For A Second Time In A Week, A $1-Million Scratch Off Ticket Sold In South Suburbs

Second big winning ticket sold at the gas station in a month

An Illinois Lottery retailer strikes it lucky again. The BP gas station, located at 2791 US 34 in Oswego, sold a $1 million winning scratch-off lottery ticket, just a month after selling a $300,000 winning Lucky Day Lotto ticket.

The winning scratch-off ticket was a Diamond Crossword 10X game, creating a million dollar payout for a lucky Illinois Lottery player.
