Illinois Lottery Giving Away Free Chances To Win Cash With Fast Play Scan-N-Play

May 13th, 2022

CHICAGO, May 13, 2022 – The Illinois Lottery is celebrating the launch of Fast Play Scan-N-Play by giving players a chance to grab free tickets!

On Tuesday, May 17, players will be given the chance to hop in the Illinois Lottery “money machine,” where they’ll have five seconds to grab as many Fast Play tickets as they can. The faster a player can catch tickets, the more fast fun they’ll have!

The live exhibition will take place at Foodsmart — 2901 W. Armitage in Chicago —  from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

Fast Play Scan-N-Play is the newest way to play with the Illinois Lottery. In order to try Scan-N-Play, players buy a physical Fast Play ticket in retail and then scan that ticket via the Illinois Lottery app, where the game will come to life onscreen revealing the prize outcome.

Fast Play Scan-N-Play is available at every Illinois Lottery retail store across the State.
