A Niles man has finally been rewarded for faithfully buying lottery tickets on the way home twice a week. Stanley Bolle has managed to match all 5 numbers in the June 20 draw of the Fantasy 5 game. He split a $416,450 prize with one other winner.
The winner had no idea that the ticket he had bought from the Phillips 66 gas station at 2326 South 11th Street in Niles is about to change his life. But when he checked the results just after the draw, he was shocked to discover he had won the top prize. He immediately told his wife, who had no idea at first that he was talking about a big bucks win.
With his $208,225 win, Bolles looks forward to only two things. One is finally being free from debt, and the other is to take his wife of 39 years to a honeymoon they never really had.
