Michigan Lottery gears up for online sales in spring

Michigan LotteryMichigan Lottery: Michigan Lottery gears up for online sales in spring
53
Rating:

LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Lottery plans to begin selling online subscriptions for games such as Mega Millions and Powerball starting this spring.

The state says the move will bring in more revenue for schools and improve the lottery experience, but some businesses are concerned it will hurt in-store ticket sales.

Daily 3, Daily 4 and Club Keno would not be part of the initial program, which allows customers to sign up for multiple ticket purchases over a period of time.

A new system called iLottery would begin offering online sales of single tickets and instant games near the end of the year. Gov. Rick Snyder's budget calls for $3.3 million to launch iLottery, which could include online, mobile and tablet applications.

          We had MM online for a while, but you have to give your ss # and thats a big turnoff. Did'nt hurt store sales.

                        So does this mean if i purchase MM or PB online for MI and win, i will be able to claim the prize and not have to go public if say they give you that option.  Even if i live in Oregan?

                          I don't think you'll have to worry about that.

                          This'll be for Michigan residents only.

                            I was just wondering if they would allow people to use their EBT cards to buy lottery on line, Gas stations, have ATM'S , Many have EBT Cash, so thats how they buy lottery, others will make a food purchase, then the clerk will do a cash refund, ta da, How to turn your childrens food money into lottery tickets, it's magic!

                            Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                            For a lead role in a cage?
