bought their ticket on the South Side came out pretty well, though.

The winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing were: 06 – 11 – 42 – 53 and 54, and the Power Ball number was 07.

Though the New York player matched all the numbers drawn, in Illinois someone who bought their ticket at The Neighborhood Store, 8313 S. Racine Av., matched five of five numbers and will collect $1 million, according to the Illinois Lottery.

Another three Illinois players matched four of five numbers and the Power Ball, and they will each collect $10,000.

The next Powerball drawing will be held Wednesday. The grand prize for that game is $40 million.

    I’m sure whoever it is will spend it on alcohol or drugs unless they get murdered over it first.

      Maybe they should hire a hitman to come after you.

        Typical ne@ro response.

    Sad pitiful comment Leroy Goldberg. That sounds like a bias comment. I too play at The Neighborhood Store. Just because the store is located on the south side, doesn’t automatically mean they will foolishly spend the money. I don’t drink or do drugs. The possibility of ANYONE getting murdered over it is ridiculous! Maybe they will invest it. Pay off a mortgage, car or pay for their children’s college tuition……smh

    Leroy Goldberg is currently resting after having a bout of inbreeding with his sister – Mr. Afro. They are hoping for the next great white dope to protect their basement dwelling and porn stash. Their baby will have the biggest forehead ever. They will then be able to write their manifest – “words from beneath the bridge” That is all.
