  1. I swear I have played on 4 different accounts and all 4 have had absolutely no wins. Michigan surely needs federal investigating

  2. Rigged! I saw it with my own eyes, they pick the numbers all around the ones you pay and everybody I’ve talked to at the bar says their numbers didn’t come up and after their ticket is done it’ll be something like a 5x kicker with 5 numbers out of 5 up there!

    00
  3. Rigged, always knows what the numbers are I will never gamble again!

    00
  4. I truthfully enjoy playing Michigan Lottery. The payouts are not even close to the net. You loose more than you win. The screens glitch and I loose money. I don’t put money on any

  5. I won $44 in an online game, went to withdraw the funds and they told me two days later that I couldn’t because I didn’t send them my photo ID and a voided check for the account. First of all, why didn’t you ask for that when I deposited funds, secondly, it’s not a checking account. Don’t you know the definition and lifespan of a parasite? When the people stop using the site, the money dries up, ohhh and so does your job.

    • I’m not a fan of Michigan’s online gaming because I believe it is manipulated.
      With that said and with all do respect, it does state that you have to submit a copy of your photo ID to withdrawal funds. As for the check, if you did not specify 1 of the 3 different avenues that they offer you to withdrawal funds they will ask for a check so they have your bank account information as way to deposit your money seeing you did not specify what option you wanted. You can have it credited to your debit or credit card, deposited into your checking account, receive a paper check via postal service, or you may opt for a withdrawal voucher that you can download and take to any lottery sales agent such as Walmart or your local convenience store. Gotta read shit.

  6. The daily Keno game never has a $250,000 winner. I researched back 4 months, and there was no jackpot winner.

    00
  7. My game glitched and kicked me out to the game lobby. and my money was lower than when I hit play. The game history said it played 2 games for me at the max bet on that game and I didn’t hit it 12 a game and when talking to customer service she said that even if it crash games are predetermined by the system and when I tried to explain I didn’t hit the last to games she said well you won a dollar on 1 and 5 on the other so you must have hit the play button and from that point on It drained every single dollar at a rate that seems to fast. It seems like they were double charging me for games and I did not even hit the bet prize as a prize for 192 bucks not a single prize was equal to my bet.

    00
  8. RIP OFF, Yes it is rigged cant tell me it isn’t. Even the bonus spins where I have “Won $ in free play IF I deposit $” has not given me my freeplay when I made the deposit. Keno, WHAT A JOKE, you will win say you play $5, you will win $5 every 5-6 plays maybe the numbers come up all around the ones you picked, keep the same #s for multiple games, but as soon as you switch even 1 # the previous # comes up. Have spent WAY TO MUCH BUT NEVER WON A DIME. & everyone is right how in the hell if you play $1 is a 10 cent, 40 cent a prize, it’s not like that when you buy a scratch off

    00
  9. I have been playing lucky for life and there is never a jackpot winner check payouts on it for yourself straight rip off for the last 5 years I haven’t seen not one jackpot winner yet they have no problem taken money but won’t pay out enough money.

    00
  10. All rigged, they want their unemployment money back, hide your money hide your wife hide your kids.

    00
  11. I work from around 7pm to 7am Monday thru Friday. I have several different times I am idle at work so it’s the only time I can get a chance to play. I won’t play anymore because you are absolutely correct about the games not paying damn things during those hours. I’ve spent hundreds probably a few grand over the past few months and haven’t won a damn dime. Every single game I play during those hours just sucks your money up until it’s gone. Seems to me that during those hours they have the games rigged so the pot can be refurbished with your cash for someone else to win during the day.

    00
  12. Very disappointed. More often than not I play online and every game I play just sucks my money away. Some nights you can’t win more than a couple bucks. I used to regularly hit on Keno and a few other online games, now nothing. Big scam. The odds of winning on the games are a joke. All the odds on all the online games seem to be set to hardly win at all, regardless of what they claim. They don’t even have the online winners list anymore.

    00
    • Jane, actually they do have that list but it’s been moved I also believe it only displays the winners from yesterday.

      00
  13. They should get zero stars but it’s not an option. Anyone who has played regular on this site will tell you the same thing. It’s completely rigged. Not only that, it’s set up in a way to manipulate the player into believing they have an honest and fighting chance to win. Throw you a bone and then take you down to zero. The online keno is horrible. Completely manipulated outcomes to suck you in. Same can be said about any other legal gambling that’s sanctioned by the completely corrupt Michigan gaming board. I formally complained to them about Michigan lottery online and they never even responded. They know it’s all rigged and are fine with it because without the existence of all these ways to gamble they’d be out of a job. Furthermore, I’m convinced that since the casinos were allowed to reopen that the gaming board signed off on allowing the odds to be scaled way back so they could make up for lost time and to try to help the city of Detroit recoup some of the money they lost during the lockdowns and shutdowns. Same damn thing with all the new online casinos operating since January. Completely rigged and gives the player an unrealistic belief that it’s fair in any way. The only type of gaming allowed in Michigan is rigged gaming designed to wipe the player out. Once in a while they will all, online or in person, give you a little then take you down to nothing in short order. Prior to the lockdowns I had 12 video poker jackpots in 2020. Since they reopen, all of the particular machines I was hitting on just happen to be the ones that are now not available because of the social distancing rules. There’s a table game I was doing really good on, but that ones closed, according to the pit boss, because the governor doesn’t like the covid numbers. I believe it’s closed because it’s literally the last bastion of hope for the player to have even close to a fair shot to win at. A previous poster referenced that every time there’s a Democrat governor that things get worse. You can say that for any web based functionality for the state across the board. The MCGB is probably similarly filled with leftist who if they can’t tax you broke they’ll basically steal your money from you under the guise of their existence and so called oversight of regulated gaming makes it somehow fair. I understand that these things wouldn’t exist if everyone wins, but in particular since the July 2020 reopening, and all the casino gambling by phone, the player has absolutely no shot of winning at anything electronic, with the governor and gaming board nodding in approval. There should be criminal charges against these corrupt and appointed bureaucrats and some form of recourse for the players. That will never happen though because if the MCGB is overseeing it, the courts consider it complexity fine despite the obvious of it being rigged in every aspect in the houses favor. Look up the case about the person who sued over the Wheel of Fortune bonus spin. The house already has an advantage in gaming, but now the player has virtually no shot of winning big, unless you consider $200 big, and cash out and leave.

