Jul 21, 14 Illinois’ Lucky Day Lotto Buy One Get One Free Promotion

July 21, 2014 – For one week only, Illinois Lottery players can get two chances to win for the price of one.  The Illinois Lottery is holding a special promotion, which started yesterday, July 20, for Lucky Day Lotto players.

Getting a free ticket is simple – buy a Lucky Day Lotto ticket with EZmatch, and you’ll get a Lucky Day Lotto Quick Pick ticket for free.

Lucky Day Lotto is a straightforward Pick 5-style game in which players must match all five winning numbers drawn to win the jackpot, but can win prizes for matching as few as two of the five winning numbers.

Lucky Day Lotto tickets cost just $1, but to get a free Quick Pick during the Illinois Lottery’s promotion, players will also have to add the EZmatch option to their first ticket, which costs an extra $1.

However, that extra buck buys players a chance to win instant prizes up to $5,000.  Adding EZmatch to a ticket will randomly generate another set of five numbers, and if any of the EZmatch numbers on a ticket match the first line of numbers, it’s an instant win.

The Illinois Lottery’s promotion is scheduled to last a week, but they could run out of free tickets before then; the Lottery website says that the promotion is limited to 500,000 free tickets.  Read: “While supplies last.”

So for an extra chance at winning the Lucky Day Lotto jackpot – which has a $100,000 value for tonight’s drawing – head to your local lottery retailer and grab a Lucky Day Lotto ticket with EZmatch.

You just might win three times today, but remember: you can’t win if you don’t play.
