About Us

Camelot Illinois is a subsidiary of Camelot Lottery Solutions, a global leader in lottery technology and operations that has run successful lotteries in Europe and the U.K. Pairing this experience with our team’s commitment to Illinois, we are reinvigorating the Illinois Lottery.

We are committed to responsibly growing the Illinois Lottery to maximize revenue for the State.

Doing Good for Illinois

Since 1985, the Illinois Lottery has contributed over $21 billion to the state’s Common School Fund to assist K-12 public schools. In FY2019 alone, the Illinois Lottery contributed $731 million to help fund public education.

It has contributed more than $4 million to specialty causes like Illinois Veterans services, the fight against breast cancer, MS research, Special Olympics, police memorials and assistance for people living with HIV/AIDS.

We are inspired by this legacy and are committed to fueling better lives and strengthening communities. Never losing sight of our responsibility, we work to put the people of Illinois first.

Camelot Illinois is focused on accelerated, responsible and sustainable growth for the Illinois Lottery. We’ll do this by:

Investing in retail to improve the experience and expand to new locations.
Building a brand that encourages lots of people to play a little.
Introducing exciting new games.
Making games accessible so that people can play anytime, anywhere on any device.
Getting to know our players, to create products they want to play.
