Here's Part 3 of the Illinois State Lottery's Super Shot program on WSNS Channel 44. This was the Lottery's basketball-related game (the "Super Shot" signified hitting a basket). The hosts were Bob Hale and Sandie Wolsfeld. Includes:

Bob clarifies about how matching 70 with the color basketball in the fourth game drawn would win $15 rather than $50 as he had indicated prior to the last commercial break, and going to the Super Shot Play-Off Game, with eight finalists in the studio. Chair #1 who is part of the group slated to win $2,500 is Ed Sullivan of Elmwood Park, IL (obviously no relation to the late TV variety show host who died in 1974); Chair #2 is Ed Johnson of Chicago; Chair #3 is Sharon Sola (sp?), serving as a proxy for Estaban (sp?) Martinez of Rockford, IL (Bob gives thanks to her and Mel Markon's Restaurant for having served as a proxy for the previous week); Chair #4 is Jan Madori (sp?), serving as a proxy for Frank Dvoran of Chicago; and Chair #5 is Grace Sanders of Chicago. Bob then explains the rules of the game, and which numbers are on which squares. Each of the contestants is to peel off the tape on each square, and he explains the amount that each would win according to what chair.

Chair #1 (Ed Sullivan) peels off the tape in second position, second row, revealing Chair #4; Chair #2 (Ed Johnson) peels off the tape in second position, third row, revealing Chair #3; Chair #3 (proxy Sharon) peels off the tape in third position, second row, revealing Chair #2; Chair #4 (proxy Jan) peels off the tape in top left position, revealing Chair #2 - Ed Johnson, who leaves the game winning $2,500; he is married with children and (at the time of this show) was a Post Office employee.

Chair #5 (Grace) is the next up, and reveals the tape at bottom right to be - her own, Chair #5! Chair #1 (the remaining Ed) picks the next number from the third position, first row, revealing Chair #3 - Sharon, proxy for Estaban who won $2,500.

Next, Jan lifts off the tape on the top right row to reveal Chair #1, and Grace lifts off the tape on the second position, first row to reveal the same chair - Ed Sullivan, who works in heating and air conditioning and who won $2,500.

Next to come up is Jan, proxy for Frank, who comes up extremely nervous; she is not married and does not know who she's a proxy for, but Grace who's watching from her chair is doing fine. Jan reveals Chair #5 (on third position, third row - so Grace wins $25,000 and Frank wins $100,000. The last number, Chair #4, was at bottom left. Jan, at the time of this show, worked at the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency as a financial cost analyst (and Bob initially gave the wrong prize to her). Grace works as a secretary and bookkeeper for a printing company, is widowed and has a daughter. Grace's daughter, Carol, comes up to greet her; she is married with two daughters. Grace says she doesn't know what she'll do with her winnings, and Sandy chimes in to "invest it well." Jan is too nervous to say what she would have done with $100,000 winnings, and Bob advises her to tell Frank of his big win. With that, Bob signals for the next commercial break, as we see the two winners (and Grace's daughter) with Bob and Sandie.
