Illinois Lotto

On this page you can view the latest Illinois Lotto numbers from the past 10 draws, and click through to each result's payouts for a breakdown of winners and prize amounts. Results are posted right after the draw takes place on Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 9:22 PM CT.

IL Lotto has a starting jackpot of USD$2 million and no jackpot cap, which means that it can generate prizes that run into tens of millions of dollars. Tickets cost $2 and players need to match six numbers from a possible 50 in order to win the jackpot.

In addition to the Lotto draw, your numbers are automatically entered into two extra draws, Lotto Million 1 and Lotto Million 2, each of which offers a $1 million prize.

Players can also opt to play an add-on number, named Extra Shot, to increase their non-jackpot winnings by up to 25 times for $1 more per line. A number from 1 to 25 is randomly printed on your ticket - win a prize if you match the number by itself, or in addition to the Lotto numbers drawn.

The standard game has five prize tiers including the jackpot and Extra Shot offers six more prize tiers.

All Illinois Lottery statistics are derived from the Lotto Extra Shot.

This Illinois Lotto data includes all draws up to and including Monday 15th August 2022. Chronology is used to distinguish ties.

Illinois Lottery History

The Illinois Lottery was first established in July 1974 when US lotteries were restricted to the north-east and mid-west areas. The first state draw game was held in August 1974 and reached USD$1 million for the first time in October of that year.

In February 1983 the Illinois Lottery was officially formed with a six from 40 matrix to be drawn every Saturday night. In May 1984, the game changed to a six from 44 matrix in order to generate bigger jackpots. In September 1984 these changes achieved their aim when the largest lottery jackpot to date in American history was won, the sum of USD$40 million.

Wednesday draws were added to the game for a brief period between January 1986 and April 1987 and the matrix was changed to six from 54 in May 1988. The Wednesday draw was reintroduced in August 1990, and in January 1998 the matrix was scaled down to six from 48.

The matrix changed once again in April 1999 to become a six from 52 game, which remains as its current format.

Extra Shot was introduced as an add-on to the main game in November 2012, which offered players the chance to win bigger secondary-tier prizes for matching an additional number alongside their main numbers.

In July 2013 the Wednesday draw was moved to Thursday to avoid a clash with the multi-state Powerball draw. Additional innovations comprised a Monday draw and a new prize tier with the aim of building larger jackpots and increasing the value of secondary-tier prizes.
