ST. CHARLES – A St. Charles store sold a grand-prize winning ticket for Thurday's Lucky Day Lotto midday drawing, meaning someone in the area could be $200,000 richer, states a news release.

The winner, who had yet to come forward as of Thursday afternoon, purchased the winning Quick Pick ticket at 7-Eleven, 1705 W. Main St., and matched all five numbers – 06 - 09 - 15 - 20 - 22 –  in the June 19 midday drawing.

The retailer will receive a bonus of $2,000, 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling a winning ticket, the release states.

There have been 84 midday grand-prize winners since the June 2, 2013, launch of the new Lucky Day Lotto midday drawing. More than 15,000 Illinoisans won prizes ranging from $100 to $1 in the Lucky Day Lotto midday drawing on Thursday, the release states.

Lucky Day Lotto drawings are twice a day, seven days a week, with an average of 40,000 winners every day, the release states. For more information, visit www.illinoislottery.com.
