FREEPORT, IL — May 26, 2017 — Freeport resident Linda Tyler scratched an Illinois Lottery Crossword ticket and instantly won a top prize of $50,000.  “I know someone who won a $50,000 Crossword prize a few years ago, and I thought that if it could happen to them, it could happen to me, too.  And it did!”
