Illinois Lottery Review

Illinois residents have several games to choose from as the local Illinois State lottery allows them to choose between several popular titles and even play online. The operator is a Northstar Lottery Group, and it has served the state for almost 40 years, with essential drawings being televised. Given the fact that it has the option of playing online, the website is frequently revamped and always kept up to date, which makes it an excellent place to check out winning Illinois lottery numbers.

Multi-Jurisdictional Drawings Offered by Lottery IL

At the top of the list stands the Mega Millions, which is offered by 44 jurisdictions and was added to the collection of games back in September 1996. Players get to choose between purchasing regular tickets, which cost one dollar or activate the Megaplier option and pay twice as much for the chance of boosting payouts. An interesting fact about the Illinois Mega Millions is that the drawings don't take place in a local studio but in Atlanta, which is also the place where Illinois Powerball numbers are drawn.

Speaking of which, this lottery is also played in 44 jurisdictions, and it was a relatively recent addition to The Illinois lottery, with the first games to be held in early 2010. Two years later, the Illinois State lottery increased the price of a ticket from $1 to $2, in complete accord with nationwide changes.

Pick 3, Pick 4 and My3 are Popular In-House Drawings

Formally known as Daily Game, Pick 3 Illinois is played by the same rules, and the draws take place every day from Monday to Saturdays. A total of three sets of balls is extracted, and each of them has digits ranging from 0 to 9, with players opting between straight and box bets.

The similarities between Pick 3 IL and Pick 4 Illinois are multiple, with the draws also following the same schedule. The difference resides in the fact that we have four sets of balls, also ranging from 0 to 9, with the payouts and prices varying. Both these titles and the My 3 offer payouts that are more frequent than other Illinois lottery games, but their amounts are also decreased.

Three Popular Lotto Versions for Illinois Lottery

The traditional Lotto game was introduced exactly 13 years ago, and the matrix was changed several times, with the definitive version being reached in 1998. The jackpot starts at $1 million and those who match all the six winning numbers in the Illinois Lotto, will receive the money in the form of an annuity.

A more recent addition is a game that goes by the name of Lucky Day Lotto, with the draws being held twice a day throughout the week. The jackpot is reset at $100,000 after someone matches the Lucky Day Lotto numbers, and given the fact that draws take place seven days a week, players have numerous opportunities to win big. State residents remember that the Illinois Lucky Day Lotto had a slightly different name a few years ago, is known by Little Lotto until it changed its name in 2012.
