$100000 Powerball Ticket Sold In Dearborn Expires Soon

Illinois Lottery spokesman Jason Schaumburg tells The Chicago Sun-times (http://bit.ly/2sfpf55 ) it's another example of why Illinois needs a budget.

Acting Director Greg Smith said Thursday the lack of a budget will result in players being "denied the opportunity" to participate.

The Little River resident purchased both tickets at the Food Lion on Highway 9 in Longs for Saturday's $447 million Powerball drawing.

The Illinois Lottery has not returned calls from NBC 5 confirming the move.

The association that runs both games, the non-profit Multi-State Lottery Association (MSLA), has threatened to drop IL at the end of June unless the state at long last passes a budget, the Sun-Times reports.

Several lottery games could be on the way out in IL.

Mr. McKenna's concern was that some lottery ticket revenue goes to fund education, and IL "needs that money for the children".

He says the budget stalemate that's now threatening to stretch into its third year is merely representative of the political and social problems that plague the state.

"If we didn't have the Powerball or Mega Millions our sales will definitely go down", according to Chelsea Ferguson, who works at a gas station/convenience store in Maryville. Mega Millions is run by a consortium of lotteries and defers questions to state officials.
