All lottery officials know is the ticket was sold at a Speedy Cafe Speedway gas station in Des Plaines, says Harold Mays, director of the Illinois Lottery. But they have no idea who bought it, he adds.
“For a prize of this magnitude, it’s not unusual for the winner to take a while to claim,” Mays says. “I’m sure they’re going through a range of emotions.”
