Published January 20, 2021 • Updated on January 20, 2021 at 1:36 pm

The Illinois Lottery announced this week that two winning tickets, one for $1 million and another for $50,000 have been sold in Illinois.

One winning Powerball prize ticket was sold in the Chicago suburbs while another was sold in a town in Southern Illinois, according to a release.

The Illinois Lottery said a $50,000 winning ticket was drawn Jan. 13 from Mariano’s at 3020 Wolf Rd. in suburban Westchester. A winning ticket for $1 million was drawn Jan. 16 at the Circle K at 1300 Carbon St. in Marion, Illinois.

The Powerball jackpot sat at $730 million for the drawing Wednesday night. The high-prize drawing comes just after no one won the Mega Millions, the other lottery game offered in most of the U.S., sending that top prize up to $970 million.

Powerball prizes have been sold across Illinois over the past several months, equating to $6,660,079 since the jackpot began its roll Sept. 19, 2020.

After the Mega Millions drawing last week, a player from Illinois won $1 million for the third time in just under two weeks, a release said. The ticket was purchased at Lively Liquor at 1170 E. Higgins Rd. in Elk Grove Village.

Illinois residents who would like to participate in the Lottery can do so by purchasing tickets online at or using the Illinois Lottery app.

“When visiting a retailer, the Illinois Lottery reminds players to practice safe social distancing and adhere to the store’s safety measures,” a release said.

The Illinois Lottery reminded that the Powerball is played on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with the Mega Millions played on Friday and Tuesday.

Ratings and Reviews

Change your settings

My previous rating was a 1-star, but I have since updated it to 5-stars after some troubleshooting. I read dozens of the reviews (all 1-star) with common problems. Most, if not ALL of these problems can be solved by changing your settings either on your phone or computer (browser settings) to allow the Illinois Lottery to access your location. On the iPhone go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services. Make sure you allow the Illinois Lottery app access (if you have the app) otherwise you will have to adjust your browser settings (use Safari or google chrome) and again make sure your browser isn’t blocking the Illinois Lottery website (on your iPhone; go to Settings and scroll down to your browser). Turn off “Ask Websites Not To Track Me.” You will be able to scan tickets, your numbers will not disappear and you will be able to play multiple lines and check out. Once your (location) settings are adjusted the app and website work without a hitch. I understand how frustrating it is and I hope this helps. By law the Illinois Lottery must confirm your location in the state at the time of purchase.

P.S. the scanner will not work on any old lottery tickets only new tickets after the upgrade.


Great app never any problems with it the login is really fast and let you use all the standard security features like pin fingerprint when you’re in a hurry it gives you that last couple minutes to get your numbers and we’ve all been there before You get to the line to many people and you have like three minutes to get the numbers in before the machine shuts off ,with the app you don’t have that problem just put your numbers in and you’re good to go quick and effortless Plus it gives you the option of re-playing numbers that you’ve played before so if you played them on Monday and it’s Tuesday and you want to play if you’re playing the same numbers you can just choose replay and it will put all of them back in there for you awesome great great app I love it

Horrible Update That Still Doesn’t Function

The new version of this app is absolutely terrible; a perfect example of form over function. First, for months the app has not worked for purchasing unless logged into WiFi and it STILL DOESN’T WORK in the new version. You can no longer purchase tickets directly from your bank account, now you first have to put money into the lottery app before being able to make a purchase, which is a huge PITA. After buying tickets you now have to back out through multiple steps to get back to main page to buy tickets for a different game. The prior app was far more efficient and user friendly. I could put tickets for three different games into the cart and check out all at once, which took 30-45 seconds. Now you have to complete purchases for each game before paying back to buy for a different game. It would be faster to go to a physical location and buy the tickets than to use this worthless app. which can’t EVER verify your physical location. Instructions? Nope. Someone somewhere decided pretty pictographs and icons would be better than actually having an app that was functional and user-friendly.

This app is a complete fail with no redeeming qualities.
