Michigan Lottery’s IGT Contract Extension

Quick Summary

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.

The new Retailer Pro terminals might provide additional purchase options over the life of the contract.

The 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.

Quick Take

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, …

The $1 Million Super Bonus Cashword Instant Game Winner

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.

Good Luck!

Michigan Lottery Big Online Winners – June 2018

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!

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’s Cash Buster Bonus Bash

Promotion Details

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.

Quick Take

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.
