$1M Halloween Raffle Lottery Ticket Sold at Boston's Gourmet Pizza

The winning ticket holder has yet to come forward, lottery officials say. Two, winning $1,000 tickets also were sold in Tinley Park.

A $1 million lottery ticket—part of the Illinois Lottery's Halloween Millionaire Raffle promotion—was sold at Boston's Gourmet Pizza, according to a lottery official.

"Is that true?" asked Lisa Helwig, a manager at Boston's, when Patch contacted her Thursday afternoon. She had not been alerted by lottery officials yet but contacted the agency later to confirm the restaurant sold one of the four $1 million tickets.

As of 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1. No one had claimed the ticket with the winning number of 137958, said lottery spokesman Mike Lang. The lottery drawing and announcement of the winning numbers was Halloween, naturally.

"It's still out there," Helwig said about the $1 million ticket sold at the restaurant, which hadn't been contacted by the winner.

Two, winning $1,000 tickets also were sold in Tinley Park: one at the Mobil Food Mart on Oak Park Avenue, and another at the Delta Sonic Car Wash on 159th Street, according to the lottery's winnings page.

The winning numbers were: 26052 (Mobil Food Mart) and 40127 (Delta Sonic Car Wash).

The odds for winning one of four $1 million prizes for this lottery were 1 in 125,000. The odds for the one of the 500 $1,000 prizes were 1 in 1000. Each lottery ticket cost $20.
