An Kankakee, Ill., woman won a $150,000 lottery prize after her family members' ages were chosen as the winning numbers.
Andrea Logan matched all five numbers -- 16, 18, 22, 36, 38 -- in the evening drawing on Dec. 23, according to a statement by the Illinois Lottery obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times.
"I play my family members' ages, so I know my numbers and I recognized them right away," Logan said. "I started shaking! I couldn't believe it!"
For selling the winning ticket, SS Friendly Mart in Kankakee received a $1,500 bonus, worth 1 percent of the prize amount.
