A Chicago factory worker won $1 million from a $250,000,000 Cash Spectacular ticket.

Howerd Petersen bought the winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 4859 N. Milwaukee Ave., according to a release from the Illinois Lottery.

“Every payday I treat myself to a $250,000,000 Cash Spectacular instant ticket, but I never really expect to win,” Petersen said in the release.

“I still don’t believe it!” Petersen said.

He plans to share his prize money with his mother and brother and invest for retirement, according to the release.

7-Eleven will receive a $10,000 bonus, one percent of the prize amount.
