Starting Sunday, you won’t have to wait in line to pick your numbers for Tuesday’s $356 million dollar Mega Millions Jackpot.

Illinois is the first state where you can buy a lottery ticket from the comfort of your home.

Online sales could attract a million new players, boosting revenue for Illinois Public Schools.

To play online, you’ll have to register your social security number and home address to confirm in-state residency.
