Michigan Lottery Pays Out its First $1 Million Online Prize

The Michigan Lottery passed an important milestone this week by paying out its first $1 million online prize. The lottery began testing games on its website in August 2014, with a soft launch happening three months later and, since then, over 100,000 players have signed up to play Keno, casino games and scratch-offs like Diamond Payout which provided the debut seven-figure bounty.

The Diamond Payout scratchcard costs $20 dollars per game and requires players to match any of 25 numbers on the card to a figure in the winning line. Other games on offer to Michigan Lottery customers include Cashworld and Pot O’ Gold, which have helped towards the generation of over $4 million in revenue for the state so far.

Michigan Lottery officials claim that the number of online players is increasing on a daily basis, with options available to play games on desktop, mobile and tablet platforms. Projections suggest that the lottery’s online offering could provide $480 million for Michigan’s School Aid Fund within eight years.

There are currently no details available as to the name and location of the winner, who has made history by becoming the state’s first online lottery millionaire.

For every dollar spent on Michigan Lottery games, 30 cents is contributed to the state’s school system with $733.9 million having being donated in total in 2013. Players in Michigan can also take part in the giant multi-state lotteries like Powerball and Mega Millions, plus homegrown draw games such as Lotto 47 and Fantasy 5.
