I’m always amazed that some people buy lottery tickets but then don’t check the numbers to see if they won.

I was watching WGN News the other day and they had a news story on a whole bunch of unclaimed tickets!

Way back in February, someone bought a winning Lucky Day Lottery ticket worth $800K at the 7-Eleven on Belmont, but nobody’s come forward yet!

Same deal on April 5th. Someone went into the Bucky’s Express in Licolnwood and bought a ticket that ended up being worth $100,000 bucks.

Nothings been claimed on that one either!

Here’s a third Lucky Day Lotto story!

Ever been to the AF Truck Stop on North Avenue in Northlake?

Somebody bought a ticket there last Wednesday worth $350 thousand, but once again, nobody. Nada. Nothing.

How about this?

A Mega Millions ticket worth FIVE MILLION was sold at the Snappy Convenience Store in Ravenswood on April 14th but no one has come forward to grab that huge wad of cash!

Really?  I’d be at the Lottery office the next day looking for my over sized check!

I get that people have a year to claim their money, but wouldn’t you want it ASAP?

Here’s the link to the Illinois Lottery’s website so you can look up and check your numbers.

But if you win, I should get a cut of that cash just for reminding you!
