Winner selected in $7 million 'Queen of Hearts' drawing in McHenry

A lucky player is taking home the multi-million-dollar Queen of Hearts jackpot in McHenry.

The jackpot has been rolling over since November 2016, but the VFW had felt like the madness was getting out of hand and kept drawing Tuesday night until there was a winner.

It took four draws for them to find their winner. The only thing we know about her is her name: Lori S. Officials at the VFW have contacted her, and she is choosing to remain anonymous.

On the line was a $7-million-dollar pot. The winner will take home $2.8 million dollars after taxes.

There were more than 2 million tickets sold, so many that they had to throw all the tickets in a big drum.

Twenty percent of the $7-million-dollar pot will go toward repairs at VFW. The remaining 20 percent goes toward starting a new pot in January.
