LOVES PARK - One Lucky Day Lotto player trusted his gut when he decided to try his luck.

Lifelong Loves Park resident, 58 year-old Randy Triplett, won the April 25 Lucky Day Lotto evening drawing.  A feat netting him $150,000.

"I couldn't believe it" says Triplett.  "This money will help me so much while I try to find another job."

Triplett is a materials handler who has been unemployed since January.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Loves Park Clark at 5710 North 2nd Street.  The store will receive 1% of the winnings for selling the ticket.
