A DeKalb man won a $75,000 prize when he scratched off an Ultimate Crossword ticket.
Bruce Chennell of DeKalb won by playing the instant win scratch-off game. Channell says he has played the Illinois Lottery for decades, but this is his biggest win. He plans to use his winnings to finance his daughter’s wedding and to take a European river cruise with his wife.
The winning ticket was purchased at FAS Mart, at 933 S. 4th Street, in DeKalb.
