Huge Jackpots Drive Record Illinois Lotto Sales
(Springfield, IL) — A lot of people wanted to win two-billion-dollars. Illinois Lottery officials say last month’s record breaking Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots drove record breaking ticket sales. The Lottery’s Jason Schaumburg says players bought up 345-million-dollars worth of tickets in October. The last time sales were anywhere near that mark was January of 2016, when the Powerball Jackpot hit one-and-a-half-billion-dollars.
