Lisle man buys winning $275,000 lottery ticket in Downers Grove

DOWNERS GROVE – Lisle resident Dennis Murphy won $275,000 by matching all five numbers in the Lucky Day Lotto drawing Sept. 23.

Murphy, 65, picked the five winning numbers – 08, 09, 17, 18 and 20 – when he bought the ticket at DuPage Inn, 2410 West Ogden Ave., in Downers Grove.

He has lived in Lisle for 25 years, according to the Illinois State Lottery. He works as a handyman and plans to retire next year.

“Investing this windfall will make my retirement much easier,” he told the lottery.

The Downers Grove retailer will receive a $2,750 bonus, equal to 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.

This is the second big prize winning ticket recently sold by the DuPage Inn. In August, they sold a $4 million winning "50X The Cash" instant lottery ticket.

Two $275,000 winning tickets shared the $550,000 Lucky Day Lotto jackpot on Sept. 23.
