Michigan had a game like this.
The key word is had. From the Michigan website.
October 14, 2002 - Change Play tickets, a revolutionary idea in the lottery industry, go on sale at retailers statewide. Change Play allows players to use loose change from any purchase to buy a chance to win thousands of dollars. For any amount between 25 and 99 cents, players can buy Change Play tickets, which are computer-generated, "easy pick" tickets. Six winning tickets are randomly selected in a computerized drawing that picks from all of the unique wagers placed that day. Change Play offers drawings seven days a week.
November 15, 2003 - The final drawing for Change Play takes place.
The game didn't generate enough interests to make any money because people want to play games with large jackpots and large jackpot can't accumulate very fast from pennies. Of course having a computer pick the winning tickets probably didn't help either. Players seem to think they have a fairer chance of winning if they can pick which balls will drop from a group of balls being mixed in a chamber they can see.
