Someone went to the right gas station at the right time, and it happened to be in Loves Park. Illinois lottery officials are looking for the rightful owner of a Powerball ticket. This Powerball ticket happens to be worth $1 million.

If Illinois Lottery were to write up a Craigslist Missed Connections ad for this person it might look like this.

You walked in to pay for gas, buy some White Claw, and a stick of beef jerky. But then we made eye contact and, suddenly, you decided to buy a Powerball ticket. Little did you know this would be your destiny. I don't remember what you were wearing but you looked like a winner. If this is you, look at your Powerball and check for these numbers, 06 - 25 - 36 - 43 - 48. If this you, you owe me dinner.

(Actually there would be typos galore and grammatical errors as well)

Regardless, someone around here is their "golden ticket."

The winning Powerball ticket was purchased at Loves Park Mobil, 6224 N. 2nd St., in Loves Park and with these five numbers: 06 - 25 - 36 - 43 - 48.

Check your ticket, encourage friends and family to do the same, and enjoy your boosted bank account. You can find instructions on how to claim an Illinois Lottery prize HERE.
