BLOOMINGDALE – A Bloomingdale woman recently had a very lucky day when she found herself with a winning lottery ticket, according to a news release from the Illinois Lottery.

Anita Reboletti won $150,000 with a one dollar Lucky Day Lotto ticket that just happened to be a perfect match with the Aug. 6 evening drawing numbers, the release said.

“I am ecstatic that I won,” Reboletti said in the release. “I asked my son to double check my ticket and I started crying.”

Reboletti, who is married and has two sons, said in the release that she plays the lottery a few times each week, always with the same numbers, which have personal relevance.

She bought the lucky ticket at Convenient Food Mart, 280 Glen Ellyn Road, and plans to use her winnings to pay bills and donate to the American Cancer Society.
