  1. They do need to put this back on TV because they are cheating they pulled the least amount numbers that was placed to treat this terrible anymore I will shopping in for my cigarettes and my lottery tickets Illinois Lottery is cheap everybody in the whole world

    00
  2. I have been playing the same number for pick 4 for every single drawing this year. There is ALWAYS 1 number missing from a win for me. I’m convinced that the software is designed to ensure the lowest possible payout for the state (or private company that owns it) so they don’t have to pay as much. The ball machines NEED to be brought back and the drawings NEED to be televised live. So many numbers that never, ever come in that used to when the ball machines were used…..especially triples on the pick 3 like 000. My pick 4 number never comes in and all 4 numbers are different. IT IS DEFINITELY RIGGED!

    00
  3. I think the Illinois lottery should bring back the live drawings because you can watch as numbers are being drawn the random number generator is okay but it knows what number everybody played so when it has to pick a number to pay out on it will do it however when they need to pay out on the number no one has it knows what number they can pay out the least amount. On June 26 drawing the number was 626 midday a lot of winners but somebody is selecting these numbers behind the scenes

    00
  4. I think the pick 3 and pick 4 and lucky day lotto is fixed they have to pay out on certain numbers to keep you playing the lucky day lotto the winners are selected. Also on pick 3 they know what number you have already but they decide what number to bring out also there have been repeating numbers on pick 3 which is odd because the chances of that happening is 1 out of 1000

    00
  5. Today’s Midday Lucky Day winning numbers are 38-39-41-42-43. Really? These drawings need to be televised.

    00
  6. To All Players in Illinois Let’s Start a Petition To Have The Drawing Televised So We Can Watch The Numbers Being Drawn So No Funny Business Going On.

    00
  7. I bought 200 dollars worth of 20 dollar tickets….. I won 40. I was an avid player but I think Covid put more losers out….. I won’t be a player any longer.

    00
  8. I think it’s rigged for whites to when all the big prizes. Why aren’t the pic 3 and 4 televised ANYMORE? I’ve come to the conclusion that’s it’s just ANOTHER WHITE MAN’s TRICK to rip people of color OFF!!! I wouldn’t be surprised when if there was an indicator button that’s pushed so African Americans DONT win. I wonder why the ONLY people I see selling lottery tickets are people from India. This is America. I bet Americans aren’t in India selling lottery tickets so why are people from India over here selling them? There is something wrong with this entire picture. There is something going on and they need to be EXPOSED!!! I’ll be so glad when the LIARS ARE EXPOSED FOR WHO THEY ARE.

  9. It’s nothing but a rip off you play day after day and ever win shit. They the only real winners

    00
  10. I pray the lottery is not a scam, but when u see the areas that most of the big winners live in gives you pause. Then many small stores and gas stations won’t redeem tickets for even the $600 or less, claiming they don’t have the cash, at the same time selling tickets and taking in cash. What can be done about that?

    00
  11. Any jackpot not collected should go back in play. The State keeps it and for that, I know many people that won’t play. Also, the digital drawing is a scam. Rather give a homeless guy a dollar.

    00
  12. I’m out, two dollars for a Il. lotto ticket, no way. And I have been playing since 1977. Illinois can go fly a kite as far as I’m concerned. They lost my money.

    00
    • My thoughts exactly. I won’t play ANY lottery game ever again. Three chances to win, really? Two of my new chances require all six numbers, period. How is that worth an extra dollar?

      00
  13. So the Illinois lotto decides to scam more by making 1 dollar to 2 dollars in the middle of an increased jackpot. why because they didn’t increase the amount of the jackpot. They don’t want ordinary people who could win to get a chance to win. Why increase if you’re not going to increase the jackpot I’m so done with this good luck making revenue cause people aren’t gonna give what they don’t already have and people are playing just have that bit of luck now it’s more like deciding 2 dollars even worth it.

    00
  14. I would give it zero stars if I could. This is a joke. You cannot even get results today at 2pm when the drawing was almost 2 hours ago! This is a scam! They need to be investigated or we need to demand live drawings again

    00
  15. I also thought the same thing about the online winners for the Lucky Day Lotto and the winning jackpots that are usually between 300,000 – 700,000.
    Someone within the Illinois Lottery is committing fraud.

