The state of Illinois is an interesting one. Chicago’s population pulls a lot of weight in the state as you can imagine and the city’s proximity to Indiana and Wisconsin has had lasting effects on the entire state of Illinois. For instance, Indiana and Wisconsin have allowed for large lottery games while Illinois did not. However, once the state realized how much money they were losing as lottery players crossed the state lines, they quickly expanded.
Now, the Illinois Lottery is one of the nation’s biggest and provides every major lottery game in the market. Mega Millions, Lotto, Powerball, Lucky Day Lotto, Pick 3, Pick 4 and on and on. There are midday drawings, there are drawings in the evening. All the expansion has paid off for the state as well as the players as in 2017, an Illinois resident won $393 million from Mega Millions.
