Game Review – Michigan Lottery’s Instant Football Payout

Quick Review

The Michigan Lottery’s Instant Football Payout is a fun football themed online game similar in many respects to in store scratch off tickets.

Instant Football Payout includes a nice variety of play options with ticket prices ranging from $0.10 to $10 and the substantial $100,000 max prize is a real draw.  Win the game by matching 3 prizes (hidden behind 9 footballs).

Overall, the graphics are clean and the controls are easy to use.  The multiplier (which multiplies game prizes) and the high energy background music add to the excitement level!

Player Strategy

As a luck based game, I don’t know of any specific strategies that can increase your win percentage.  But if you find a strategy that works for you we would love to know!

You do have control over the ticket price.  So if today is your day, increase the ticket price to go bigger; if you want to slow things down and enjoy the ride (perhaps wait for the right opportunity) just lower the ticket price.


The Michigan Lottery’s Instant Football Payout is an exciting game that really delivers.  For me it’s the multiplier that adds the spice, definitely a go to game!

Good Luck!
