Humboldt Park man wins $100K lotto prize

A Humboldt Park man is $100,000 richer after recently playing the Lucky Day Lotto.

Epifanio Santos won the Jan. 22 drawing after purchasing a ticket at Safeway Food Mart, 4025 W. Armitage, and matching all five numbers: 01 – 08 – 23- 34 – 42, according to a statement from the Illinois Lottery.

The 56-year-old truck driver said he plans to use his winnings toward purchasing a house for his family.

“This is a true blessing and it’s all for my family,” he said. “Those who win should spend it on their loved ones.”

The retailer will receive $1,000, or 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.
