Online Lottery Sales
Lottery vendors are busy as players snap up tickets for the $337 million Powerball drawing Wednesday night, while officials say online lottery ticket sales have been falling short of expectations.
The jackpot for the Mega Millions lottery drawing Tuesday night has swelled to $363 million, and that has a lot of people dreaming.
Starting this Sunday, lottery players will be able to buy tickets online.
Owners of 7-Eleven stores are warning of massive layoffs to come, unless the Illinois Lottery protects them from competition from the online sales that are expected to start this year.
