A Chesterfield, Mo., resident won $100,000 in the Lucky Day Lotto after he bought a ticket at the Phillips 66 Route 3 Fuel & Lottery in Sauget.

David Kirkland found out he matched all five numbers — 01-03-05-12-30 — in the June 12 midday drawing when he checked the website.

“When I saw that I won such a big prize, I immediately signed the back of my ticket,” he told Illinois Lottery officials.

The convenience store received a 1 percent bonus — $1,000 — for selling the winning ticket.

The Lucky Day Lotto does drawings twice a day, all week.
