Raffle tickets are sold in sequential order throughout the state beginning with ticket number 0000001 and ending with ticket number 1000000. To win one of the raffle prizes, a player’s raffle ticket must exactly match one winning numbers selected.
Winners will need to claim their prize at one of five Illinois Lottery Claim Centers located in Chicago, Des Plaines, Fairview Heights, Rockford or Springfield. Winning raffle numbers will be available on the Illinois Lottery’s website at www.illinoislottery.com after each drawing.
