$1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold in Suburbs

Round Lake gas station sells winning ticket



    An Illinois ticket buyer wasn't lucky enough to snag Wednesday's $448 million Powerball jackpot, but somebody in the suburbs will walk away with a nice chunk of change.

    A Round Lake gas station sold a $1 million ticket in Wednesday's drawing after matching the first five numbers in the drawing, according to the Illinois Lottery.

    The Quick Pick ticket was purchased at an Amoco station at 320 West Nippersink, which will receive a $10,000 bonus.

    The winner has yet to step forward.
