About the Michigan Lottery

Michigan MI Lottery logo

The Michigan Lottery officially began in November 1972 as a way of generating funding for Michigan’s public school system. Since then, the Michigan Lottery has contributed over $21.4 Billion to that cause.

Michigan Lottery Tickets

Michigan Lottery tickets can be purchased from any authorized retailer within the state of Michigan, as well as over the internet for certain games. All winning tickets are valid for up to a year after the official draw, and winners must claim their prize within that time frame.

Can I buy MI Lottery tickets online?

Yes, but only for certain games. You can play Fantasy 5 and Lotto 47 online, as well as Powerball, Mega Millions, Keno and other instant games. Just sign up for a free Michigan Lottery account to start playing. Accepted payment options include all major credit cards.

Michigan Lottery Games and Drawing Schedule

Lotto 47

For players looking to win big, Lotto 47 is sure to please. Jackpots start at a cool $1 million and continue to grow until someone wins. Rules are simple, too. Just pick 6 numbers and match them all to take home the grand prize. With the EZmatch feature, players have even more chances of winning. Drawings for Lotto 47 are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 PM EST.

Lucky For Life

“For Life” lottery games are always a crowd favorite, and Michigan’s Lucky For Life is no exception. With a grand prize of $1,000 per day for life, it’s easy to see why. To win the top prize, players must match 5 numbers plus an additional Lucky Ball. Lucky For Life drawings are held every Monday and Thursday at 10:35 PM EST.

Fantasy 5

Fantasy 5 is like a miniature version of Lotto 47. Jackpots are smaller, starting at $100,000; and only 5 numbers come into play. Drawings are held daily at 7:29 PM EST.

Fantasy 5 also features the EZmatch feature, giving players the opportunity to win instant prizes of up to $500.

Daily 3

Win up to $500 in Daily 3. Players can play with different bet types (straight, box, wheel, 2-way, and 1-off) and prizes are determined by which type they choose. To play, just pick 3 single-digit numbers from 0 to 9, choose your bet type, and wait for the draw. Drawings are held daily – with the midday drawing at 12:59 PM EST, and the evening drawing at 7:29 PM EST.

Daily 4

In Daily 4, game mechanics are very much similar to Daily 3 – except that instead of choosing 3 numbers, players have to choose 4. That also means that prizes are bigger, with the top prize at a not-too-shabby $5,000. Drawings for Daily 4  are also held twice daily at 12:59 PM and 7:29 PM EST.

Club Keno

If you’re familiar with Keno, then you should feel right at home with Michigan Lottery’s Club Keno. You can play anywhere from 1 to 10 numbers – giving you more control over your odds of winning. Naturally, the more numbers you play, the more difficult it becomes to match them all.

Club Keno also features three additional game modes: Extra, Kicker, and the Jack. They all require you to add more to your wager, but provide additional ways of increasing your chances of winning, as well as any prizes you might win. Drawings are held everyday, every few minutes starting at 6:00 AM to 1:59 AM EST.

Keno

Interestingly, Michigan Lottery offers a second Keno game, but with very different mechanics. It’s actually more similar to traditional lottery games, wherein players must pick 10 numbers from 1 to 80, and match them all to snatch the top prize of $250,000. Drawings take place daily at 7:29 PM EST.

Poker Lotto

An interesting cross between lottery and Poker, Poker Lotto is a fun alternative that all players can enjoy. To play, you are automatically “dealt” a random hand of five cards from a standard 52-card deck. These cards are printed on your ticket and if you manage to form a winning Poker hand, you can win $5,000 instantly.

You also get another shot at winning  up to $100,000 when the draw comes, should you match all 5 of your cards with those of the official draw. Drawings are held daily at 7:29 PM EST.

Notable Winners of Michigan Lotteries

Below are some of the most notable winners in the Michigan Lottery’s recent history:

  • A man from Montcalm County who chose to remain anonymous, won the second-biggest jackpot in Lotto 47’s history. He won $22.59 million on February 18, 2017. The current record is $23.6 million from all the way back in March 2008.
  • A man from Bay County who also remained anonymous, was one of two winners of the $9.64 million jackpot for the Lotto 47 drawing in October 10, 2018 draw. The interesting bit? He had actually lost his winning ticket by accidentally throwing it out in the trash. Luckily, he found it dumpster diving and was able to claim his share of the prize.
