CHICAGO, IL — September 5, 2018 — Illinois Lottery players now have the chance to multiply their winnings by five, 10, 25, 50, or 100 with new Multiplier Instant Tickets.

The new 5X, 10X®, 25X, 50X and 100X tickets offer players great prizes and exciting ways to multiply their winnings. Players can win prizes by matching their numbers to the winning numbers. If you scratch and reveal a multiplier symbol in your numbers, you win the prize shown times the multiplier shown. That means on a 100X ticket, you could win $2,000,000.  

Each ticket also offers an instant bonus prize in the amount of the multiplier. For example, players of the 100X game could win $100 instantly.

One person who isn’t excited by the Multiplier Instant Tickets is Grant the Genie (@3WishGrant), played by Leslie David Baker (Stanley from The Office). In a new social media, marketing and advertising campaign, Grant is disgruntled by the Illinois Lottery’s claim that the Multiplier Instant Ticket game is “like wishing for multiple wishes.” Grant grumpily points out, “Everyone knows you can’t do that,” as he watches players win. Creative assets from the campaign can be viewed here.

“It is fun to have a talent like Leslie be a part of our new instant game,” said Harold Mays, Interim Acting Director of the Illinois Lottery. “The new Multiplier Instant Tickets make for entertaining play, and we hope that the Grant the Genie campaign will create buzz and help ensure an immensely successful launch of the game for the ultimate benefit of education in Illinois.”

The 5X, 10X™, 25X, 50X and 100X tickets cost from $1 to $20 and can be purchased at Illinois Lottery retailers statewide. To find a retailer near you, download the Illinois Lottery app on your mobile device or visit https://www.illinoislottery.com/store-locator.
