I got confirmation from the Illinois Lottery that the Lucky Day Lotto game (formerly called Little Lotto) will be adding a midday drawing in June.

The midday drawing will happen at 12:40 pm CDT every day, and the evening drawing will remain at 9:22 pm CDT.

The midday and evening drawings will share the same rolling jackpot, so that means the jackpot will increase twice a day. 

As far as I know, this will be the first game to share a jackpot between midday and evening drawings.  It will also present an interesting challenge when I try to publish that info on the Illinois Lottery Results page because the next jackpot listed won't be known until the day's other drawing takes place.  For example, the next midday jackpot cannot be determined (will have to remain as "pending") until the evening drawing takes place.

Anyway, what do you Illinois players think about the upcoming midday draws?

    Lucky Day Lotto looks a lot like Ohio's Rolling Cash5, if they end up selling twice as many tickets with the change I could see Ohio wanting to add a midday drawing for RC5 too.

          Depends on the length of your workout.  Players who follow the game and like to do a workout before playing will adjust their workouts accordingly.

            Thanks for the info. I got behind on my Lucky Day Lotto charts and was trying to catch up, but I won't bother with it now since there will be two drawings a day. Instead, I'll gather data for the regular Lotto game and start playing that from now on.

                I like the idea if for no other reason that it will bump up the jackpot twice as fast.  I don't play until the jackpot matches the odds, which is at $575k, so any way to get there faster will allow me more plays.  Otherwise it can take a week or longer for it to get from $100k to $575k.

                  I'm not discounting it entirely but at first glance, I'm not in favor of it.  I had a lower JP level set before I'd play but have recently been thinking of trapping instead.  Have not decided how to approach this yet as I don't typically set numbers until the evening.  We'll see how it shakes out but I don't think the midday draw is going to pull much action.  Will be curious to see how the increments work for the rolls.

                  I remain, patiently optimistic

                    Looks like another marketing move by Northstar to turn a $1 affair into a $2 affair. Factor in Ez Match and what was a $1 ticket becomes a $4 ticket.

                    This seems to be a twist on Red Game / Green Game Keno. (Casino keno)

                    Todd, I see what you mean about posting the the jackpots, guess a midday to an evening rollover is a new situation.

                    Ignatius,

                    I track this game all the time, sounds like you don't get to play too often. The jackpot is rarely over $575,000. There is a Jackpot History on the results page and it doesn't show any jackpot of $575 going back to April 3. That's only as far back as I went, 2 pages of 107. So much for it building up in one week. But it is entertaining when people post things like that on a site where so much data is readily available.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    Lep

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      Anyway, what do you Illinois players think about the upcoming midday draws?

                      Got my ticket this morning it shows midday on ticket this is the game I mostly play, I play 10.00 every day now its gonna be 20.00 the ez match in my opinion is a waste, the odds of winning 500.00 is 1: 210,000 give me a break, take that dollar buy a scratch off odds way better. Illinois lottery is now selling 4th of July Raffle it sells for 10.00 a ticket this gets you in draws starting June 6 to July 4 weekly prizes for the first 4 weekly draws are as follows 1 Prize 500,000.00 10 Prizes of 10,000.00 1000 prizes of 100.00 on July 4 prizes will be 2 1,000,000.00 prizes 10 10,000.00 and 1764 100.00 prizes over all odds est. 1: 172 and the way I understand it your ticket is good for all draws so if you win in first week and cash it you will get an exchange ticket with same number good for rest of draws there are 829,563 tickets remaining. great post Todd, and for what I think about the midday draw? Im gonna try  it for a while then I might just limit myself to evening draw....TBD....Good Luck Everyone US Flag

                        First ever midday draw: 3-9-14-20-31

                        I played one ticket, $10 for 2 draws to see what the playslip looks like.  Only change is at the bottom:

                        2 draw(s)

                        06/02/2013 MID thru 06/02/2013 EVE

                        Total $20.00

                         

                        Illinois Lottery Website notes a rollover and new jackpot at $150,000.  I was curious about the rollover amount and this is in line with the usual $50K-$75K increase when it was just drawn 1x per day.

                        Here's to hoping for better numbers tonight.

                        I remain, patiently optimistic

                          lotteryforever,

                          I agree totally about the Ezmatch being a trap considering the odds and the payoff. I'd throw the extra buck at the jackpot when it's high enough.

                          I played a ticket this morning at a grocery store. I thought it would be like My3, Pick3 and Pick4, Midday, Evening or Both. So O asked the clerk for both and she told me Lucky Day Lotto was a one draw a day game, evenings. I told her that the Midday started today and I got the looking at a Martian look from her. So I told her OK, just give me QP. She runs the ticket and it says:

                          Lucky Day Lotto  MID

                          "You gotta love it"

                          Linda Kollmeier

                          PS,

                          Went back later and scanned the ticket,

                          Congratulations You Won $1.

                            States are looking for ways to increase revenue. Charging $2 a ticket is one way. Increasing the number of draws is another. This fall Texas is going to have 4 P3 and P4 draws a day, up from 2 a day. They introduced the All or Nothing game last year at $2 a ticket, 4 draws a day.

                            Starting to get a little crazy. LOL.

                            CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                            A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                              Congrats on the win coin toss, yea most store clerks are lost. I cashed in a dollar also, I did notice the number 14 repeated wonder if we will see more repeats, seems like less time between draws numbers tend to repeat more like p3 p4 something to watch out for Good luck.....Lep
