Michigan Lottery players have a unique raffle option exclusively to the Michigan Lottery. For this raffle to begin, all 100,000 tickets have to be sold, or one year after the date and time that tickets had become available for purchase.
If either one of those options comes first, then it will follow that order. The same applies to the drawing date of the raffle, with all 100,000 tickets being sold or a year after the original drawing period.
This exciting new feature is a great way to win prizes without having to do a lot of work. You simply have the ability to sit back and wait for the potential to win prizes.
Top Prize: $100,000
Odds: 1 in 18
Ticket Cost: $10
When you are looking to purchase a ticket for the raffle, you will have two different options when it comes to how many tickets you want to purchase. Below are the methods:
Quick Pick: Choose $20 (2 tickets), $50 (5 tickets), or $100 (10 tickets) if you want to purchase larger quantities of tickets. You can also manually choose how many tickets that you would like to purchase.
Next, you would need to finalize the process by paying for your tickets. If you change your mind on how many tickets you want, simply click on continue shopping to go back to the Games Lobby.
