Blooomington Man Lucky Lotto Player

BLOOMINGTON - The very first time Terry Meredith played Lucky Day Lotto he hit the jackpot
BLOOMINGTON - The very first time Terry Meredith played Lucky Day Lotto he hit the jackpot. “On a whim, I decided to try a Lucky Day Lotto $1 Quick Pick. I can’t believe I won!” said the lucky Bloomington resident when he presented his winning ticket at the Illinois Lottery Prize Center in Springfield. Meredith matched all five numbers – 11 – 22 - 29 – 33 – 36 – to win $100,000 in the December 24 Lucky Day Lotto evening drawing.

Meredith, a laborer, severely injured his shoulder recently and is recovering from surgery. “As a result I’m currently unemployed so this win couldn’t have come at a better time.” His plans for the windfall include paying bills and saving for a house. When asked if he had advice for other lottery players Meredith said, “I’ve played Powerball and Mega Millions a few times, but my first-ever Lucky Day Lotto ticket was my big winner. My advice is to try something new!”

The winning ticket was purchased at 6 Points Fast Stop, 1001 Six Points Road in Bloomington. The retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus, equal to 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.

Jackpots for Lucky Day Lotto start at $100,000. Drawings are twice a day, seven days a week with an average of 40,000 winners every day. That’s over 250,000 winners in Illinois each week!
