And please let us know in the comments if you see something we’ve missed!
In an interview posted on
la fleur’s Shannon DeHaven of the Michigan Lottery made a few comments that might be interesting to Michigan Lottery players.
Two new games are in the pipeline: Prince of Hearts (a new entry to the Royal Family of Games [
Queen of Diamonds, King of Clubs]) and VIP Platinum (a new entry to the VIP Family of Games [ VIP Black, VIP Gold]).
Queen of Diamonds was also named the top performing eInstant game in the world for the 2017 fiscal year.
As relayed by
Michigan Gaming, the Michigan Lottery has signed a 4 year contract extension with NeoPollard (the iLottery platform operator) [ press release]. Impact on the Player Community
Not sure what the future holds. But NeoPollard has provided a great platform for players over the last few years.
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.

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!
