Illinois is ending its contract with Northstar Lottery Group, the private vendor that operates the $2 billion-a-year state lottery — seven years early.

A spokesman says Governor Pat Quinn’s administration had “serious concerns” with Northstar’s performance.

The private lottery contractor has never reached the lofty sales promises it used to win a bid four years ago.
