A Flint man, who chose to remain anonymous, is $2 million richer. He did so by playing Michigan Lottery’s $2,000,000 Jackpot Instant Win Game.
The 65-year-old decided to give the game another try after not playing for some time. The man could not remember exactly why he stopped playing the Instant Win Game, but thought to himself, “why not,” and purchased a ticket. That is some pretty good luck right there.
Top Prize: $2,000,000
Price: $20.00 per game
Overall Odds: 1 in 3.48
This game has two separate winning games in one if you want to think of it that way. The rules for each game are slightly different but not by much. The first step is to purchase your ticket.
For the first game, a player has to match the winning numbers on their ticket to numbers on the card. Match any of those, and they win the prize shown below the number. If you get a “Money bag” symbol, you will win a $100 prize automatically.
For game 2, you have to match your numbers to the ones shown for the winning numbers to win the prize shown below that number. If you happen to get a “5X” multiplier symbol, you recoup 5X the prize shown below that symbol.
Also, if you get a “10X” multiplier symbol, you will win 10X the prize shown below that particular symbol. Get a “20X” multiplier symbol, and win 20X the prize shown below that symbol too.
Finally, if you see a Cash Spot, you are in luck. Uncover the “Cash Stack” symbol in any of the spots, and you will win a prize for that cash spot instantly.
The following are the prize amounts for this game:
The overall odds of winning a single prize for this game is 1 in 3.48. Generally, if you want to increase your chances of winning such a massive grand prize, then you can purchase another ticket. The grand prize is always $2 million, but other prizes do have the potential to be multiplied.
With purchasing another ticket, you need to keep in mind the cost of it, which is $20. That may not sound like a lot at first, but if you do this often, your bankroll might need to be checked. As always, play smart and within your means.
On the bright side, the 65-year-old man from Flint has shown that anybody is just one ticket away from life-changing money.
