(Sun-Times Media Wire) - A Glenview man recently won a $5 million grand prize with a scratch-off lottery ticket.
Thomas Holloway was at a Jewel grocery store, 1340 Patriot Blvd. in Glenview, when he scratched the “Million $$ Match” ticket after buying it from a lottery service machine, according to the Illinois Lottery.
“I was shocked when I saw the $5 million prize amount,” said Holloway, who chose to take his prize as a single $3 million lump sum.
“I have already met with financial planners and I am going to invest this money wisely,” he added.
Jewel received $50,000, or one percent of the prize amount, for selling the ticket, the lottery said.
