History of the Illinois Lottery

The Illinois Lottery was established on July 1st, 1974 and started selling lottery tickets on July 30th. The first-ever Illinois Lottery drawing took place on August 8th of that same year. The first instant win games were introduced in 1975 and in 1985 the Illinois Lottery began allocating proceeds to the Common School Fund as opposed to the General Revenue Fund for the state. Illinois was the first state in the country to offer online ticket sales to residents.

Today, the Illinois Lottery transfers revenue raised from ticket sales to a number of good causes, including the Common School Fund, the Capital Projects fund and a number of special initiatives. In the 2013 Fiscal Year, the Lottery raised $793 million for these institutions. In addition, four instant win games are specifically dedicated to raising money for veterans, for those living with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer research and multiple sclerosis research.

Buying Illinois Lottery Tickets

You can always pick up Illinois Lottery tickets from a local authorized retailer - don't forget to take a chance on some instant win games while you're there! You can also purchase tickets for Illinois Lottery jackpot games, including Powerball, Mega Millions and Illinois Lotto, online by visiting the Illinois Lottery website and signing up for a subscription.

Want to play Illinois Lottery games? You'll need to make a visit to an authorized Illinois Lottery retailer somewhere in the Land of Lincoln.

Playing Illinois Lottery Games

There's more to the Illinois Lottery than just Powerball and Mega Millions - players can buy tickets for home-grown draw games that are as robust as the Illinois prairies.

Illinois Lotto offers players a shot at winning a multi-million dollar jackpot on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9:22 PM. Simply pay $1 per line and select six numbers from 1 to 52 or have them randomly generated for you via the Quick Pick option.

Winning Tier Prize Won Odds
Match 6 Jackpot 1 in 20,358,520
Match 5 Pari-mutuel; estimated $2,000 1 in 73,763
Match 4 Pari-mutuel; estimated $50 1 in 1,311
Match 3 Fixed amount of $5 1 in 67
Match 2 Fixed amount of $1 1 in 8.32

Don't forget to pay an extra $1 per line for the chance to match the Extra Shot number, which will increase the value of any non-jackpot prizes that might come your way by up to 25 times! Here's how it works:

Winning Tier Prize Won Odds
Match 5+ Extra Shot Pari-mutuel; estimated $50,000 1 in 1,844,069

Lucky Day Lotto drawings take place twice a day, seven days a week so that you never miss out on the chance to win a great cash prize. Whether you opt for the 12:40 PM drawing or the 9:22 PM drawing, you're sure to have lots of fun. All you need to do is pay $1 per line and pick five numbers from 1 to 45 or opt for a Quick Pick.

Of course, if you're looking for an instant win before the draw even takes place, you can always try out EZmatch, which offers you a shot at snapping up some cash while you wait for the Lucky Day Lotto numbers. When you pay an extra $1, you'll have a second set of numbers generated on your ticket and each number will have a cash value assigned to it. If any number in the second set matches any of your Lucky Day Lotto numbers, you'll win cash right there and then! Here are the odds:

Prize Odds
$5,000 1 in 260,000
$1,000 1 in 52,000
$100 1 in 2,600
$50 1 in 1,300
$10 1 in 217
$5 1 in 81
$2 1 in 5
Overall odds of winning an EZmatch prize are 1 in 5

Similar to the All or Nothing game popular in Georgia, Texas and other states, Hit or Miss is a lottery game with a unique twist. Drawn four times a day at 10:30 AM, 12:40 PM, 6:30 PM and 9:22 PM, you'll have loads of chances to win great prizes! Pay just $2 per line and pick 12 numbers from 1 to 24. If you match all twelve numbers or match none of them, you'll win the grand prize of $250,000! Even better, if you've won the jackpot, you have a chance to win a prize of $100,000 per year for 20 years if one of the numbers you picked matches the Good Life Number chosen in the drawing. Here are the odds and the prize breakdowns:

Match Prize Odds
Match 12 + Good Life Number Instant $250,000 plus $100,000 per year for 20 years 1 in 13,520,780

Other Illinois Lottery games include Pick 3 and Pick 4.

Instant win games are a great option for those who want to experience a thrilling lottery experience straight away. Available from authorized Illinois Lottery retailers, prices for these games start at $1 and can net you a windfall that could rival those offered by Lotto and other Illinois Lottery draw games. Visit your local Illinois Lottery retailer to buy some - who knows, you could snag a prize on the first go!

Certain instant win games donate a portion of the revenue raised through sales to specific good causes. The Veterans Cash game has raised over $11 million for veterans in the state since 2006, while the Ticket for the Cure has raised over $7.6 million for breast cancer research.

Claiming Illinois Lottery Prizes

Most Illinois Lottery retailers will be able to pay out prizes worth up to $600 depending on their preferences and amount of cash on hand. You can also cash your tickets at dedicated Prize Claim Centers across Illinois, or you can mail the winning ticket (after you've signed it and made a copy for your records) to the Illinois Lottery Claims Department in Springfield.

If you've won between $600 and $25,000 in a drawing, you can visit a Prize Claim Center or mail in your ticket and supporting evidence of your identity, including photo ID and your Social Security number. Prizes worth $25,001 to $999,999 can only be claimed by mail. If you're lucky enough to win over $1 million, you'll need to get in touch with the Illinois Lottery yourself to begin the claims process.

The Fine Print

Want to play Illinois Lottery games for the chance to win great prizes? You'll need to be at least 18 years old.

If you want to play online via the Illinois Lottery subscription service, then you'll need to be physically located in the state.

Anyone who contacts you out of the blue saying that you've won an Illinois Lottery prize should be treated with extreme caution. If you win a prize in an Illinois Lottery game, it's up to you to make the first move and get in touch with officials. You also can't win any lottery, raffle or sweepstake you haven't entered.
