Illinois Lottery mulling changes to drawings

April 16, 2014, 8:07 am ET

Could this be a move to all-computerized drawings — and the death of real drawings — in Illinois?

After 20 years of perky hosts and ping pong balls, the future of live Illinois Lottery drawings on WGN-Ch.9 is up in the air.

She remembered because he played the same numbers every day — their significance, not known — and always bought a bunch of tickets with the same numbers — sometimes 20, other times 25 — among his daily lottery purchases that totaled about $100 a day.