    Last night’s jackpot was 500,000. Someone won.
    I checked their website to see if it was an online winner, but to my surprise; they did not disclose it. I checked the past winners and they have removed that particular information.
    Someone won a few million on the Lotto in December 2020 – it was an online winner.

    The media should conduct an investigation and request an FOIA to see who the winners are and their affiliation with the employees from the Illinois Lottery.
    Such a Crooked state, city, and county!!!

    00
  16. A crooked game in the “crookedest” state in the country?? Hmmm
    It isn’t fun anymore when you rarely win enough to get 10% of what you put in. I’m done!

    00
  17. Why is it from Jan-Feb the lucky day lotto draws to 350k-450k and up the winner is someone online? The frequency of the online winners doesn’t make sense – unless they want more people to sign up online

    Go look at past winners. The probability of online winners winning each time the pot gets that high is cause to look into

    00
  18. Why is there not a live drawing? Who is overlooking this? How do we know it is fair? Why can’t there be a check put on this by some sort of agency or credible investigation to ensure the public? I want to think it’s fair but when it’s done this way it seems there’s room for it not to be, why not make it full proof? There to be a way to do so, I think it has to be looked into to ensure that, I also think there needs to be more transparency like live drawings and someway that it is overseen so it’s guaranteed to be random, and there’s no chance for manipulation, I want to and would hope to think people aren’t being taken advantage of, so why not prove that to the public? even if it is all legit why not take steps to further prove it? I don’t know if a check is put on this, but if not it should be by some means thats not compromised in order to ensure the publics trust that its fair, I wish I knew who or what that is not compromised in any way could put a check ✔ on the Illinois lottery to ensure fairness for all, because if it is not, and I said if because I really don’t know but if it is not than the public is being taken advantage of and I hope that’s not the case, but if anybody knows how to check on this please suggest, I think we all just want to make sure its random, numbers drawn are random and not controlled or manipulated so that for instance a computer doesn’t allow certain numbers because it knows what people played, again im not saying thats the case but without transparency and an uncompromising overview , it leaves question, and I might be wrong there may be ways its looked into fairly but I’ve called and I haven’t gotten an example of how or if thats done, certainly not having a live drawing doesn’t seem right but even if it was live whos checking that its not some how not manipulated, I would like a check put on this for the sake of all of the public, please make suggestions ill check back and look for other peoples suggestios

  19. Ever since the terrible JB Pritzker became governor, there seem to be no winning tickets for Illinois. Before he was governor I used to get a good amount of winning tickets of $100 or more and if not that most of the time I got my money back. Now I don’t even get a winning ticket for even $1. It is ridiculous. Time to boycott the Illinois lottery. It is a joke.

    00
    • It’s rigged in favor of the crooks. They’ll throw a bone to a peasant once in a while for optics. It’s just a poor man’s tax.

      00
  20. You guys don’t even broadcast the pick 3 or pick 4 anymore now you guys have these mystery drawings and we’re just supposed to take your word that those were the actual numbers that were drawn you guys have made playing no more fun.

  21. Illinois Lottery has become very fraudulent. While most people understand the concept of gambling being a game of chance. Over time, there is supposed to be a viable opportunity of winning — which is the motivation for most people participating in the play. However, when it comes to the Illinois Lottery system, this opportunity is all smoke and mirrors. The scratch-off tickets are a joke; even nominal prizes are difficult to win. The odds of winning anything is severely compromised, and this is obvious by the fact that there are people who are purchasing entire rolls of tickets where no winners appear to be present. Additionally, the reality of top prize wins are literally non-existent because the truth of the matter is that in most cases these top prizes are not in circulation in the first place. Illinois Lottery is merely selling the “idea of winning” while simultaneously being allowed to collect high volumes of revenue without creating real opportunities for an actual win. When it comes to Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets, the lottery company has done very little to hide the fact that it does not respect, or value its long time customer base. They are blatantly manipulating the wins by counting numbers and tickets in advance in order to avoid large payouts, and has abandoned its long time practice of being able to win on multiples of the same number, but for promotional purposes only, is still being allowed to sells this concept as a viable possibility when it clearly is not; in order to dupe people into spending more money. Also, the possibility of winning online with Illinois Lottery is almost zero, since the system appears to be set up to recognize and avoid selecting the numbers that are being played.

