The Illinois Lottery was established on July 1, 1974. Back then Illinois was the only state lottery to have its drawings televised nationwide. Initially, the lottery sold “passive” games through weekly drawings. In 1982, the Illinois Lottery introduced Pick 4, with drawings held only on Tuesdays and Fridays. With the introduction of Pick 4, the sales of the Daily Games increased by 52% over the 1981 sales. On March 9, 1985, the Pick 4 drawings were increased to seven days per week. Since then, the Illinois Pick 4 plus FIREBALL, has been producing a notable amount of winners.