    • Agreed it’s all bullshit and they tell us that they’re not responsible even though they are.

      00
  14. The Michigan Lottery sent me 10 $10 tickets and they were numbered in order! All the Tickets were Losers! What a scam they are!

    00
    • I do not understand why people even play the lottery. I played a few of the demos and the games are not worth it. Imagine playing a computer generated game where the algorithms can be changed and altered at any time. People need to put all that energy into something else. The amount people spend on lottery games and tickets should be used for investing in the stock market that literally pays you the same price for a stock.

      00
  15. I’ve been playing the same four digit numbers for over 20 years. I win consistently based on timing. I have a rhythm and know when to play what numbers. Since covid I haven’t won anything off numbers that are long over due. I’m not alone. I hear it from others as well. I heard they recently changed the drawing system because of covid. They say they still use the balls for the 3 & 4. Not sure if it’s true. But I do know something weird is going on. You can tell just by the numbers. How they’re falling. The draws have been consecutive with maybe a number or two off each time. Wasn’t like that before. It’s like they added another deck of cards to an ongoing game. Somethings wrong. It’s obvious. Ever since covid started. I’m not playing anymore. They should be investigated.

    • I was commenting on the Michigan lottery. Be my guest. Look at the last two weeks of midday and evening 4 digit draws. A couple numbers go up or down a couple stay the same. And it goes on and on. Every two or three weeks a random and different number will fall but then it starts over and follows that number for a while. It was never like this. I’ve never had so many near misses without it finally dropping. Some people say it’s all luck. Not when you’ve been playing the same numbers for 20 years. They also took away the tool called your numbers up. It let you type in a number and it showed you every time it came out straight and boxed going all the way back to 1986. No punching in dates. I emailed asking to bring it back. They responded like I was just a sore loser. I’m not. They said the lottery is mere chance/luck. It was a helpful tool. And if it’s not rigged and completely chance then why take it away?!?! They replaced it with a tool that is so tedious and time consuming. And you can’t choose a specific number. I’m only angry because I used that money for vacations. I was always way ahead never even close to the hole. It just sucks.

  16. same trouble as Marcelyn!! won some money online, and I am still WAITING to have it tried into my account!! first withdrawal was in my account in 2 days! larger amount, it has been 7 days, and I am still waiting!! Chat reps work from a script! and can’t honestly give an answer to any question! Just a lot of runaround! MSL has no trouble having taxes taken out! or taking my money when I make a deposit to play. BUT!! if they have to give your money back ……. who knows when you will get it!!

    00
    • Same. When I tried to withdraw money they wanted a letter from my bank proving I am the account owner, yet they never sent me an email requesting it so I waited over two weeks for the money and finally got their chat button and that’s when I was told. My status the whole time said pending. Then when I called my bank for a letter of proof, my bank said they never heard of sending me a letter with all the requirements they wanted in it. Ridiculous that I even needed it. I have been playing online for five years, same bank account.

      00
  17. I to somehow believe it is rigged it is a controlled game I’ve been playing my whole life New 26 years now. Only won twice Once for 5k that was over a period of 20 years and once recently for 40k Exactly 6 months ago don’t know how but I got sucked back into it because of my numbers coming out so close so I started playing heavily And every time I was one number off so I kept playing thinking I’m going to hit again to get some of the winnings back especially all my losses over the 26 years but I lost everything that I got six months ago plus all my unemployment I am penniless has destroyed my life caused my divorce cause problems between me and my wife and my children I don’t want to live anymore I kept playing thinking I might hit so I can stop playing and get back to my life but it has consumed me and the future of my kids In six months time they took it all back plus my employment and whatever money I had I am penniless now and don’t know what to do I can’t work for anyone anymore because I’m not physically or mentally capable any more don’t know what’s going to happen to my life I don’t even have the money to pay for the taxes for the winnings I put all the tax money for the lottery winnings back into it also they took every dime it’s a big game for sure

    00
    • I’ve dumped so much money into state lottery over a 35 year period and literally haven’t won over a couple hundred bucks and you’re complaining about it after winning 45k in 20 years!??? Good lord man. Count your blessings and consider yourself lucky!

      00
  18. This is absolutely insane that these games are rigged and they’re not hiding it anymore. Every single time I see people play club keno their numbers never come up and the numbers are always right next to the ones they played, this isn’t random it’s rigged, never gamble it’s proof it’s rigged.

    00
  19. I finally saw someone I know win the fast cash jackpot, it was roughly 432,000 dollars and the way they decide who wins it and when is proof how the state and house have total control over the money, never trust the overall odds it’s still nonsense and bullshit and you’ll lose more than you win.

    00
  20. Why are my winnings still pending? It’s been damn near a month since my winnings were posted but never dispersed. I find it very interesting that the State has no problems withdrawing funds from my account immediately when I’m making a deposit, yet somehow is unable to transfer winnings with the same expediency. Contacting them via their chat line is useless because all you’re going to get is their pat response (blah, blah, blah) and nothing gets resolved. I’m done with this nonsense.

    00
  21. Loose loose loose. If anyone likes to waste your money and lose on any game they have to offer to play the Michigan lottery. I would feel better buying a book for a kid or something rather than wasting another dime on them.

