A newlywed west suburban man won $100,000 with a scratch-off lottery ticket.
Brennan Peckhart bought a “Million $$ Match” ticket at the 7-Eleven at 2304 Maple Ave. in Downers Grove and instantly won the prize when he scratched it at his Westmont home, according to a statement from the Illinois Lottery.
“I just got married three months ago, and now I won this lottery prize,” Peckhart said. “I feel very lucky.”
Peckhart and his wife plan to invest some of the winnings.
The 7-Eleven received a bonus of $1,000, or 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.
