Illinois Lottery offering free trolley service this Saturday in Chicago

Illinois LotteryIllinois Lottery: Illinois Lottery offering free trolley service this Saturday in Chicago

CHICAGO, IL — To promote the upcoming St. Patrick's Day Millionaire Raffle, the Illinois Lottery is offering a free trolley service for people 18 and over in Chicago this Saturday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The St. Patrick's Day Millionaire Raffle trolleys will be available free in a continuous loop at the following locations throughout the day.

  • Union Station – 200 S. Riverside Plaza
  • House of Blues – 329 N. Dearborn Street
  • Bootleggers – 13 W. Division Street
  • The Cubby Bear – 1059 W. Addison Street
  • Bootleggers – 13 W. Division Street
  • House of Blues – 329 N. Dearborn Street
  • Union Station – 200 S. Riverside Plaza

The St. Patrick's Day Millionaire Raffle provides players the chance to win one of three (3) $1 million prizes, four (4) $100,000 prizes, fifteen (15) $10,000 prizes, one hundred (100) $1,000 prizes, three thousand (3,000) $100 prizes and four thousand (4,000) $50 prizes.

St. Patrick's Day Millionaire Raffle is played like a typical raffle game with a finite number of tickets and prizes. Each $20 raffle ticket, available only at brick and mortar lottery retailers, contains a unique number generated by the Lottery terminal.

To win one of the 7,122 prizes, a player's raffle ticket must exactly match one of the 7,122 winning numbers selected in the drawing. If the Raffle does not sell out, the selection of 7,122 winners will still take place, with winners selected from the pool of sold tickets. 

St. Patrick's Day Raffle tickets will remain on sale until March 17, 2015, or until all tickets are sold — whichever comes first. The drawing will be held on March 18, 2015.

Winning raffle numbers will be available on Lottery Post's Illinois Lottery Results page..

    sales for this must have been sluggish. they need to herd you in like cattle to buy the 20.00 ticket before the big drawing on st. patrick's day. nice gesture by the lottery to provide transportation or have sales actually been sluggish.

      Marketing the lottery is an interesting business venture.

      The State spends some money to put an advertisement on a bus for the people in the city of Chicago and reimburses the  city for lost fares?

      To get the attention of lottery players!

      Will wearing green on St Patty's day help to win the lottery or is that superstition?

      Sounds like an interesting game since there are 7,122 prizes to win whether one wears green or not.

          Take care of Chicago. Guess the rest of the state doesn't matter.
