Someone in the metro-east has won big in the Illinois Lottery —but they haven’t cashed in their ticket yet.

A winning ticket sold at the Wood River Farm Fresh is worth $850,000 and remains unclaimed. The Illinois Lottery Lucky Day Lotto numbers on the ticket are 07, 10, 11, 14 and 19, according to

Lottery prize winners are urged to sign the back of the ticket to prevent theft, and then take it to a prize center — one is located in Fairview Heights. The tickets can only be redeemed for one year from the drawing date, so time is ticking.
