SHARE Oak Lawn man wins $250,000 lottery prize

A southwest suburban Oak Lawn man won $250,000 with a scratch-off lottery ticket.

James Molitor scratched a “Sizzlin’ 7s” ticket in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven at 4500 W. 63rd St in Chicago and instantly won one of the seven top $250,000 prizes, according to a statement from the Illinois Lottery.

“My mom told me she had a feeling I would win a big Lottery prize,” Moliter said. He plans to share his winnings with his mother.

The 7-Eleven that sold the winning ticket will receive $2,500, or one percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.