    00
  22. Every game is rigged, don’t let anybody fool you into believing otherwise, you will be shocked how much money people lose and it starts with the state and house rigging the games in their favor, they then lie about how much money goes into what programs and it’s getting much worse since now it’s legal for online casinos if you’re reading this don’t ever gamble, work hard for your money and don’t throw it away they’ll rob you in cold blood and say you have the gambling problem when the house and state are rigging the games in their favor.

    00
  23. Junk garbage slow on winnings can’t get paid sometimes don’t even get to play for money and can’t cash out without a hassle

    00
  24. I FINALLY won something through daily spin to win, when I went to collect my winnings I had to put my debit card in so the funds could be put on there and somehow it took ALL the money in my checking account and they WILL NOT reimburse my money! On top of it I still cannot collect the money I win!! Be careful

    00
  25. Payouts seem suspiciously calculated. I started to notice a few patterns that felt more than coincidence after playing online games for a few months. Even down to the daily spin for entrees. When I would visit the site 1-3 per month, I would always hit the 1,000 or 100 entry spot. But once I got into the habit of spinning every morning, 90%-95% of the time I land on 10 now. My “total entrees” seems to be the same regardless if I spin 2-3 times per month or 25-30 times.

    Bonus rounds in games seem to come up & payout, depending how much of your money they already have. If I win a nice bonus, and cash out $100. You won’t see another bonus/win until you’ve burned through at least $150. As soon as “the house” is up a good amount, they will throw you a bone, because they know they will make it back plus some.

    The online games odds are very deceptive. a game with a 1:5 win odds are much closer to 1:15 odds. If you’re playing a game with x20 tickets, at $.05 per ticket for a total spin that cost $1. You can’t count a $.10 “win” into your odds. Because the players still lost $.90. That’s not a win Michigan! If it cost you “X” to play, a win should be considered winning at LEAST “X”+. At least be honest in the payout odds. And provide the odds for bonus rounds. I’m guessing they can’t because they are controlled via your accounts win/loss.

  26. You owe me 9 dollars. I was playing Wheel of Fortune and it locked up completely. Plz add 9 bucks back to my account.

    00
  27. I attempted to withdrawal $200 in December 2020. Now it’s January 19 2021 and I still have not received my funds. I have called multiple times. I have sent them a void check and my driver’s license and my bank info and still have not received my funds. I called them again today. The girl doing customer service. Named Elisabeth who did not help me but actually locked up my account for 4 months and told me I have a gambling problem… EVEN THO I HAVENT GAMBLED SINCE DECEMBER 2020 I STILL HAVE A PROBLEM BECAUSE I WANT TO BE PAID! I asked for a manager and she hung up on me. I have called back and have been on hold now for 28 mins and no one has answered my phone call. I will never spend money with this company ever again!

    00
    • I’ve been waiting a month myself for $150. They take your money instantly but if you win…you gotta wait

      00
  28. I won 1000$ on December 29th. I waited 3 days after I sent my personal information to get an email saying my withdrawal was approved. Now there is a 2-3 day pending waiting period for them to accept the deposit. 9 days later they finally checked my paperwork but my original tcf bank contract was not enough proof that it was in fact my bank account I sent the withdrawal to. I had to send them a voided check. Mich better. they never emailed me or contacted me or left me a notification on the app that my paperwork was no good. I finally after so long contacted customer service to find out.. Waited another 3 days and here we are now 3 weeks later I got an email that my paperwork was approved. GREAT. Now I just need to wait for 3 to 5 business days for processing. Stay tuned…..

    00
    • Did you ever get paid? I have been waiting weeks for 200 and 3 times I’ve called and they told me you cant use a laminated card you credit union gave you with hand written numbers, it has to be a statement 4 or 5 days later I call and ask for a supervisor and I cant use a statement n now it must be a direct deposit letter and it’s taking all this time because of covid

      00
    • It is a total scam. I have been waiting since November for the $1,000.00 that I won.
      Amazing how fast they can take your deposit in seconds but you need to jump through so many hoops to try to get anything out. All the phony request for backup documentation is just to delay paying. They are spending it faster than they can fulfill their current obligations. I think the Governor needs it for new curtains in her office. Very disappointed in the system and have stopped playing online.
      What a scam.

      00
  29. I used to play club keno a lot and every week I can almost count on winning 410$ 5-5 numbers. And since early April I’ve hit exactly 0-5. And with new changes online, it’s very very bad and it’s not random numbers being drawn. There is no way now they can convince me of this. So I started not playing much. Once in a while on sat-sun. Only. Thanks, Michigan for taking one few things people can do at home during this terrible time for humanity.

    00
  30. Michigan online lottery is a complete scam. It takes them 3 weeks to process a withdrawal on the outside chance you actually win something and then are smart enough to withdrawal it. Customer support is a complete joke. It’s a bunch of high school dropouts that barely know how to tie their shoes.

    00
  31. We all know the Commissioner of the lottery and the system is rigged they play the same numbers over and over total waste of people’s money we need to file a petition for change in our lottery. like Ohio lottery big winners none here in mich.smh

    00
  32. Hardly any payouts. It does seem that they control the payouts for players. Payouts do seem a bit higher this year vs last year, but still not anything above what you spend.

    00
  33. I wrote all the numbers down 340 draws from 6am to 2am, the numbers do not come up the same number of times it is in fact rigged so they can change the numbers.

    00
  34. I knew something was wrong and of course the machine knows how many of what numbers are being played how else would it not allow you to play certain numbers for example 1111. Furthermore researching Lansing history there really hasn’t been Big lottery winners often mostly surrounding cities and Detroit surrounding cities. Online play I wouldn’t be surprised if someone was sitting online playing the computerized there are available 24/7. I believe if you work for the Michigan lottery or a family member you not allowed to play the lottery there rules. That speaks volume to me as far as lottery numbers being random and no one suppose to know. Sometimes I have noticed how long it takes to post the numbers. Anyhow it’s not uncommon for systems or people to cheat other people it happens. What you don’t see very often is someone who knows speak against it and expose themselves for what it truly is. Mostly I keep an open mind and lightheartedness however if I could give this rigged lottery a negative I would.

