  • Select your games

    Choose set (e.g., Piggy Bank Bucks), progressive (e.g., Illinois Jackpot), or progressive suite (e.g., Quick Spot) Fast Play games.

    Set Fast Play games have a set top prize. In a progressive Fast Play game, the jackpot begins at a base minimum and grows with each ticket sold Statewide until the jackpot is won. After the jackpot is won, it immediately resets to the base minimum. In a progressive suite Fast Play game, the jackpot also begins at a base minimum and grows with each ticket sold Statewide until someone wins. The difference is that a progressive suite game has one jackpot with multiple wager amounts. The player decides how much to wager. The higher the wager, the higher the percentage that can be won.
