IL Lottery numbers winning
What changes are being made to Lotto?
The Lotto game improvements will provide higher payouts of non-jackpot winnings. In addition, Lotto will add an additional "match 2" prize level and the Wednesday draw day is moving to Thursday. The price of Lotto will change to $1 for 1 game panel instead of 2 starting July 14, 2013.
Why did the price of Lotto change?
The price of Lotto is increasing to help build larger jackpots and to award larger prizes within prior prize categories. With the multistate games, like Powerball® and Mega Millions®, offering jackpots in excess of $100 million every 6-8 weeks, the Illinois Lottery decided to restructure Lotto with Extra Shot’s prize table to award new prizes and larger average prizes per category. Key changes are a new "match 2" prize plus larger average prizes for matching one to six numbers and matching Extra Shot.

Why is the Illinois Lottery changing the Wednesday draw to Thursday?
Currently the Illinois Lottery doesn’t have a large jackpot drawing offered on Thursday. Having the drawing on Thursday will spotlight Lotto with Extra Shot™ and remove it from the shadows of our multistate games. This change gives players a variety of days to play large jackpot games.
How do I play all my numbers on one ticket if I only get one board?
You can still play your favorite numbers by using the additional boards on the play slip.
Can I use the same play slip?
No, you will need to use the new play slips which will be in your local lottery retailer prior to the change.
Did the Lotto prize matrix change?
Yes, we changed the prize matrix and players are able to win more for matching one to six numbers and matching Extra Shot. In addition, Lotto will add an additional "match 2" prize level to give players a new chance to win.
