Illinois Lottery Live
IL players can also participate in the multi-state games Mega Millions (drawn Tuesday and Friday) and Powerball (drawn Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday).
Since launching in 1974, the IL Lottery has contributed over $21 billion to K-12 schools statewide, and 25 cents out of every dollar spent playing the Lottery goes to worthy local causes - about $14 million every week. Specialty Tickets have raised upwards of $53 million since 2006 for recipients including Illinois Veterans' organizations and research on Alzheimer's, breast cancer, HIV/AIDS, and MS.
Illinois' largest ever jackpot win came in July 2022, when the colossal $1.337 billion Mega Millions jackpot was won by a single ticket holder in Des Plaines. Go to the Winners page to find out more about the biggest lottery winners in Illinois.
