Originally beginning in January 2018, the
Michigan Lottery’s Daily Spin to Win Game has been extended for an additional 6 months [through March 31, 2019]. Fast Take
written about the Spin to Win Game before, it’s a great promotion that keeps us coming back every day.
The Michigan Lottery has announced the
Spooky Play 20K Giveaway promotion:
Promotion Runs: (Tuesday) October 16, 2018 – (Sunday) October 28, 2018
Entries: Earned through daily deposit and play requirements
Prizes: 8 Prizes of $400 in online free play, and one $20,000 grand prize
We’ll update the daily deposit and play requirements in the table below as the promotion runs. Quick Take
Getting something extra is always fun, and we’ve always found these promotions to be fun in the past (like
Sizzling 7s Summer Party Promotion, Cash Buster Bonus Bash, Freeway and Freeplay Promotion, …)
Complete Promotion Rules
As relayed by
Michigan Gaming, the Michigan Lottery has signed a 10 year contract extension with IGT. [ press release] Impact on the Player Community
How will this impact us as players?
Not sure. A number of the planned upgrades appear to be backend improvements – infrastructure and analytics related.
Retailer Pro terminals might provide additional purchase options over the life of the contract.
GameTouch self-service lottery vending machines look interesting. I’ve seen current models already at my local grocery store which sell only instant tickets. If new models could sell online game cards or draw tickets that might be fun.
Update 2018-07-30: The Sizzling 7s Summer Party promotion has ended, but the survey is definitely worth checking out.
The Michigan Lottery has announced a new
Sizzling 7s Summer Party promotion:
Promotion Runs: (Tuesday) July 17, 2018 – (Sunday) July 29, 2018
Entries: Earned by playing featured online games
Prizes: 700 Prizes of $70 in online free play (limit of one per player)
Drawing Date: August 1, 2018
Playing the daily game will earn 10 entries, but games that have a “7” in their name are multiplier games and earn 70 entries
A $20+ Deposit earns 70 entries
Maximum of 140 earned entries per day
Tough to make a call on the promotion without more details. We’ll be sure to update this post each day as more details are released.
Just a guess, but I would bet the promotion will highlight lucky 7 style games like
Blazing Red 7s, Shocking 7s, Triple 7s, …
Complete Rules of the Promotion
As original released by
Michigan Lottery Connect and later reported by ClickOnDetroit, a St. Clair County woman thought she had won $500 in the Super Bonus Cashword Instant game.
But when she went to cash in her ticket, the retailer couldn’t do it because the prize was too big. She later discover multiple words that she had missed and in the end realized she held a $1 million dollar winning ticket!
One of the benefits to playing online is that you’ll never miss a winner; well you might miss it but the game will automatically report all wins [the thought of throwing away a winning ticket that you missed just sounds awful]. The Michigan Lottery has released two online cashword games
Cashword and Fruity Cashword.
When the Michigan Lottery sent out their monthly winners email, I was surprised to see this entry on the list:
Rainbow Fortunes Big Winner Announcement
A lucky player scored the top $2 prize of $20,000 on only the 3rd day after
Rainbow Fortunes was released (June 26, 2018).
That’s an exciting win on a fun new game.
Best of Luck!
Starting July 1, 2018 and running through July 31, 2018 (the full month of July 2018), the Michigan Lottery is running the Cash for a Year Giveaway.
New Michigan Lottery Account Signups will receive 100 entries into the Grand Prize Drawing of $500 a week for a year on first deposit! This is in addition to the $100 (50% match) signup bonus.
Michigan Lottery’s July 2018 Cash for a Year Giveaway Quick Take
$500/week for a year (52 weeks) works out to a grand prize of $26,000. That’s a pretty substantial signup bonus.
What’s great about this promotion is that it is an extra bonus for signup. You don’t lose any of the great signup bonus (the 50% signup bonus, free games, loyalty bonus, the daily spin to win, …).
If you were thinking about signing up, now is a great time. See our complete
Michigan Lottery Online Signup Guide. Additional Details
More details can be found in this
Michigan Lottery Connect blog post.
1 entry can be earned just for signing up without a deposit
Prize Drawing will take place August 8, 2018
The Michigan Lottery emailed out that a lucky player recently won $50,000 playing
Road Trip USA.
Road Trip USA $50,000 Winner in May
Using the recently released
Big Winners Tool, we took a look at all the big winners in May.
The $50,000 Road Trip USA win (matching up to a top $2 prize [of 3]) was the biggest online win in May. Here’s the collection of other big wins over $10,000 last month:
Michigan Lottery Online Winners $10,000+ May 2018
Looks like a pretty healthy collection.
The Michigan Lottery recently emailed saying that players won over $2.1 million playing
Home Run Riches last month.
Congratulations to those Big Winners!
Starting today Friday, June 8, 2018 and running for 4 days [06/08, 06/09, 06/10, 06/11] the Michigan Lottery will offer a bonus $1 of play each day for playing the game of the day. Plus an additional $1 if you play all 4 days.
This is a fun promotion that gives us a chance to try out some new games. My guess is that we’ll see the full family of Cash Buster Games over the four days of the promotion. The Cash Buster Bonus Bash looks like it’s setup similar to the
Triple Play Bonus Days Promotion that the Michigan Lottery ran back in April.
We’ll update this post daily as the game of the day is revealed. Be sure to login on the following Wednesday to claim the bonus credit!
