    Illinois Lottery
    Carol Davis and Conrad Rask finally hit the big one after years of playing the lottery.

    Years of playing the Illinois Lottery paid off for two Carol Stream friends.

    Carol Davis and Conrad Rask will share a $7.4 million jackpot after their April 29 Quick Pick Lotto ticket matched all six numbers.

    Lottery officials say the two met eight years ago when Rask used to visit a restaurant where Davis was the manager. Rask says Davis used to scratch lottery tickets during breaks, which led to the two playing together.

    The pair has won smaller prizes before, but nothing of this magnitude.
