Powerball, Mega Millions to Halt Illinois Lottery Due to State's Inability to Pay Winners

Neither lottery would comment on the record.

Lottery spokesman Jason Schaumburg said Powerball would be suspended after the June 28 drawing, and Mega Millions would be suspended after the June 30 drawing if a budget deal isn't reached.

He would not respond to questions about whether the decision to end sales of the popular interstate games was made by the Illinois Lottery or the organizations that administer the games.

"The Multi-State Lottery Association is focused on protecting the integrity of its games and the experience of its players," association spokeswoman Anna Domoto said in a written statement to the Tribune. "Matters involving the Illinois Lottery should be directed to Illinois officials."

Officials for Mega Millions could not be reached for comment.
