INTERESTED IN ENTERING THE ILLINOIS LOTTERY FOR A DISPENSARY LICENSE?
CS+X CAN HELP!
First, you are not required to provide any documentation at the time you submit your lottery application. However, if your name is drawn for a winning lottery spot, you will have only 45 calendar days from the date of notice to prove you meet the requirements of Part A and Part B described below and 60 calendar days to resolve Part C. If you can answer "yes" to all three questions below, you can enter the lottery! There are 17 regions, however you can only enter once in each region and each entry is $250. We can help with that too!
