There is a survey on the Michigan lottery website for a $10 raffle.  I also heard that Michigan is looking into something called boodle (or boodles ?) games.

   I checked out the two different $10 raffles and they have those annoying 3rd prize levels of either $1000 or $777.  I say annoying because unless the prize is $25000 I dont want to have find some place to claim the prize and then sit there for four hours while they run the paperwork and get permission to cash it (no, I have never won $1000  but I have been told what a hassle it is by people who have).

Why cant they up the retailer payout to $1000 from $600?

Either that or  have third prizes of $250 or $377 with NO fourth prizes of $100 or $77

 

I haven't checked out boodle yet.

    cashing tickets from $600 to $30,000 took less than 10 minutes for me at my lottery office(not the main). I have had this expierence only 3x for $2,600.  4 digit pay offs. So the amount of time you have to wait is not much. It is a check cut from a in state bank. So it should clear fast.

    The reason store dont cash in tickets bigger...they would get robbed!!!!

    be nice though. They could cash you ticket for cash and avoid paying taxes.(have to make it worth there while). like about 5% while .

      It's also reportable for Federal income tax purposes by law.

        You wouldn't sit & wait for four hours for a thousand dollars?Thats $250 an hour,I don't know many people who could turn that down,I know I couldn't.If you win a $1000,send it to me,I'd probably sit and wait a couple of days for that kind of money.

          Maybe, but we dont have a Michigan lottery office here anymore.  The state closed it years ago.

          I would have to find a ticket cashing bank.  I am also told that the banks charge a percentage fee off the top to cash the ticket...I don't know as I have never had a win that big.

                I haven't checked out the games that u r referring to.  But anything over

                $500 u take it to the lottery commission.   It takes maybe 15 minutes unless

                there is a line.  Inkster Rd and Warren ave.  is very fast.  You see a lot of

                older people cashing in their scratch-offs.  I went in a couple of months ago

                and a guy had 35 $1.00 straight tickets.  Get this his granddaughter told

                him to play the license plate on the car in front of them.   Came out straight

                That what i call playing  to win.

                    actually it is over $600 before you have to claim anything for taxes and secondly...why on earth would any one take 35 $1.00 winning tickets , assumming they were 3 digit tickets, to the lottery office and pay taxes when you could go to 2 or 3 stores and do the same thing and pay NO taxes...DUH !!!!!    one store cashed 18 of mine one time ...so I know what I am talking about............
