One lucky lottery player is $16.5 million better off today after the winning Illinois lottery ticket sold in Joliet matched all six numbers in the Illinois Lottery draw on Saturday night. The winning lottery numbers were 7, 15, 21, 31, 45 and 50. The winning $16.5 million lottery ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven 2405 Easington Road, Joliet.
The news of this lottery win could not come at a better time for the Illinois Lottery. With the launch of the new scratch off Quality of Life game, called Red Ribbon Bucks, the publicity of this recent fantastic lottery win will stand the Illinois Lottery in good stead to promote this new game which serves the purpose of raising money to fund Aids awareness in Illinois, a cause that will touch the hearts of many people as the world bid to eradicate this terrible disease.
The Illinois Lottery also participates in the MegaMillions. With the current jackpot for this lottery game standing at a whopping $83 million, a win of this kind for the state of Illinois would certainly be welcome, along with the publicity that comes with such a huge lottery win. The next MegaMillions drawing is due to take place this evening and again on Friday evening and is the largest multi state lottery game in America.
It is hoped that when people buy lottery tickets for the Illinois Lottery, they may decide to have a flutter on the Quality of Life game too and help to support what is considered to be a very worthy cause.
