Jeff Stoecklin, 55, had the winning ticket Sept. 15 for the Lucky Day Lotto. The Edwardsville resident won $250,000 at the midday drawing, with numbers 23-24-26-32-36.
“I plan to invest this money wisely,” he said, according to a news release, when he presented his ticket at the Illinois Lottery Prize Center in Fairview Heights.
Stoecklin told lottery officials that he regularly plays the Lucky Day Lotto.
The winning ticket was purchased at MotoMart at 1905 N. Main in Edwardsville, which nets the store a bonus of $2,500, or 1 percent, for selling the winning ticket.
