Record Illinois Lottery Sales Provides $762 Million To Illinois Schools

The Illinois Lottery Announces Fiscal Year 2021 Results

CHICAGO, Illinois (Sept. 16, 2021) – As most Illinois schools have headed ‘back to school’ in one form or another in the past few weeks, the Illinois Lottery is announcing returns of $762 million to the Common School Fund to support K-12 education across the state of Illinois.

“Schools across the state are facing unprecedented challenges, adjusting to both remote learning and in-person learning during a pandemic. Now more than ever, our teachers and students need resources, tools, and financial support,” said Acting Lottery Director Harold Mays.

“The Illinois Lottery, with the help of its players and retailers, generates essential funding to support education in Illinois, and I’m proud to announce returns of $762 million to the Common School Fund during the 2021 fiscal year.”

Despite the ongoing challenges faced by the pandemic, the Lottery experienced record-setting sales this fiscal year. Lottery players bought $2.2 billion worth of scratch tickets and over $1.2 billion in draw-based games.

With the addition of many new players, digital sales through the Illinois Lottery website and app doubled over the previous year and total lottery sales grew by 21%.

“Our retail network of over 7,000 stores continues to play a critical role in the Lottery’s success. With a historic Mega Millions and Powerball jackpot run in January leading to over $1.5 billion in jackpots, our retailers had their hands full keeping up with the demand for tickets,” said Mays.

During the year, Illinois Lottery players from Jo Daviess County to Alexander County won over $2.3 billion in prizes, including the largest prize claimed in Illinois since 2017 - a $56 million Mega Millions jackpot won by a lucky player in Crestwood.

In total, 52 players claimed prizes of $1 million or more during the year - that’s a new millionaire every week for a year, thanks to the Illinois Lottery!

“And our retailers are winners too, with retailers earning over $186 million in commission during the year – including a $500,000 bonus commission check to the retailer who sold the winning ticket for the $56 million Mega Millions jackpot,” said Mays.

Camelot Illinois, the private manager of the Illinois Lottery, paid tribute to key partners across the State that enabled these positive results.

“Thanks to the efforts of our retailers, the strength of our technology, and an expansion of game opportunities bringing new players on board, the Lottery delivered exceptional results for the State of Illinois,” said Keith Horton, Camelot Illinois General Manager and General Counsel.

“We’d also like to acknowledge the leadership of the team at the Governor’s Office and key State agencies for helping Illinois navigate through exceptionally challenging circumstances, providing support to residents and retailers. As a result, the Lottery was able to remain operational throughout, generating essential funding for education at a time when it is needed most.”

“With a focus on offering great games, compelling advertising, an expansive retail network, and a modern digital offering, the Illinois Lottery continues to be a stable and essential source of funding for schools and good causes across the State,” Horton added.

The 2021 Financial Year runs from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. The Lottery’s final Net Income figure for FY21 is estimated to be $779 million, which is still to be audited and confirmed. Additional funding over the amount to the Common School Fund will be returned to the Capital Projects Fund.

Full year proceeds to the state will be published later in the year. For more information, please visit

LOTTO Rheinland-Pfalz Presents Successful Results for 2020


• Total sales of 423.2 million euros

• 702,000 euros annual profit

• 196 million euros distributed to winners

• 148 million euros for the common good


KOBLENZ, Germany (September 17, 2021) -- The Koblenz-based gaming company LOTTO Rhineland-Palatinate closed 2020 with a turnover of 423.2 million euros and an annual profit of over 702,000 euros. The balance sheet profit from the annual surplus and profit carried forward amounts to a total of around 1.4 million euros. This was communicated via video conference at a balance sheet press conference.

"In the first year of the corona pandemic, we proved to be crisis-proof and reliable," said Managing Director Jürgen Häfner. The Rhineland-Palatinate luck smithy achieved total sales of 423.2 million euros in 2020, including the brokerage of sales from the sports betting ODDSET. That means an increase of 12.7 percent compared to the already very good result of the previous year. "We have consequently continued the continuous upward trend of the past few years", reported Jürgen Häfner.

