The Illinois Lottery expanded their online portfolio after House Bill 3661 was signed into law. Pick 3, Pick 4 and Lucky Day draw games are now available for single purchase on Illinoislottery.com and their Illinois Lottery Official Mobile App. Previously, these games were available only through a subscription of a minimum of one week’s worth of tickets.
Jason Schaumburg has said that daily sales has increased by 20% compared with the three before the law was in place.
Rob Karr, president of the Illinois Retail Merchants Association, said the expansion would not hurt retail business because online sales reach different players and do not apply to instant games.
