Illinois Lotto jackpot reaches $14.15M ahead of Monday drawing

The Illinois Lottery is experiencing a surge in excitement as the Lotto jackpot for Monday night's drawing has reached a whopping $14,150,000.

It's the largest Lotto jackpot in almost three years, when a lucky Illinois player scooped up $16.5 million in June 2020, Illinois Lottery officials said.

Despite two players winning $1 million each this month, the jackpot has kept on growing. In total, over 2.5 million winning Lotto tickets have been sold this year, netting players around $10.9 million in prizes.
