“I feel very lucky.”

That was word from Joe Staver when he presented his winning Lucky Day Lotto ticket at the Illinois Lottery Prize Center in Rockford. Staver, a lifetime resident of Harvard, won a $650,000 jackpot prize when he matched all five numbers of the Saturday, March 12th drawing.

Staver purchased his ticket at Chemung County Store on Rt. 173 in Harvard. The retailer receives a bonus of $6,500, or 1% of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.

Staver says he plans to use the money to buy a new house and two new cars.