    In previous years, you would occasionally win, or know someone who would win amounts over $600 with enough of a frequency that it at least looked authentic. Nowadays, the MOST you ever see people win is $100, and even that is few and far between. Also notable, is the fact that when it comes to the Jackpot wins, Illinois has a very sketchy history of ever producing a winner. Even on the few occasions where it did, the winning tickets almost always magically materialized in small white locales where diversity is non-existent. The bottom line is that the Illinois Lottery is a corrupt system that is exclusively being allowed to sell fantasy with no possibility of ever securing the reality of a win.

  22. Fraudulent scam run by sophisticated computers full support by greedy rulers. No fairness. No ethics in their operations. We fools always believe in hope.

    00
  23. Have anyone noticed that whenever you play a scratch off they always put the top prize on them but never let you win that prize and whatever the winner number is the gone give you 1 number below it or 1 number higher to make you think that you were close? It’s all a scam

    00
  24. Illinois scratch offs are a scam. You can’t win anymore and the odds are actually worse than they say they are. I bought a book of those green $20 holiday merry & bright for $600 as a gift to myself. Guaranteed $100 winner in every book. I scanned all my tickets twice in case there was error or missed winners. NOPE. No $100 winner in the book. This is CORRUPTION/FRAUD by the state of Illinois.

    00
  25. It’s crazy that you never win on scratch offs and then when you finally do win you already know what your prize gone be before you see it the same 1 or 2 dollars over and over again. They never let you win big prizes over and over again. They take but they don’t want to give back

    00
  26. Did anybody see where last night on December 18th that they never put out they evening numbers and I just check this morning at 11 something and they still haven’t put out the number for last night? I told people that the lottery was a scam.

    00
  27. Ive been trying to find out the winning numbers for lucky day evening 12/18/20 did they draw or not even lottery sales can not tell me what’s going on can I get my money back if they didn’t draw it

    00
  28. I just tried to play with pick my own numbers last lotto just before 900pm and all my circles where neatly circled in and it kept denying my slip just think its a little suspicious since the lotto is computerized. Even the teller was weirded by it cause the numbers were well circled.

    00
  29. It would be nice if they let people win more instead of just ripping people off taking their money. The new system they created they know what numbers people played and how many people played that number that’s why they don’t let that number fall out they let another number fall out that less people played so that’s less money that they have to pay out.
    At least that’s my opinion what I think is going on. just let you can buy 5 scratch off tickets and neither one of them are winner’s that’s not right and when you do ever win they give you the same dollar prize over and over never the big prizes that’s not right.

    00
  30. The website is constantly on maintenance after a draw and you cannot log in to see if you won

    00
  31. I had won online $220 and the funds were supposed to be direct deposit back in July. To date haven’t seen funds. I was told by an employee on the player hotline that they were having problems. The supervisor told me the employee shouldn’t have told me that. I asked why because she was telling me the truth. Get getting the run around and still haven’t seen anything. I quit playing myself. Not like it used to be. I also used to win a few times a month. Now nothing. We should all boycott. Submitted complaint to attorney General.

    00
    • let me tell you what happened today I put 5 bucks in the machine cause I wanted to play some slips well I put in one pick 4 slip to play for midday and evening which would cost 1 buck well the machine took my whole 5 bucks and PUT ME DOWN for 10 draws I did not mark for 5 days they took my money and did not care and did what they wanted too now I can’t play my other numbers on my other slips cause I only had 5 bucks on me what scammers I will never play the machines anymore better to go where you could cancel your ticket when they make a mistake…. they are blood suckers..

      00
  32. I won $111000 and the retailer would not give me my claim ticket. I contacted the lottery they never contacted me back

    00
  33. Within the last few months, I have noticed double, triple numbers all the time.
    What’s up with this?

