Dixon, IL (WIFR) – Monica Barkowski is the Lottery’s newest Lucky Day Lotto winner. The Dixon resident bought a $1 Quick Pick and matched all five numbers – 02 - 20 - 21 - 25 – 29 – in the October 23rd drawing and won $112,500.
“First I checked the winning Lucky Day Lotto numbers in the newspaper, but wanted to make sure so returned to the store where I bought my ticket and checked it again. Still, I wasn’t convinced, so I came home and looked up the numbers on the Illinois Lottery website,” Barkowski said. “I still can’t believe I won!”
Barkowski, an assembler at Donaldson’s Corporation, has lived in Dixon all her life. She and her husband, James, have four children and three grandchildren. In addition to investing for retirement, they plan to renovate their kitchen. “I’ve always wanted to give my kitchen a make-over,” she said.
The winning ticket was purchased at Dixon Food Center, 500 Chicago Avenue. The store will receive a $1,125 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