    00
    • You’re not wrong, the lottery wants their unemployment money back and it’s not worth the time. Honestly, people shouldn’t gamble money is too precious to waste on gimmicks.

      00
  35. I played 20 draws of an 8 spot, not a single dollar. The 21st draw all 8 numbers came up! Yeah, totally not rigged.

    00
  36. My letter to the Commissioner of Michigan Lottery:

    You know I’ve been playing Michigan lottery for years now. I started videotaping club keno online Because I started noticing a pattern of numbers played versus what the computer allows you to win and found a correlation. The computer programming you use for club keno draws can’t be drawn before hand because there’s no limit on the amount of draws you can play the 24 hour. Therefore, the computer dictates who wins and who doesn’t win, even if you pick a set numbers, the computer decides when to pay out nothing more nothing less. I played two numbers at five dollars a draw 15 times in a row, switch my numbers on the 16th drop and miraculously my original numbers came out after I switched them. This is not the first time I’ve had this happen to me, and I’m sure it will be the last time. The nice thing is is I’ve videotaped every single occurrence, and will be forwarding it over to my attorney and the media outlets to show the people of Michigan what type of scam you are running. You should be ashamed of yourself, and As a past attorney you should know nobody is above the law. Thank you

    The Commissioner forwarded this to some guy named Jake H. And this is Jakes response: Dear Player,

    The Michigan Lottery Commissioner forwarded your recent email to me and asked me to address your concerns.

    All Lottery games, including Club Keno, are random games of chance. The equipment used to conduct Club Keno drawings, which take place about every three-and-a-half minutes, has been tested and verified to produce random results by an independent third party. Neither the Lottery nor the computer conducting the drawings determine when a player might win, it is purely chance. In the 2019 fiscal year, players took home about $410 million playing Club Keno games.

    We appreciate your business and support of public education in Michigan.

    Sincerely,
    Jake H.
    Michigan Lottery Public Relations

    Now my response: Ok then, how do you explain the online Club Keno?? The draws are not every 3 minutes? It is instantaneous which allows the computer to know what your betting, and produce any combination of numbers it wishes instantaneously. I’ve actually talk to people that used to work for The computer department of the Michigan lottery. They told me that everything online is programmable ahead of time, and once the computer takes in a certain amount of money, then they pay out. How can this be done with all the numbers are random??? It truly doesn’t matter because I videotaped every session and have proof and how you read the system. I’ve already forwarded my evidence to certain news outlets and my attorney who are doing further investigations. I find it hard to believe that you actually have a past attorney as your lottery commission??? Who doesn’t even have the common decency to answer my previous email directly, instead he forwarded it to a subordinate. Trust me when I say it’s just not me you are screwing over, it’s the state of Michigan and the residents who play the lottery. Will be interesting to see your answers when the story breaks, and how you’re going to explain this.

    Stay tuned for more updates!

  37. The odds are AGAINST you, don’t bother, you’ll just lose a lot of money than you win. You should just hang onto your money and spend it on important stuff.

    00
  38. Where do I start …. It’s currently 2020 on October 1st.
    They sent me a special “vip” coupon for being such a “loyal player”.
    Bullshit. I stopped playing online months ago during the Summer, once I decided to do some research on these online games. Either way, I was doubtful and said you know what, I’ll give it another chance. Decided to try the demo mode of a new game that released at 20 cents a spin, got some good winners. Changed it to real money, up to $10 a spin bets, lost ALL $50 within a 2 minute span. Originally, I tried removing the funds into my account but nope, Michigan doesn’t want you to have anything without the chance of losing it first! This game had odds of 1 in 4 and lost on ALL 5 spins in a ROW. Did you know, MOST of the games that YOU play have odds between 1 and 40 chance .. The ones you really want to play, like Wheel of Fortune for example. Everyone loves it, everyone wants a chance at that wheel. That’s why they make the odds so incredibly bad so 99% of the time, you’re GUNNA LOSE. But oh no, go play Instant scratch baseball, one of the LAMEST games possible, half-ass made and lazy. Honestly, keep this shit up and you’re gonna have some problems MI LOTTERY. I don’t hear ANYTHING EVER about you doing charities or donating the money to schools in NEED. All I hear about is them closing, and how much the company doesn’t do shit to help. Even though they insist they donate 7% of their revenues, we all know that’s a lie. I just don’t understand how no one has done anything about this yet. I love Michigan, but jesus christ this state is SLOWLY becoming a shit show with crap like this going on behind the scenes.

    Go to Soaring Eagle Casino or Firekeepers, they will treat you right. 🙂

    • Any time a democratic Governor is running the state lottery isn’t fair. Roads fall apart. Schools and opportunity zones close. The lottery pay outs for scratchers and keno and 3,4,5 digit and classic 47 will and does not any especially during an election year when they have to funnel that money to their puppet fore runner. Once election is over it will pay out a little better but not much. Look at republican controlled states crime is down jobs are present schools stay open people prosper. When it’s run by the Dems seems like we all suffer and want to keep us looking up while they throw the crumbs to areas that already have the money in them. A man recently bought a winning ticket and accidentally bought the same ticket the same numbers he hit twice but my point the area was already prosperous and wealthy and he hits twice for the same numbers he played by mistake I call bullshit.

  39. Michigan Lottery should be shut down, everything about them is a scam and a rip off. They have the worst online games, that takes money back to back. Never giving anything back. They repeat the same numbers daily, and aggressively take money on every game they have. They are the worst state to play the lottery in. I wouldn’t recommend Michigan Lottery to my worst enemy.

