In 1972, the Michigan State Lottery was inaugurated with its debut game being the 5-Cent Green Game. It expanded its repertoire by introducing Daily 3 in 1977, Daily 4 in 1981, Mega Millions in 2002, Fantasy 5 in 2004, and Lotto 47 in 2005. 2010 saw Michigan becoming a part of the Powerball lottery. An additional feature, Double Play, was added in 2019 for both Fantasy 5 and Lotto 47; this involves a supplementary draw after the primary game, with non-jackpot prizes getting a two-fold increase.
Uniquely, Michigan is among the few states permitting online lottery play. Players have the option to buy tickets digitally for most in-state lotteries as well as for Powerball and Mega Millions.
Revenue from the lottery sales is channeled into the School Aid Fund, which substantially benefits K-12 public schools across the state.
