Want some tips on playing the Illinois Lottery?

Our experts are always happy to share tips to improve you chances of winning.

If you have any tips of your own we should know about, drop us a line!

TIP #1: TALK TO LOTTERY CASHIERS

If buying instant tickets, ask the cashier about any big winners lately. If yes, steer clear of those games. Most scratch off rolls will have at least one big winner and if someone else just claimed the prize, it’s not likely to hit big again.

TIP #2: USE THE ENTIRE DRAW PLAY SLIP

When playing drawing games with a large selection of numbers, select numbers from the entire play slip. Players often only play birthdays or anniversaries. Doing this limits your numbers to just 1 to 31 instead of using the whole play slip.

TIP #3: CHECK INSTANT TICKETS FOR TAMPERING

Players should inspect their instant game tickets to make sure the latex covering on the play area is intact. Do not accept a ticket if any part of the latex has been removed.

TIP #4: PLAN AHEAD

Lottery winners in Illinois are considered public record so you cannot remain anonymous. Winners of $250,000 or more can request their information to be withheld; however, your information is still available upon a Freedom of Information Act request. Plan ahead since people will find out your identity.

About the Illinois Lottery

Before many other states had begun a lottery, the Illinois Lottery became a household name as its nightly drawings were televised nationwide via WGN-TV’s national superstation feed.

The nearly 50-year-old Lottery generates essential funding for the State of Illinois. Since 1985, profits have gone to the Common School Fund to assist K-12 public schools. Other Specialty Instant Games generate money for causes such as Special Olympics and veterans’ support.
