About the Illinois Lottery

Illinois Scenery

The Illinois Lottery first came about on July 1, 1974. Tickets went on sale on July 30. The very first Illinois Lottery draw took place on August 8 that year, and the first instant win games came about in 1975.

Ten years later in 1985, the Lottery started allocating profits from ticket sales to the Common School Fund and was the very first state to offer residents the opportunity to purchase lottery tickets online. These days, the Illinois Lottery plows the funds raised from ticket sales into several special causes, such as the Capital Projects fund and the aforementioned Common School Fund.

Four instant win games in the state are also dedicated to raising funds for veterans, cancer research, people living with HIV/AIDS, and multiple sclerosis research. Players need to be at least 18 years old to play and win lottery prizes, and if you want to play online, you must be an Illinois resident.

Illinois Lottery FAQS

1. How do I claim my winnings in Illinois?

You can claim your Illinois Lottery winnings with a value lower than $600 at any registered lottery retailer. You can also claim your winnings at a Lottery Claims Center, or you can mail the ticket to the Lottery's Springfield HQ once you've signed the back of it.

Always consult with a lawyer or financial advisor before claiming any big lottery prize, as they can be of great assistance navigating the claim process.


2. Does the Illinois Lottery release my name if I win a jackpot or big prize?

Yes. The lottery publishes the winner's names, home city, and the amount they won. Contact details, such as addresses and telephone numbers are never published.

We do, however, suggest that you consult with a lawyer before claiming any big lottery winnings, as it may be possible to retain your anonymity by claiming your prize through a trust.


3. Are my Illinois lottery winnings taxed?

Yes. You need to pay both state and federal taxes on lottery winnings, so it's always a good idea to contact a financial planner or tax expert when you win the lottery. See our Tax Information section for more details.
