What is the Illinois Lotto?
The Illinois Lotto starts with a top prize of US$2 million and can roll over indefinitely, leading to huge jackpots. The largest Illinois Lotto jackpot ever won was in a staggering amount of US$69.9 million and was awarded on the 15th of April 1989.
Illinois Lotto draws currently take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 21.22 CST.
Players pay US$1 for a base game and pick six numbers from 1 to 52 or have them randomly selected on their behalf by using the Quick Pick option. For an extra US$1 players can unlock the Extra Shot feature, an extra randomly-generated number that could dramatically increase the value of any non-jackpot prizes that a player may win.
To win the jackpot, ticket holders must match all six main numbers drawn.
But – It doesn’t stop there! The Illinois Lotto offers both in-house and instant games.

Players choose 5 of 75 white balls, and a sixth number (the “Mega Ball”) from a second pool, of 15 numbers.
Mega Millions tickets are currently sold in 44 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
There are 11 different Illinois Lotto prize tiers if players play with Extra Shot. Cash will be paid out to ticket holders who match just the Extra Shot number up to matching all six main numbers.
The Illinois Lotto jackpot starts at US$2 million and grows by US$250,000 each time it rolls over, and there’s no limit on how high it can climb!
