ILLINOIS LOTTERY TO RESUME WINNER PAYMENTS
January 3, 2016
Today, Governor Bruce Rauner signed SB 2039, giving the Illinois Lottery legal authority to resume all prize payouts. 

“I want to thank Governor Rauner and the General Assembly for this legislative accomplishment. It allows the Illinois Lottery to fully return to the business of supporting education, capital projects, and select charitable causes throughout the state,” said Acting Director B.R. Lane. “We are excited to be back and look forward to a revitalized experience for our players.”

Since July 1, 2015, some Illinois Lottery winners experienced payment delays, as the Lottery has not had the legal authority to disburse winnings due to the budget impasse in Springfield. Claims of prizes under $600 remained unimpeded, and were collected from the 8,000 Illinois Lottery retailers statewide. Legally mandated transfers to the Common School Fund were also unaffected.

Winners who have already submitted claims will have their paperwork processed in the order it was received. The Lottery expects the processing of new claims to begin the week of December 14th, once funds are transferred to the Department’s accounts. Winning tickets can be claimed at any Lottery Claim Center, found at illinoislottery.com. As always, prizes under $600 can continue to be claimed at Lottery retailers across Illinois.
