Saturday August 17th 2013 â€“ The Illinois Lottery has released four new instant games this month, with top prizes ranging from Â£2,000 to $200,000.
The new games join more established instant games such as Free Gas, where players can win up to $15,000 in gas cards, and The Good Life, which gives away a top prize of $10,000 a week every week for the next 20 years.
The four new scratch off cards are:

These new games are available for purchase from any of the 8,100 Illinois Lottery retailers across the state and all profits benefit the Common School Fund and the Capital Projects Fund. Since its inception in 1974, the Illinois Lottery has contributed $18 billion towards the Common School Fund, which assists K-12 public schools and millions more to the Capital Projects Fund.
The lottery also runs a range of instant games aimed at raising money for specific organisations. These include Veterans Cash, which has raised over $10 million for Veteran Organisations in the state since 2006, and Spread the Word, which has raised over $4 million for HIV/AIDS-prevention charities since 2008.
