ILLINOIS -- The Powerball jackpot gained lots of attention last week. Now lotto fans have another reason to be excited.

The Illinois Lottery re-launched its online sales. And, it now includes the Powerball. 44 states participate in that game, but only Illinois lets you buy them from your computer.

The website also works on smart-phones and tablets. Profits from online sales go towards building bridges and roads in Illinois.
