That's right, Illinois is so financially screwed it steals money from the lottery to pay anyone but the winners:

Quote:Lottery winners in Illinois may have hit the jackpot - but they have not been paid.
The state recently announced that it was not paying out any winnings worth more than $600 until its budget crisis is resolved - but it's still running TV ads promoting the lottery.
An attorney representing some of the winners, Tom Zimmerman, has said there is a staggering $288 million in winnings waiting to be paid out.

Looks like Illinois is run by some corrupt people?

Chicago, Detroit come to mind.

The Illinois Lottery announced Tuesday that, without a budget or any special legislation, it won't be able to pay anyone winning $25,000 or more come July 1. If that sounds familiar, it's because the state did the same thing to players for months in late 2015 — spurring lawsuits and an estimated $70 million in lost sales — before the General Assembly passed a special bill that allowed the agency to pay out the nearly 3,900 stacked-up claims.

Illinois, just keep it on your pocket.
When life knocks you flat on your face roll over and look at the stars.
