A $1 million ticket went to a lucky player in Evanston, Illinois, at the 7-Eleven located at 847 N. Dodge Ave.

Another Illinois player won $20,000 after matching four numbers, plus adding the game’s Megaplier feature.

And five more players won $10,000 after matching four numbers.

Retailers that sell the winning tickets receive a selling bonus of 1% of the prize amount.
