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.

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.

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:

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.

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.
