We have all been there when it comes to purchasing a lottery ticket that leads to no prize. But, the Michigan Lottery has a way to help lift your spirits.
What if you could play something else for free since you purchased a specific ticket? Below you will see how Second Chance games work and what you can do to unlock them.
What are Second Chance Games?
The Michigan Lottery offers Second Chance games, which are online-only, and players have an opportunity to earn in-store coupons or entries into drawings that occur weekly for $100 to be claimed with in-store instant game tickets.
If you have a Michigan Lottery account, then you can play these games online if your ticket is not a winner. These have to be in-store tickets, and you cannot win anything on the ticket to be eligible.
There are a variety of ways to submit your non-winning tickets. You can check out the Second Chance Games website or locate the option in the Bingo, Cashword, or Wild Time apps.
How to Play and Eligible Games
Cashword, Wild Time, and Bingo are your options for the second chance games. In order to be eligible to play them, you have to meet the requirements above and have previously purchased a game that is currently on the list for those specific games.
Cashword is similar to puzzle games, where you have to reveal your letters and try to find matches. If you happen to pair up a certain amount of letters to form words, then you win.
