A handful of people across Illinois are waking up a few thousand dollars richer, thanks to some recent big wins playing lucky numbers in the Illinois Lottery’s Pick 4 game.
According to lottery officials, nine players across the state won at least $10,000 during Pick 4’s Tuesday drawing. In Chicago, two players won $13,000, and one player won $15,400. And two players playing Pick 4 on the Illinois Lottery website won $10,000, and $10,400.
But the biggest winner of all — scooping up whopping $25,000 — was in Peoria.
Pick 4, the Illinois Lottery says, is a game where players “like to play meaningful numbers like a birth year, when purchasing tickets.”
In Tuesday’s drawing, more than 2,600 Pick 4 players matched some combination of the winning numbers, which were 1-9-7-8, lottery officials said.
Additionally, eight other Pick 4 players won between $10,000 and $15,400, lottery officials said, and more than 350 players won between $1,000 and $8,000.