    00
  40. I definitely 💯% agree with other reviewers that Online is rigged against you in worst way. If you demo a game you’ll actually win a couple times (of course) so that you’ll play with real money. It’s then that you have been suckered & stuck in there trap/web. Your best option in my opinion if going to play is too play number lotto games like pick 3, 4 or lotto 47 etc, which Odds are better then any chance of winning the other online games. Every game I’ve demo wins then as soon as switched to playing with real money the tables are not same & it feels exactly like others have said that as soon as you win (really small amounts) & get your hopes up it’s as if your flagged & there’s no more winning I mean you might win some change but lucky if even that. Nothing like when playing demo and hit for $50 -$100. All in all SAVE YOUR MONEY if anything Powerball, Lotto 47, Big game, Mega Millions!

    00
  41. They stole my money. 50 dollars. My bank sent a copy of the transaction and there isn’t one for it. Just what I took out to play with. You get no stars.

  42. This site Michigan lottery is a scam can never win!! shame on you Michigan lottery!! SAVE UR MONEY PPL..THIS SITE A BIG RIP OFF💯❗❗❗❗

    00
  43. It’s obviously rigged in favor of the state. Most people never win and the lottery itself lies about where the money goes. The state says it goes towards the school yet they’re continuing to cut the budget due to staff and even coronavirus. So where does the rest of the money go that the schools didn’t use for the yearly budget? It doesn’t go back to the state it goes into the pockets of CEOs. They can’t take it with them when they die. There is a special place in hell for them all.

    00
  44. They are fraudulent. If you win they give you the run around and also you bet 2.50 to win ten cents and when you do start to win they trigger your account so you don’t win snwayher

    00
  45. You never win on online games. Total scam to take your money. Shame on them for bleeding public dry!

  46. Today I took a spin on daily spin to win and the wheel stopped on In-Store discount. No discount was offered and 10 entries were added to the balance that presumably participates in some drawing that cannot be verified.
    We all understand that there are only 5 stars…and none with negative starts can be chosen.

    00
  47. This site is terrible and now it is not even available for iOS. When trying to contact support was on hold for over an hour before I gave up. Tried the Live chat and there were no agents. So problems just continue. Unacceptable.

    00
  48. There is no difference between throwing away your hard earned money vs playing the lottery. Do not waste money on this dirty scam, you end up losing money all the time.

    00
    • To your point…I just took a “daily spin” online, and from doing this on daily basis for many months, I concluded that EVERY time the wheel’s arrow tends to stop on anything else other than “Entries” (this accumulates points will give you the option to be drawn from a pool for later winnings) the system is programmed to give the arrow an additional “kick” so it doesn’t stop on actual winnings.

      00
  49. A complete rip off. Never win. All they do is steal your money legally. I will never play this game again. Every time I play they slowly take your money. I don’t know how they expect to keep customers.

    00
  50. This site takes forever to load then tells me I’m not In Michigan then when I do get on the site it don’t let me win anything

    00
  51. Their win loss ratio is worst than a Las Vegas casino. I will not advise anyone to play on their site let alone their scratch tickets. What a scam. They have got my last dollar Rather give it to casino, at least they will feed you and give you free rooms, airplane rides, etc. don’t waste your $$$$$ Mich lottery

    00
  52. This is a complete scam my husband and I both have accounts their free spin dang near matches daily giving no wins. There games payout is bull crap and what schools do they support? We damn near close downs a school or two a year in Grand Rapids! Never won anything amazing ever!! A couple dollars here and there. Not even enough for lunch money!

    00
    • Our schools in Algonac merged and they closed a few but I agree I remember reading somewhere that only 7 percent of the earnings in the lottery go to schools I wouldn’t be shocked that schools can cut budgets too because I’ve seen it happen when I use to go to school years ago.

      00
  53. It’s happened twice to me now. Playing Ultimate wizard, won five dollars and they didn’t add it to my funds. Have prof because I took picture. I’m done playing these games online. If they can’t have their system working properly and honestly I don’t need to play.

    The legislator of Michigan needs to pass a law that any computer controlled gaming system is illegal. Fantasy 5 and Michigan 47 as well as all other games should not be picked from computers. They should have the balls in the machine and randomly picked. Computer programing can be easily manipulated in the result of numbers. I personally don’t trust the Michigan lottery system. No, I am not an addicted gambler who has not won, and mad haven’t, but only play limited times.

    00
  54. ACK-POOEY. Fantasy 5 and the Lotto 47 should be drawn each day. Just throwing numbers up each day shows NO transparency.

    00
  55. After playing with the Keno Instant Multiplier game in demo mode for a very long time, I have direct evidence that it is rigged. Club Keno is almost identical but I’ve found it to not be rigged. Though, even club keno has worse odds than Vegas table games or the Michigan 3 or 4 digit lottery. (When I say odds, I’m talking about chance or winning and payoff both taken into consideration.)
    With the online version or keno, I played a two spot game over a thousand times. All the while, I watched a different pair of numbers that I wasn’t betting on. I noticed the pair of numbers I watched but didn’t play actually hit MANY times more often.
    Michigan is making it look like Club Keno but it’s really like a scratch off ticket… with bottom-of-the-barrel odds.
    Even with a possible multiplier being free vs. paying an extra $1 in club keno, Keno Instant Multiplier is NOT worth it!

    00
  56. Odds are….it’s a scam like everyone is saying. Don’t play online. If you’re going to throw your money away, buy the tickets in the stores because anything done with computers can be and usually is rigged. Online, they sucker you in by giving you a few decent winners in the beginning, but after a few decent wins, you’ll play forever without ever breaking even again, let alone win anything. Just a little side tip, the lottery is connected to ‘education’ funding, so like your taxes, they’re going to rip you off as much as they can get away with it.

