Michigan Lottery Announces New Rewards Program for Players

LANSING, Mich., Sept. 11, 2017 – The Michigan Lottery is developing a new player rewards program that will make it easier for players to participate and earn free play. The new program is expected to begin in early 2018. The exact schedule is being developed. The new program is based on feedback from Lottery players that found players wanted more chances to earn free play, but without entering non-winning ticket codes online.

Additional details about the Lottery’s new rewards program will be announced later. To receive updates on the coming changes, players should visit www.MichiganLottery.com/email to opt-in for email. Players will have increased opportunities to use the points they have accumulated in their Players Club accounts before the program ends in early 2018.

Players may continue to earn Players Club points by entering codes from non-winning tickets. Players will be notified at a later date about when ticket codes no longer will be accepted. The Cashword, Bingo, and Wild Time second chance games have been updated, and no longer award reward points. Instead, they award players free play coupons, and entries into weekly drawings for free instant tickets. These games will remain the same after the new loyalty program begins. About 97 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets benefits the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to retailers and vendors. In 2016, the Lottery provided a record $888.9 million to help support Michigan’s public schools. Since it began in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $20.5 billion to support public education.
