A south suburban Glenwood resident recently won $75,000 playing the Illinois Lottery.

Sandra Batty, 54, was only an occasional lottery player when she stopped into a Glenwood Citgo gas station at 18659 S. Halsted to cash in a $6 winning instant ticket, according to the Illinois Lottery. Batty was in the gas station when she saw a $25 Ultimate Crossword ticket and decided to give it a try.

She was still in the store when she scratched it, the lottery said.

“When I saw the prize amount, I thought I might pass out,” Batty said.

She plans to use the money to take a vacation, pay bills and share with her family, the lottery said.
