Unclaimed prizes will be donated to the state’s Common School Fund at the end of the one-year period, said Amy Shanks of Camelot Illinois, which operates the Illinois lottery system.

But as the Association of Illinois School Boards points out, this publication, lottery contributions to the fund are capped at inflation-adjusted 2009 levels. This means that once that amount is reached each year, all additional lottery earnings directed to the common school fund will be diverted elsewhere.
