Illinois Lotto Prizes

There are 11 different Illinois Lotto prize tiers if you play with Extra Shot. Cash is paid to ticket holders who match just the Extra Shot number up to any fortunate player who can match all six main numbers. All but two Extra Shot prizes multiple the cash value of a player’s winning by a factor of 25. Matching the Extra Shot number nets you a fixed prize of US$5 while matching one number and the Extra Shot will win you US$10.