    I also think it is a waste of money to buy the big tickets like Powerball or Megamillions, because, as was mentioned before, Michigan residents rarely hit and when they do, it is always some BFE town you’ve never heard of.

    00
    • All gambling is left to a computer. But agreed, people shouldn’t throw their money away. The world needs more intelligence doesn’t matter if it’s just for fun gambling is still gambling and it’s stupid how it works.

      00
  57. I’ve played the lottery faithfully since the beginning and have never won a thing. I’ve lost so much money. The Michigan Lottery need to be investigated, you are not right. The people you give the big jackpots to are in small towns/cities that I’ve never heard of, and I strongly doubt they are as supportive. I play daily, 3 and 4 mid day and eve, Fantasy 5, Keno, and Poker Lotto. I play the Classic 47, Mega Millions, Powerball, and Lucky for Life, weekly. It is time I try my luck at the Casino. No more playing the MSL. So disappointed with how you’ve cheated so many of us.

    00
    • Someone needs to start an investigation into Michigan lottery unfair gaming practices… I understand you’re not meant to constantly win….but buying 10 30 dollar losing scratch tickets just about every store you goto is not bad luck…
      It’s a huge scam

      ..then if by some miracle you get one winner out of ten guaranteed its a $30 winner…same payout as a dollar ticket winner ….anyone who works for Michigan lottery is pathetic trash themselves knowing full well you’re ripping off the public

      00
      • Danny, I also agree all gambling when you look at it from real money experience is rigged these companies say we’re not responsible for your gambling problems as a disclaimer that they can’t be sued but I don’t think so when they’re the reason people lose their money over rigged odds. The last time I gambled I broke even and won 144 dollars, three months ago I stopped gambling and even to this day I’m glad I did because since then I never see anybody else win and even the numbers I played never came in. I’ll be honest all gambling should be treated like a boycott, never gamble because you can spend your money off amazon and eBay or etc and get something you want. People gamble to try to make more money but really people should just find other ways to there are endless and infinite ways to make money.

        00
    • Lela you’re not wrong as I type this I’m sitting here playing numbers next to each other and they always pick the numbers right next towards the ones I play the Michigan lottery is a scam now how these nameless winners that win millions I wanna know their names too. Honestly I’d recommend just never give it to the lottery all of us should just busy stuff on amazon etc… at least we’re getting something we want.

      00
  58. 100% proof the game is rigged. You can check your tickets just as kicker screen comes up before and see if you already won that round 100% proof they know the numbers before the game starts.

    00
  59. Website issue so I could not play they said you don’t live in Michigan. Account was shit off and then I asked did someone win that game? Answer “I don’t know”? So insider deals I’m almost wondering. All of you never win I think it says a lot in here when thousands gave one gentleman. Said and won 100. That’s a big amount going to somewhere else. Lottery was for residence not “the damn roads”. Where is $$ for schools. They get worse and worse and we pay for more supplies. It’s public school supplies were always covered now we pay and lottery gone? I can’t wait until the swamp is gone. Haha haha

    00
    • My name is Travis and I live in Marine City Michigan right next to Alongac and I’ll tell you this, I’ve seen more people play this game and lost because they’re always playing the same numbers and those numbers never come up in pairs unless they’re not playing those numbers then the game picks them. I’ve believed for the longest time the numbers are rigged because before the game begins you can scan a ticket just as kicker screen shows up and the results are already in, I’ve seen them even pick all the numbers next to the ones people pick while they’re playing and it won’t give them anything in return it’s not random it’s rigged.

      00
  60. I agree with those people played any games online, entries, points, and push us said oh you have won what is the price was there and now lost? if the winner should have got the mail in a private way instead of the online transaction. I have been playing for 15 years only up to 100 dollar total by coupons winner go to the store playing any games. was not pleased yes waste our lifetime and time go fast also my question is why the school keeping closed in Michigan should be providing education should help the school system keep open but where the money going, lot of money people keeping play a games tickets I keep looking wow lot of $30, $20,$10 and $5 lot of losing; felt bad about this is kind of playing games with all players who have repeat lost and depression. that is kind of sad. but some are winner well congratulations to them but what about online? I do do not like the demo game kind of fool to you. thank you Michigan

    00
  61. Michigan lottery online used to actually give people legit prizes by using points to buy free play, get gift cards (Starbucks, gas, bunch of other ones) and cool things online if you didn’t win. NOW? YOU GET ENTRIES! This way the lottery gets to keep your money when you lose and instead of actually getting something decent you get a bunch of ENTRIES! In other words you get nothing my friends! They keep getting cheaper and cheaper, games are buggy. I’ve won on the site many times but put way more than actually cashed out. This site needs to give more to the people gambling instead of safe guarding themselves using SCHOOLS AND CHILDREN. The entries are bullshit! Get a different dynamic and take the entries off the damn DAILY SPIN its a waste of FU****G TIME. Michigan Lottery is selfish and will suck your soul, but don’t worry you get ENTRIES AT LEAST!

    00
    • Ya Michigan lottery has turned into real lowlife scam artists trash…. I buy $20 $30 scratch tickets all the time….constantly 7-10 losers in a row…$20 tickets 10-15losers in a row…..only 20 tickets in a 30 pack…$20 tickets come 30 in a pack now lol….when we catch onto theyre scheme they give you a gambling addiction number….ya that’s why there are 10 15 losers in a row …its because we have a gambling problem….online sites the biggest scam of all

      00
  62. Rigged, always picks the numbers right next to ones everybody plays.

    00
  63. Michigan lottery sent me texts, and emails about their new Wheel of Fortune game this week and when you try to enter the tickets online it won’t let you saying they are invalid. Do these incompetent dolts even check that things work before they sell the tickets? Where did they get their coders from, some 3rd world country where English is a 4th language????