New State Treaty on Gambling


“In what is still a challenging environment, Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz is continuing on its way, strengthening the tried and tested and establishing new things with a sense of proportion. As a result, the company stands for the common good-oriented gaming industry in Rhineland-Palatinate and continues to fulfill the overriding state channeling mandate,” stated the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, State Secretary Dr. Stephan Weinberg. It is therefore to be welcomed that the State Lottery Monopoly will be secured and strengthened with the State Gambling Treaty 2021, which came into force on July 1, 2021. "During his term of office as the leading block partner in the German Lotto and Totoblock, Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz set the decisive course for this state treaty," emphasized the chairman of the supervisory board.

Product development

Particularly noteworthy is the positive development of the traditional LOTTO 6aus49 with an increase in sales compared to the previous year by around 16 percent to over 200 million euros. In addition to a few jackpot phases, Häfner named the successful product change as the main reason, which has been in place since September 2020: "By strengthening all prize categories, we have further developed our long-running favorite for the future."

The Eurojackpot lottery, which is offered in 18 European countries, also increased in 2020 and rose by around 18 percent to over 80 million euros in sales in Rhineland-Palatinate. "Here, too, we benefited from the fact that there were several high jackpots over a long period of time," said Häfner.

Distribution of profits

The total profit distribution from Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz in 2020 was around 196 million euros. A total of 69 players from Rhineland-Palatinate won amounts of 100,000 euros and more last year. Nine of them even won a million euros and more. A player from Koblenz secured the highest win with 8.1 million euros in LOTTO 6aus49.

Charges for the common good

Lotto Rhineland-Palatinate was able to make an enormous contribution to the common good again in 2020: the state of Rhineland-Palatinate received almost 143 million euros from taxes and income from the organization of state lotteries. "That is around 392,000 euros every day - money without which the implementation of many projects that are fundamentally important to society as a whole would not be possible," emphasized Managing Director Jürgen Häfner. Many organizations for the common good in Rhineland-Palatinate were also winners. The revenue from the lotteries, GlücksSpirale, Sieger-Chance and BINGO! a total of around 5.2 million euros directly to numerous beneficiaries.

At GlücksSpirale, in addition to the representatives from sport (German Olympic Sports Association, German Sports Aid Foundation, State Sports Association Rhineland-Palatinate and Sporthilfe Rhineland-Palatinate Foundation), these are the Federal Working Group for Free Welfare, the German Foundation for Monument Protection, and the Rhineland-Palatinate Nature and Environment Foundation and the State Music Council of Rhineland-Palatinate. At BINGO! In addition to the Nature and Environment Foundation, this is also the Regional Development Network (ELAN).

Schafer Systems Inc.

Future-oriented sales channels

Lotto Rhineland-Palatinate proved to be stable in the past year primarily through the two central pillars of its sales success: the nationwide sales network with over 900 retail outlets as well as the further strengthening of its own Internet offer.

Terrestrial sales remain the strongest pillar of sales. Around 80 percent of the stakes are made there. "Our acceptance points make an enormous contribution to channeling in rural areas," said Jürgen Häfner, who rightly pointed out that Lotto Rhineland-Palatinate is the largest chain store in the state and is therefore represented in almost every fourth local community.

The rising trend in the Internet offer continued in 2020. Almost 32.6 million euros in stakes were generated via the website - an increase of 32 percent compared to the previous year. A total of 200,000 customers have now registered for the Internet game with Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz.

"We know about the importance of the Internet area, especially about the importance of placing bets on mobile devices, and have taken numerous structural measures here," explains Jürgen Häfner.

"Above all, it is important to the company to coordinate the terrestrial offerings and the Internet offerings in such a way that all people who are determined to play can alternatively choose which distribution channel they would ideally use in which life situation," added the chairman of the supervisory board, Dr. Stephan Weinberg.

