Name Change For Illinois Lottery Game

CHICAGO (AP) — Say goodbye to Little Lotto and hello to Lucky Day Lotto.

The Illinois Lottery is changing the name of the popular pick-five game this weekend to Lucky Day Lotto. The Illinois Lottery says in a news release that they’ve decided “there’s nothing little” about the game. Prizes for the game start at $100,000 and drawings are every day. Lottery officials say there are more than 35,000 winners every day or 200,000 winners a week.

The Illinois Lottery is planning an advertising campaign throughout the month of May about Lucky Day Lotto.