    00
    • I know it seems all they care about is the money aspect of it instead of committing fraud.

      00
      • They also seem to not wanna put the money back into the business they’re pushing out so it does prove they’re committing a lot of fraud and the money just back into the states pocket because they’re cutting the school and road budgets

        00
  64. I v been playing for many years now, lost thousands, with the biggest win I ever had was $100. Shame on them and me for giving them my money. They have this daily spin to win game and has 3 slices on a circle, 1 Online free play, 2 On the store, 3 Entries for a “bogus drawing once a month, even though the odds are 1:3 for each slice I v only gotten bogus entries for a few months now playing every day (thank god its a free spin daily). There no way 1:3 chances comes out as 1 to a million instead if it was not just a SCAM.

    00
    • Couldn’t agree more I walked into many bars and I see nothing but people losing money because the damn machines rigged the number drawings. Never give the state money for gambling honestly it’s like I tell my girlfriend, if you wanna throw your money at something buy something that’ll make you happy at least it’s something you would want.

      00
  65. I have learned the only way to win large amounts are to bet large amounts. I won $6800.00 alone in one day but I have my games and I can tell when they start to hit then they will for a bit but then it will be a long time before they change and hit more. I think for me it’s that any win over $1000.00 is held and then even if you go to put into your bank account it’s so long then you end up hitting cancel on the withdrawal. One time my first big win I actually had $1780.00 make it to my account the other big wins I managed to slowly pull back out my withdrawals heading to my bank account because they will for days and days say I am at my deposit limit and I wasn’t. I feel like they make it slow and it’s easier for let you cancel withdrawals and any win over $1000.00 is checked for a day. I kinda of think that’s true that you do win more when you first start. Then you don’t win as much. Interested if you close your account reopen a new one of your good luck would return.

    00
    • Yes, I agree you have to bet big to win big I want a $20 jackpot 4 $770 but since then I have not won anything and believe me that 700 is long gone. Keno is rigged too.

      00
      • I also agree it seems what a lot of people miss with club keno for example is only when a lot of people are playing does it seem to be more fair that you might win something I still wouldn’t recommend playing huge amounts of money in a short time because the machines will just pick the numbers next to the numbers you pick. I’ve also noticed you can check your tickets just as the kicker comes up and tell if you already won. I have a friend named billy I run into every now and again he once said with fast cash if the machine doesn’t beep as the ticket is printing out you won something it’s strange but my point is these games aren’t random they have rigged/fixed ratios the games go off. Just spend your money on amazon eBay etc…. at least you can get something you want.

        00
  66. What a bunch a shams. I can give my money online but when or if I ever win good luck getting your money back. I tried and failed so I just played out my winnings and lost everything as always. thanks for the fun that is not there. I lost over 50 times in a row. you just suck

    00
  67. Fast cash is the biggest scam of them all

    00
    • Exactly you have better odds with 20 draws of a four spot than 1 fast cash that’s 20 dollars.

      00
  68. I agree that Michigan lottery sucks.. I been playing for awhile and tonight realized how much of a rip off it truly is. I literally played over 200.00 on the same scratch off.. I literally got no winners from mid roll all the way to end of the roll.. I have never ever seen that.. it was what I needed to finally rid myself of the lottery spell.. I will not give the state my hard earned money anymore!!

    00
  69. I’m a clerk at a gas station 2 years now, selling millions of dollars in Lottery tickets and online games. One time, that’s ONCE IN TWO YEARS, have I seen someone win $1,000. And before that happened a week ago I’d only seen up to a hundred… and that’s only been four or five times in TWO YEARS. I’ve spent probably 5,000$ since I started and have won $100 once. I’ve seen up to 10 twenty dollar tickets in a row all loose repeatedly on all different tickets. We all need to start our private Lottery so the money isn’t pocketed by the state.

    00
  70. I won’t lie, I’ve been playing for years. I can offer some advice that might be able to change the way you play these games. Pick numbers next to each other and try to pick numbers they don’t always pick after a certain amount of draws. Don’t play more than a four spot.

    But now for the negatives of why I’ve stopped playing this game a lot more than I use too. As a programmer a lot of people seem to ask why the numbers seem to be all over the place and why they always seem to land right next to the ones you get but not always hitting yours, or to make it more confusing they hit numbers you need but just enough it’s still zero dollars, example, you hit 3 numbers out of 8 instead of 4 out of 8. I’ve learned within the time I’ve played this game that computer style lotto games ARE NOT RANDOM, I REPEAT ARE NOT RANDOM. When another round starts after 2 minutes and 18 seconds the game already knows what numbers are going to come up, this means the odds are fixed and unless you know what numbers everybody else is likely to pick and say you pick the opposite you’d have a better chance of making money when nobody else is hitting. To further the ratio of odds even further is what numbers they decide to pick next. The game at the end of the month is going to pick all 80 numbers the same, however it will take a different path to achieve these it’s goal of collecting money for the state and avoid paying out huge amounts, for big time winners it’s debatable that these are decided ahead of time. In other words, you might as well just spend your money on gambling on something else you’re more likely to use and be happy with.

    I highly advise if you’re going to gamble you do it wisely. Write down all the numbers and think about it as you go.

    00
  71. Very close to a scam. I can write all day on horrible details but stay away from it. with literally hundreds of different scratch ticket, online and draw games in a year they release there should be a millionaire made every day ( considering people buy billions of $$ a year ) but there is maybe one person 1 ten years that win more than a mill. also less then 1% of their money collection goes towards schooling our kids.

