A northwest suburban woman has turned in a grand prize-winning Millionaire Lottery ticket, the Illinois Lottery announced Wednesday.

Laura Egel, who buys three or four lottery tickets a year, paid $5 for her winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 220 N. Walnut St. in Itasca. She claimed her prize earlier in January.

“I think I’m in shock,” Egel said when presenting her winning ticket at the prize center in Des Plaines, according to the statement.

The 7-Eleven will receive $10,000, or 1 percent of the winnings, for selling the ticket.
