YORKVILLE, Ill. (WLS) -- A Yorkville man has won $1 million playing a scratch-off game, the Illinois Lottery said Monday.

Peter Stevenson bought the Million $$ Match ticket at a Jewel-Osco at 1177 S. Main St. in Lombard. Stevenson didn't believe he won until he was reassured by a store clerk, the Illinois Lottery said.

The store will receive a bonus of $10,000 for selling the ticket.

The Million $$ Match has three top prizes of $5 million, one of which has not been claimed.