    00
    • I saw winners same location same time what are the odds of that. It’s like the both said here play this number same location

      00
  34. Illinois lottery constant repeat their pick 3 and pick 4. Popular numbers are suppose to come out not all the time but some time to keep players playing. A lot of players have had it and are regulars in the Indiana lines. If you have it rigged for numbers pay out some time for satisfaction. Illinois lottery has become very very boring. Changing from one to another has gotten even worse. Some players have stopped. The store I play in on a regular basis the store had lines now no lines and store empty. Even the scratch offs are rigged. Batches of scratch offs put out in stores nothing in them I bought $100 of $10 crosswords and did not get a $10 winning ticket out of 10 tickets.
    The sales will continue to fall rapidly because we are no fools.

    00
    • if you play the scratch offs, expect to lose! I’ve played the scratch cards for 25 years and the most I’ve ever got was 5k on a 5 dollar crossword ticket that was a total mistake buy, so I thought… I walked into a gas station to pay for my gas and told the clerk to let me have three 3 dollar crossword scratchers. he misunderstood and handed me three 5 dollar tickets. I explained I hadn’t asked for what he handed me, but said I’d feel mad if I handed them back and they were big winners, so I took them… got home and the very first ticket I scratched had won me 5k.. this was also the week my mom past away… as emotion overtook me I broke down and cried with joy knowing my mom was looking down on me smiling… crossword tickets were the only thing she would play….

  35. Having spent time in California recently, I now realize how rigged the Illinois lottery games are against the players.

    In California, I had SEVERAL scratchers that were winners to the tune of $50, $100, and even $250. In Illinois, winning on scratchers is RARE.

    Another example, some California games are pari-mutuel where the jackpots jump significantly when they roll over. The Fantasy 5 in CA will jump from $67,000 to $167,000 to $350,000 then $540,000 and then to $935,000, just as an example. In Illinois, the Lucky Day moves in $50,000 increments no matter how big the jackpot gets.

    Same with the Lotto. No matter how big the jackpot gets, it only increases $250,000 per rollover.

    California also has much more substantial 2nd prizes (for 5 numbers) on the Powerball and Mega Millions games.

    All in all, these recent 3 weeks in California gave me a fresh perspective on just how rigged against the players the Illinois Lottery is.

    00
  36. The new lottery is horrible! I play daily and used to win a couple of times a year. Haven’t won once since they changed. I am quitting!

    00
    • Yea I been playing the last 8 months straight morning and night and haven’t won not one single time so trust me I feel your pain I know that you can’t win the lottery every day but you have to win sometime. Good luck hope you win soon

      00
  37. New company took over Illinois lottery and they took $100 winners away in each book on $20 tickets. No more 1 in 30 for $100. Indiana and Wisconsin are so much better!

    00
    • Totally agree! Since the new management winning is beyond difficult.Greedy greedy lottery! I’m done. They hired new management because they said they weren’t making enough money! Apparently, the politicians’ pockets weren’t full enough and ours are definitely empty. Boycott! It’s bullshit!

      00
  38. I bought 15 10.00 30.000.000 in a row No# 43 thru #59 without 1 single winner and I saved the tickets. What the hell happened to winning scratch off tickets? It’s nickle and dime with no big winners

    00
  39. CHEATING LOTTERY, Repeating the same numbers in pick 3 and pick 4 to much. Let the CUSTOMERS NUMBERS COME OUT. AFTER ALL THEY THE ONE WHO DONATE THE MONEY… Be FARE STOP CHEATING…

    00
  40. Been play 4 pick 4 numbers everyday for over 6 months straight midway and evening everyday and not one single time have any one of those 4 numbers fell out not straight and not box now I know you not gone win everyday but in 6 months something ain’t right about that.

    00
  41. Just went online to check the lottery for today and it’s 1:14 PM and they got some message saying that they have maintenance problems to come back and check later they so full of shit they trying to see what bullshit number they gone throw out today they don’t have any maintenance problems. SCAM

    00
    • Seen that last week Sunday for the LDL shutdown for maintenance issue, then all of a sudden when I went back they had 2 winners in the same location what are the odds of that

      00
  42. 6358 just fell out yesterday in the lottery and now today the same number just fell out again straight 6358 back to back 2 days in a row I told people that lottery is a scam they let numbers fall out that they want to fall out

    00
  43. Why was the lottery taken off TV? They use to show the drawings on TV that way you can see what numbers fell out now they don’t do that anymore because they have a system that see every number that was played that day so any number that they see a lot of people played they don’t let fall out they let another number fall out that fewer people played so the less money that they have to pay out. SCAM!!!

