A Park Ridge man hit the jackpot recently as he cashed in on a $200,000 winning lottery ticket.
That man, Park Ridge-resident Bart Iskra, matched all five numbers on his Quick Pick ticket for the Illinois Lottery midday drawing on June 9.
Iskra is one of two residents to win a prize in that lottery drawing, purchasing his ticket at a retailer in Stickney. The other winning ticket was sold at a store in Chicago, according to the Illinois Lottery. Both retailers will receive a bonus of $2,000 for selling the winning tickets.
“I’m so happy!,” Iskra said.
According to the Illinois Lottery website, Iskra plans to invest the money that he won in the drawing.
