Posted by wlpo on March 31, 2012

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – The Illinois lottery website stopped working for 25 minutes during sales for a record high $640 million jackpot.

Liz Leonard is the spokeswoman for the Northstar Lottery Group that runs the lottery. She says technicians were working on another area of the site which caused the problems. The website was down from about 3:30 p.m. to 3:55 p.m.

There was a notice telling visitors about the technical issues and to check back shortly.
