Did you Win?

If you purchased your ticket at an Illinois Lottery retailer, you can determine whether your ticket is a winner by scanning the barcode located at the bottom of the ticket with the scanner on the ticket checker, Illinois Lottery vending machine, or the Illinois Lottery app. Any prize of $600 or less can be redeemed immediately at any Illinois Lottery retailer, subject to onsite fund availability and the individual retailer’s preference.

If you purchased your ticket online, please check your online “My Account” section. Any prize of $600 or less will be automatically added to your online account wallet. However, if such winnings cause your total account balance to exceed $2,000, the winnings will be sent to you via check.

For tickets purchased at an Illinois Lottery retailer or online, any prize over $600 must be claimed by mail or at an Illinois Lottery Claim Center. Prizes of $10,000 or less may also be redeemed through an Illinois Lottery e-Claim. For more information please visit When You Win.
