Illinois Lottery adds Monday Lotto drawing

Illinois LotteryIllinois Lottery: Illinois Lottery adds Monday Lotto drawing

Illinois Lottery officials are giving players another chance at becoming a millionaire.

The lottery added a Monday Lotto drawing to its weekly schedule. That's on top of the existing Lotto drawings done on Wednesday and Saturday.

Lottery Superintendent Carolyn Adams says adding a drawing will bring in more money for Illinois schools, while providing fun for Lotto players.

The Lotto game was introduced in 1983.  Lottery officials say it has created more millionaires in Illinois than any other lottery game.

The current Lotto jackpot is worth $31 million dollars.

Can I hit this thing already!  I feel it. ILLinois is also soon offering a 20 dollar scratch off game and they just wrote me back saying the payback % will be 77.02%. Not bad, why cant that payback % exist for $5 games!

    q:

    So why do many settle for a 38%-40% payback in NY Lotto?

      I used to live on Long Island and yes NY is one of worst lottery states in America. Typically bully mentality.  Most people dont understand these things and just play cause it is there.

        Yes GUTGNT...  This stoopid Lotto has rolled over since November 04.  And, of course I've been in every single draw....  BARK!!!!!  I WANNA WIN!!

        Ya, that $20 card is already out.  Too scared to try it yet.  Although I did play some new $5 ones, but they suck too.  Just like the Red Hot 7's/Sapphire Blue 7's.  UGH!

            I've been in every Lotto draw since that jackpot was $10 million.  They never seem to sell more than $2 million worth of tickets for a particular drawing, so it's no wonder the pot keeps rolling - it has at least an 82% chance of doing so, every time.

            Store clerks in Ill all push Mega tickets, they look at you like you are crazy if you just want little lotto or lotto. 575k to 1 odds and 10.2 million to one odds are long enough for me.  I wish Illinois though would offer scratch off games that have top prizes of 100k-250k, not everything to me needs to be a million.
