Illinois lottery officials hope some changes will get people more interested in the classic Lotto game.
Lotto sales… and jackpots… have gotten smaller as more people turn their attention and dollars to multi-state games with bigger prizes, like Powerball and Mega Millions.
The revised Lotto game, starting July 14th, will still be played the same way, but will now cost $1 for each set of numbers.
The higher price is expected to lead to bigger jackpots.
Starting next week, Lotto drawings will now also be held three times a week on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
