I'm trying to figure out the % on just matching 4, or 5 numbers of the IL state lottery?
Let's say the Pot is 10 million and you match 4 how much do you get do you get a flat rate? Or do you split it among other people who match 4, lets just say for example 100 people match 4?

I gave "Thumbs Up" too quickly this time.
It's actually a parimutuel payout for 4 & 5 numbers if you're talking about the Illinois Lotto.
That means it varies from draw to draw, and yes - it depends on how many people hit 4 or 5 numbers, too.
The most recent drawing gave $27.50 to 4 numbers, and $814.50 to 5 numbers. By the way - that seems VERY low! Either Illinois is particularly cheap with their payouts, or there were a TON of people that hit 4 & 5 numbers compared to most drawings.Source(s): http://www.illinoislottery.com/Games/Lotto.htm http://www.illinoislottery.com/subsections/Payout....