    00
  44. New company Camelot took over and changed scratch ticket odds around. Barely any more winners and everyone is complaining!

    00
  45. The scratch off tickets suck. Not big winners anymore. I been buying the 10 dll crossword game for more than 10 years, was fun and most of the time I got my money back. Now this game sucks you buy 9 tickets and only get 10 dlls back. I hate it!!!! I even bought the whole book one time and there was only a 100 dll winner ticket. I’m done playing The Illinois Lottery.

    00
  46. It’s a scam they don’t show the numbers anymore because the system knows what numbers people played so any number that a lot of people played they don’t let fall out because that’s more money they have to pay out so they let another number fall out that not too many played and that’s less money they have to give out. It’s a scam anybody can see that bring back the old way that is seen on TV every drawing

    00
  47. Illinois lottery is a scam! You cannot win anymore. Pick 3 and Pick 4 is not randomly selected. The system watches the numbers that have been played and if too many of the same number present in their system it is electronically changed in order to prevent a big payout.

    The transparency is now gone. The Illinois Lottery is more interested in cheating their customers and tracking even the smallest wins in order to collect taxes. They have deliberately removed previous number history all video and pamphlets instructions on how to win… Everything has become ambiguous, and a convenient mystery on their end now. The scratch-off ticket wins have become almost non-existent, and when you do win the most you get is your money back, or a few dollars over. It’s disgusting, and very obviously even more crooked than before; which is very telling. My suggestion is that everyone needs to quit playing for a while to reduce the amount of money they are taking from us. You cannot win anyway. So, at least we can keep our money in our pockets instead of letting them continue to make a fool out of us.

    00
  48. I was one of 3 winners for the little lotto back in 1998. At that time the little lotto jackpot was $300,000. I was only paid 56,000. If the pot was divided qually I would have won $100,000. What happened to the other $131,000. Please respond. Thanks

    00
  49. Good afternoon lottery officials. My wife and myself have been playing the Illinois lottery faithfully. For example, my wife has played the lottery number: 4444 for many years but the Illinois lottery system has pulled 4444. I think the Illinois lottery system should be programmed to pulled all players numbers. What Illinois lottery is doing is wrong and doesn’t show you appreciate the players that are playing. You need to allow the number: 1111 to be pulled.

    00
  50. The Illinois lottery is scam your chances win pick 3 or pick 4 is a dream so stop playing if I am wrong I kiss ground.

    00
  51. The Illinois lottery sucks!!! They draw the same numbers over and over again!!! If you look at other states that play the lottery there pick 3 numbers are not drawn over and over again I think it’s time for me to start playing Indiana lottery I had enough of this garbage!!!

    00
  52. Why doesn’t the lottery show the winners from each draw like they did before the bad changes?

    00
  53. I don’t like the new website! The old one was much better!! Now you have a to deposit $10 or more before you can even play!! I will not play online anymore that’s for sure!!

    00
  54. Playing online numbers are not visible to you like the old system. This is worse than the mob, they take from your wallet and you can’t see the whole transaction history, all you see is a dollar amount played and not the numbers you played; so Illinois at any time can say you didn’t play the numbers you played.. Illinois is worse than crooked. I have subscribed and not received 14 transactions and wallet was funded. I was denied wins …so after 6 years of online playing. I’m done .. You can’t even see your own history. Online web page is primitive much worse than old system.

    00
  55. Terrible, too many problems with the site to list. Can’t understand why they don’t list where winning ticket was sold. Old site would show where Lucky Day Lotto winning ticket was purchased but not anymore. Actually, how difficult is it to show this for every draw game?? Can’t imagine how much these geniuses spent on this project to end up with what we have now. Also, 6 different customer service reps and over 3 hours on the phone and still can’t register on the new site.

    00
  56. Horrible, Electronic random number draws, no balls on live Television anymore. This is a big scam to get money from hardworking people. The app sucks, I been playing since 1988, I’m done playing. I don’t trust anything computer generated.

