Recently, the Michigan Lottery went live with its iLottery platform and Michigan residents can now buy and play lottery games on their mobile devices or personal computers.   The release comes nine months after the Michigan Lottery received approval to enter into an agreement with Pollard Banknote Limited to provide the iLottery platform.  In connection with the January approval, the state says sales are projected to increase the Michigan Lottery's contributions to the state School Aid Fund by about $480 million over the next eight years.

In order to log onto the iLottery platform, a person needs to visit: https://www.michiganlottery.com/about_online_games?ng_id=111977DA6EA82766&ng_token=1647709331

The registration process involves establishing an account; providing date of birth; confirmation of social security number; and cell phone number. Players can deposit funds using various payment methods including Visa and MasterCard.

The games include Keno and traditional lottery scratch off-tickets with prices ranging from $0.50 to $20.00.

The iLottery platform has various methods for obtaining deposits based upon the amount of money won on the website.  The platform further includes an area in which patrons can set deposit limits and also voluntarily exclude themselves from being able to access the iLottery games.

The Michigan Gaming Newsletter website reached out to the Michigan Lottery for a comment on the iLottery platform.  In response, a Lottery spokesman has indicated that, as the iLottery platform is in beta test mode and will not “officially” launch until later in the year.
