I know, I know… why don’t you just go to the Illinois Lottery website and check the numbers? Yes you can, but as I am playing with Powershell and looking for something interesting to do and research, I got this idea (It came to me after I checked my ticket and realized that I did not win anything, again.) to create a script to get all info I needed from Illinois Lottery website and send it to my email. The sending email portion is not in this piece of code, but this part you can figure out on your own :) , and you can even probably send the final output thru some SMS gateway.
You can schedule it to run on daily basis. The Illinois Lottery website is updated ~one hour after the numbers are picked.

Here is the Code.

One way of doing it.
