While we know where the ticket was sold, we don’t know the winner. The Lottery says the winner has yet to come forward.

“I’m excited to meet you. Unfortunately we don’t know who you are, but we look forward to meeting you and learning who you are,” said Polzin.

Mary Willems has been the general manager of the store for 15 years.

“We are a family-owned business. We love our customers. It’s kind of like a ‘Cheers’ here. Everybody knows their name,” Willems said.

“My heart’s racing, I have goosebumps all over. It’s great for our store. It’s great for our community here. We have a lot of regulars who play the game all the time and I’m hoping whoever won this ticket is a regular and we can share in their joy.”

The Jackson Pointe Citgo receives $100,000 for selling the winning ticket.
