CHANNAHON, Ill. (WLS) -- If you recently purchased a Lucky Day Lotto ticket at a liquor store in south suburban Channahon, you could be $1.3 million richer!

USA Liquors, located at 25228 West Reed Street, sold a Quick Pick Lucy Day Lotto ticket that matched all five numbers in Wednesday evening's drawing, the Illinois Lottery said.

The winning numbers were: 14-18-27-31-45

Lottery officials urged players to check their tickets. The winner should sign the back of their ticket immediately and keep it in a safe place.

That person has one year from the drawing date - Dec. 20 - to claim their prize. They can do so by visiting an Illinois Lottery prize center, lottery officials said. There are five locations in the state: Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, Springfield and Fairview Heights.

The liquor store will receive a $13,000 bonus, or 1 percent of the winning prize, for selling the winning ticket, lottery officials said.

More than 35,000 Illinois Lottery players won prizes, ranging from $1 to $200, in Wednesday night's Lucky Day Lotto drawing.

Lucky Day Lotto drawings are held twice a day, seven days a week. For more information, visit www.illinoislottery.com.