Help in the flood disaster

Managing Director Jürgen Häfner also briefly discussed the current situation in the current year at the balance sheet press conference. The flood disaster in the Ahr valley and the Eifel also deprived retailers of their business base. Here, the company was able to ensure that most acceptance points can continue their operations through unbureaucratic and fast assistance.

New York Jets Join AGA’s Have A Game Plan® Bet Responsibly™ Campaign

Team Will Promote Responsible Sports Betting In-Stadium and Through Digital Channels

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 17, 2021) – Ahead of Responsible Gaming Education Week 2021, the New York Jets have joined the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Have A Game Plan® Bet Responsibly™ public service campaign. The Jets will encourage their fans to “Know When to Huddle Up” through in-stadium and digital content that promote responsible sports wagering.

“The fan experience is at the heart of everything we do, and as legal sports betting expands, we want to ensure Jets fans are empowered to wager responsibly,” said New York Jets Vice President, Business Development & Ventures Jeff Fernandez. “We are proud to partner with the AGA on this important initiative.”


Recent AGA research found that due to expanded sports betting legalization and high fan enthusiasm for the season, a record 45.2 million Americans (18%) will wager on this year’s NFL season, a 36% increase from the 2020 NFL season. Among NFL fans, 37 percent plan to wager on the 2021 NFL season, including 47 percent of self-described avid NFL fans.

“Leadership from professional sports teams like the Jets is critical to not only ensuring fans understand how to wager responsibly, but also getting sports betting right,” said AGA Senior Vice President Casey Clark. “We’re thrilled to welcome the team as a partner and value their commitment to prioritizing responsible sports betting education for their loyal fanbase.”

The AGA launched Have A Game Plan in late 2019 to educate sports fans on the principles of responsible sports betting. The Jets join campaign partners DraftKings, FanDuel, Monumental Sports and Entertainment, NASCAR, NHL, PGA TOUR, SeventySix Capital, Sightline Payments, Sinclair Broadcast Group, UFC, Vegas Golden Knights, and the Washington Football Team.

The New York Jets were an early adopter of gaming partnerships after the State of New Jersey approved legalized sports betting in June 2018. The Jets have a long-standing relationship with BetMGM and have recently added new sports betting partnerships with Fubo Sportsbook and WynnBet.

AGA’s Responsible Gaming Education Week, from September 19-25, educates consumers on responsible game play and highlights responsible gaming’s central role in gaming and sports betting.

Sports betting is currently legal and operational in 26 states and the District of Columbia. During the NFL season, five additional states are expected to launch legal markets. The NFL has a long-standing partnership with the National Council on Problem Gambling.

Sazka Has Become Part of the Responsible Gaming Project

PRAGUE, Czech Republic (September 17, 2021) – On Thursday, September 16, a press conference was held at the Kaiserstein Palace, at which the development of a tool for early detection of high-risk gamblers was presented through the Institute for Gambling Regulation (IPRH). 35 companies across the lottery market, led by Sazka, are involved in the project called Responsible Gaming.


 “I am very pleased that Sazka is part of the Responsible Gaming project and I am pleased that we have been involved in it throughout the Czech lottery and gambling market. This is an important milestone across the market, where customer protection becomes a priority. I believe that its implementation will be successful, and thanks to it we will be able to strengthen risk prevention and our business will be perceived as an entertainment industry, not a gambling industry,” said Aleš Veselý, CEO of Sazka.

Information about the project

The Responsible Gaming project aims to support the prevention and prevention of risky gambling, educate the general public about responsible gaming, cooperate with professional organizations in education and research, detect potentially risky players in a timely manner and effectively address assistance. Its basic pillars include operators’ responsible behavior commitments, responsible advertising, a tool for early detection of high-risk players, a week of responsible gaming, a training center or a website.

The Institute for Gambling Regulation, which represents 95% of the legal gambling market, has in recent months, in cooperation with experts and gambling operators, prepared a self-regulatory project that goes beyond current legal regulation to unify, develop and develop coordinate.
