Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — Illinois residents in Quincy, Springfield and Chicago each won $100,000 on Monday in the second of the state’s “All In for the Win” vaccine lottery drawing.

The Illinois Department of Public Health will be notifying winners by phone or email starting this afternoon.

Illinoisans from those cities and counties should keep their phones on and check their emails regularly to find out if they’ve won. IDPH will call from 312-814-3524 and or email from DPH.communications@illinois.gov. No personal information will be requested in the initial phone or email notification. Winners will have seven days to securely complete, sign and send the authorization form to IDPH to accept their prizes. The Illinois Lottery will then guide winners through the claims process. Winners will be announced eight days after each draw unless they choose to remain anonymous.

Last Thursday, the first million-dollar winner was chosen in Chicago, and three $150,000 scholarship winners were picked in DeKalb County, Suburban Cook County and Chicago. The state will celebrate the winners and announce their names on Friday, unless they choose to remain anonymous.