    00
  57. I like the ease of selecting numbers for the lotto, but in general don’t like this website.
    I had selected the numbers I wanted to play, and each time I was ready to add money, after adding money, the selection wasn’t saved, so I had to start all over again.
    I don’t like the $10 minimum, where the old site was only $5, and I wasn’t allowed to use my remaining balance for the draw I was purchasing.
    I DON”T like this website, and will play in store, or not play at all once my balance is used up… that’s even if I’m allowed to use it up.

    00
  58. I cannot get into my former account where I had a balance. Now I can’t register in the new website.

    00
  59. This is BS. I purchased tickets using the app. I have one number and a mega number which I should have won $4 and the app says I am not a winner. I called the 800 number and was put on hold for over an hour with no one picking up the phone. This is a scam. Don’t use the Illinois lottery app if you don’t want to lose your money.

    00
  60. Took 30 min to get numbers put had to deposit money in account this new system is bull thinking about not playing Lottery anymore I already stop power ball and mega better fix it or I’m gone

    00
  61. Ill lotto is a scam. Daily lotto ez numbers skip as you put them into machine.

    00
  62. No money won in black neighborhood. Seem to make sure we dont win after my numbers expire I not going to play had stopped i decided to try again

    00
  63. How many times I need to register… bummer…. something so special as Apps, and here we have one million issues. Bummer……Bummer…..Bummer

    00
  64. Worst site I have ever used. Live Chat function does not work and EVERY single username is “already taken”. Even usernames like iaudjifhakjhkadhfkl358464. Excuse me? Does not work AT ALL. Hire some developers, cheapskates.

    00
  65. My name is Dre I just wanted to let everyone know that Luck Day Lotto in Illinois is a scam I spent $200 on tickets and the way I played them it’s noway I wouldn’t have had one ezmatch every ticket I played I had ezmatch on it no way not even $2 that’s why they don’t show it on TV anymore and we no it doesn’t go to the school’s for are kids like they said it would.

    00
    • I agree, before the lottery was switched to random draw, they would allow you to see whether someone won using Quick Pick or their own numbers, now they’ve taken this feature away? Why, also why is it that you can see every person that wins as little as a dollar on the Lucky Day Lotto Mega Millions Lotto and Powerball, but not the Pick 3 and Pick 4? Why that you would stop playing if you knew what I know about the Illinois Lottery and he’s probably the same, this is our money and they take it from us with shity odds and b******* promotions and then go broke like a bunch of jokes, maybe if they didn’t have to hire an entire Army of people to help them run the lottery things would go a little smoother, ffs

      00
  66. The Chicago Tribune did a study of Illinois scratch-off games which has found that many of their larger payouts are never awarded, because the games are ended prior to their issuance.

    00
  67. In general this looks like a great site except for the fact you can only play if you are in the geographical boundaries of Illinois – and they check it. So that rules me out! Very frustrating as I like their games. I guess I’m going to have to look elsewhere to find a place to play these games!

    00
  68. ON 11/25/2014 I SAMANTHA ROBINSON PLAYED THE NUMBERS 789 Boxed and They Hit The The Pay out Was SUPOSED BE 300,000 I Only Recived 40.00 and Was Told I Didnt Win The Pay Out Because I Didnt Play Straight Box I Feel Cheated Outta The Winnings The Illinos State Lotto Is a Scam!!!

    00
    • Samantha, what planet do you live on? The odds of hitting a box bet is roughly 1-in-167, and you expect a 300,000-to-1 payout?!?

      And if a straight-box bet paid out $300,000 then I would be a very wealthy man in a few days. I’d borrow $1,000 and play all 1,000 combinations of pick-three numbers…and according to your understanding, I’d win $300,000. I’d pay back the $1,000 I borrowed then play $290 on each possible combinations…which would end up paying out $87 million, with NO RISK to me.

      You grossly misunderstood the odds and payouts, I assure you.

