Feelin Lucky, Punk?

Although there was not a big winner in Saturday night's Powerball jackpot drawing, the Redeye is reporting:

Stores in Uptown and Belmont Central sold two Powerball winners, worth $200,000 each, in advance of Saturday's drawing, the Illinois Lottery announced in a news release. The winners matched five numbers – 8, 17, 18, 40 and 44 – but not the Powerball number 16, the release stated.

The tickets were sold at a 7-Eleven (5959 W. Belmont Ave.) in Belmont Central and a Chicago Dollar (4517 N. Sheridan Road) in Uptown, the release stated. Winners had not come forward as of Monday evening.

So, if you bought your ticket at Chicago Dollar, you may want to check to see if you're a winner!
