(20 ILCS 1605/7.15)
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.
