ILLINOIS — It’s no April Fool’s, someone in Illinois won $1 million through the April 1 Lotto drawing.
The winning ticket was purchased online and matched all six numbers, 10 – 19 – 25 – 30 – 33 – 37, of the Lotto Million 2 draw.
Illinois’ “Lotto” game was revamped in 2021 with the addition of two drawings, providing three total chances to become a millionaire with every $2 ticket purchased. The actual jackpot can only be won in the first draw, however the two subsequent draws come with a $1 million payout for matching all six numbers.
Lotto is only played in Illinois with drawings three times per week on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
