JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - If you stopped in recently at a gas station in Joliet, better check your Lottery tickets.

You may have won $5.7 million.

An Illinois Lottery ticket worth that amount was sold at the Speedway gas station.

The (Joliet) Herald-News reports (http://bit.ly/16wiXQ8 ) that the mystery winner bought a Quick Pick Lotto ticket for Thursday night's drawing that matched all six numbers: 11, 15, 29, 41, 42 and 43.

Standing outside the gas station Friday, Francis Caan of Crest Hill imagined what he'd do with that kind of money if he'd won: pay off his bills and put some money away for his grandchildren.
