Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

20 ILCS 1605/7.15

    (20 ILCS 1605/7.15)
    Sec. 7.15. Verification for Internet program; security for Internet lottery accounts. The Department must establish a procedure to verify that an individual is 18 years of age or older and that the sale of lottery tickets on the Internet is limited to transactions that are initiated and received or otherwise made exclusively within the State of Illinois, unless the federal Department of Justice indicates that it is legal for the transactions to originate in states other than Illinois. An individual must satisfy the verification procedure before he or she may establish one Internet lottery account and purchase lottery tickets or shares through the Internet pilot program. By rule, the Department shall establish funding procedures for Internet lottery accounts and shall provide a mechanism to prevent the unauthorized use of Internet lottery accounts. If any participant in the pilot program violates any provisions of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly or rule established by the Department, the participant's winnings shall be forfeited. Such forfeited winnings shall be deposited in the Common School Fund.