      • Lol this is exactly right I would do the exact same thing if even if we’re a $100,000 payout. I’m researching ways to beat either the pick 4, Xtra Shot, or LDL + EZ Match. I’ve won $100 3 or 4 times on the EZ Match along with $50 3 times & $10, $5, or $2 a good 30-40 times. So the EZ Match more than pays for itself in the long run for me. The Pick 3 I figured out 3 combinations that come up way more than others so after winning it 10x with a total payout of $420 I figured I could move onto the bigger games. Pick 4 I’m sure could be beat the same way, but I’m wondering if it’s possible to skip it and figure out a formula to win the LDL or even the Extra Shot. Since you seem to be very good with numbers yourself I was wondering your thoughts H.P. Loveshaft

        • And yes Samantha sadly the most you can win on the Pick 3 possible is $1,000 since you were playing either a 0.50 or 1.00 Box. And the $1,000 would be if you played 1.00 Straight and hit all 3 numbers plus the Fireball

Illinois Lottery Exposed — Anything’s Possible?

Illinois Lottery Review

Are you a fan of Powerball, Mega Millions, and local Illinois games like Illinois Lottery Pick 3, Pick 4, and Lucky Day Lotto? Do you feel like going to the store to get your ticket is so 90s? You’re in luck! The Illinois State Lottery is one of those that make online ticket buying possible.

The Illinois Lottery website gives you a chance to play your favorite state games plus a few online exclusives.

Today, we’re about to find out if such an opportunity is worth pursuing.

Games at Illinois Lottery

Illinois Lottery games for online play span the local operator’s standard portfolio plus a couple of extras.

The games you can get your hands on through the website and the app include the much-beloved Powerball and Mega Millions, as well as Lotto, Lucky Day Lotto, Pick 3 and Pick 4.

The exclusive online offers include sweepstakes, second chance promotions, and other opportunities that will be announced periodically.

Does the website give you the same cost as going to the local gas station to get your tickets in terms of prices? If you want to play Lucky Day Lotto, you’ll have to spend one dollar buying your ticket from a shop. The same amount applies to online purchases.

Apart from the website, there are several Illinois Lottery apps, one of the official. At the time being, the official phone app doesn’t allow the buying of tickets. Rather, you can scan your Illinois Lottery numbers from a ticket you bought offline to discover if you’ve won anything.

IL Lottery: Who Can Play?

Illinois lottery games can be a lot of fun but will you have a chance to play if you don’t live in the state? Many official online ticket buying options come with geographic restrictions, making them usable only within the respective jurisdiction.

To play Illinois lotto games online, you have to register for the digital portal. All registered players need to go through a verification procedure that identifies their age. You cannot play lotteries in Illinois if you’re under 18, which applies to online ticket buying.

It’s also forbidden for players to make purchases outside of Illinois. Sorry, folks, from the rest of the US and the rest of the world! Location services are being utilized to keep you out of the ticket-buying platform if you’re not located where you need to be.

Illinois State Lottery and Claiming Your Prizes

The prize claim procedure is fairly straightforward. Winnings of under 600 dollars are automatically credited to a player’s account.

The Illinois Lottery Claims Department processes larger sums. There is a prize claim process that each individual will have to go through. All of the steps will be outlined in an email that winners will receive.

Sums credited to one’s online account can be withdrawn to a payment method of preference.

Customer Service and Who Is Behind the Illinois Lottery Official Website

Illinois State Lottery has been around since 1974. It is the entity behind the organization of local lottery games. It is also the one that runs and operates the ticket buying website.

The operator behind the lottery is called Camelot, Illinois, and this is the same entity that operates the UK National Lottery (under the name Camelot Group there).

You can rest assured that Camelot Illinois operates under state regulations that are put in place to protect players.

If you have questions or concerns, you can contact Illinois State Lottery by email and via a telephone hotline. There are also multiple offices throughout the state you can go to and discuss issues in person. Addresses are listed on the lottery website.

Other Bits and Pieces

There isn’t a lot more to discuss in connection to Illinois Lottery online. Il State Lottery doesn’t have a ton of online extras, special bonuses, or other perks for online players. While that’s a pity, it isn’t far from the standard way of doing things in the US.

One interesting opportunity we haven’t touched upon is the Il Lottery Extra Shot.

Extra Shot isn’t an online exclusive. It’s an add-on you can activate when playing Lotto. For an additional dollar per line, winners can multiply their prizes. The good news is that the Lotto Extra Shot can be activated at retail venues and through the online platform. You have to check the respective box and process the payment at the end of it all.