    00
  72. I’m not a big time gambler, but two times now I went to make a deposit via Paypal and it took two transactions for the same amount. Once it was for only 10 dollars and yesterday it was 25.00. I’m calling paypay to find out and report this transaction. It’s not that much money, but it’s the point if you didn’t authorize this they shouldn’t take the money. I’m done with this website. Michigan lottery will let you win small amounts for a certain time after deposit, but will eat away at your winnings. I don’t think they are paying back players a certain percentage they take in. I also believe they are claiming people won large amounts, but haven’t. No way for me to prove this. I’m done.

    00
  73. Totally rigged, the only game I USE to play club keno. Till extra draw, played 8 spot easy picks 11 tickets for 10 draws not 1 number? MSL lottery response, don’t play anymore

    00
  74. Since the lottery began, I have played and enjoyed never winning anymore than I lost on scratch offs, until 5 years ago. Here are the totals over the last five years. 5 of us in a lottery club-5 people putting in 5 dollars a week for 78 weeks-won $50 total at a cost of $1950. That is a lost of $1900 WOW!!!
    For 4 years bought 10 at a time in a row $20 dollar books for family Xmas. No one won! A $800 lost.
    Last five years on birthdays for 12 people bought $20 dollars worth for each person per birthday in a row each time. 1 person won ten dollars once. That means a $ 1190 lost.
    For my staff and coworkers the last 4 Christmas, I bought 75 two dollar scratch offs, each year in a row. 1 $40 winner. Thats’s a $560 lost. 4 years in a row I bought $20 dollars worth every week for myself all in a row. My winnings were $0.00, lost $4,160. I have not bought any for myself in a year, so today I went out and bought 7 $3 cash words all in a row. Odds 1 in 4.01-NOT!!!!
    I can verify all of this. the sad thing is this is not the exception but really the rule.
    So after 100 in winnings and $8631 in losses my odds are .011 of a percent chance to win. I will never purchase anything that has anything to do with the Michigan Lottery. See you suckers, I’m done being one.

    00
  75. never seen so many losing tickets on a new game stay away from the new bonus game the state wins everyone I talk to says the same thing

    00
  76. Despite initial fun, I closed my online Mi Lottery account.

    The good: Available customer service options via the website are decent. I always received my withdrawals within a week. Games are colorful and well-designed.

    The bad (and this is huge): As a player, you quickly realize that there is a pattern to the online instant games to “hook” you with modest wins upon signing up, then slowly transitioning to losing payouts. Here’s how it works:

    At sign up, you will make a profit of 20-100% on your initial deposit. This winning streak will continue for several weeks of play, whether you play weekly, daily, etc. Then comes the day when you lose your entire deposit. “No big deal! I usually win.” Play again to a modest win. Then, a losing deposit. Eventually, this pattern will transition to making a profit 1/4 of the time, then rarely.

    By now, you have been trained to be hopeful, and expect the losing streak to end any time now. Not happening. Deposit $25, expect to withdraw no more than $10-$20. Keep in mind that, no matter what your actual winnings are, you can’t withdraw until you have a minimum $10 of winnings.

    Online, most heavily promoted instant games always have the worst payouts (you often “win” $.50 on a $2.00 bet). Scroll the bottom of the Games page for those that return no less than your bet.

    Check out the Big Winners page to get an idea of the actual odds. Notice that certain online games have not paid out a jackpot larger than $500 ALL YEAR. Consider that these games are literally played constantly, 24/7/365, by thousands of players. If you enjoy gambling, save your fun money for the casino, or maybe even physical tickets.

    00
  77. My review for Michigan lottery would have been great about 6 months ago, I play online pretty often and won a small fraction of the time, making it worth playing, and also quite fun. Then came the day when I logged into my banking account and noticed withdrawals from my checking account, in 50$ and 100$ increments, adding up to $500. I know I didn’t play these amounts! I call Michigan lottery to claim fraudulence on my account and they immediately discredit it right away, claiming they have proof it was from a familiar IP address, also being quite rude to me about the whole thing. I explain further, I’m sleeping at 3 am and I didn’t log in at that time and make any deposits, I want a refund, still no luck, stuck with $500 that I didn’t spend. Screw the Michigan Lottery and their low tech website with obviously terrible security. NEVER put your information on their website, it’s not secure and even worse almost impossible to get info deleted once it’s saved in their system, SAY NO to Michigan Lottery online play.

    00
  78. Won $1,000, requested it to be withdrawn, it’s been 2 months. Still haven’t seen a dollar. Starting to think I’ll never see it…don’t waste your money.

    00
  79. It’s all a scam. Stay away from online instant games!! I lose my money faster than I would playing slots at the casino. Won my very first bet, but quickly lost it. Deposited 25 dollars 4x in one day and didn’t win a single bet. I have spent several hundred dollars online and have not won a single time. The odds are bullshit and not true. Do not waste your money. I’m shocked these games and sites are not regulated by the gaming commission, they are literally robbing people.

    00
  80. I have to agree with all of these reviews. I also have one money at first, never more than about 150 bucks. I would play every day and NEVER win! Odds are we can’t all be wrong. If anyone knows the proper legal channels for investigating the Mich. Lottery online games, please let us know. I’m sure there is plenty of evidence of foul play.

    00
  81. They say I have to be in Michigan to buy anything online, and they can’t verify I am in Michigan. I have turned my VPN off, and updated Flash Player, and allowed access from their site. The secretary of state and voter records has splashed my address everywhere all over the internet, so I find it difficult to believe the lotto can’t verify I am in Michigan. I am now switching to Proton mail, since the lotto seems to only be trying to have access to my info, and is not allowing me to purchase anything.

    Also, I purchased their $10 Golden Ticket II Game in January of 2019 out of a vending machine, because it made all these claims about second chance games, and then when you read the fine print, they say this offer only applies to any ticket purchased on or before November of 2018. What a scam!

    00
  82. I think everyone with a 1 star review on here has a gambling problem. I can admit it when I have a gambling problem like this “I have a gambling problem god damn it”. It’s gambling, and if I would quit while I’m ahead I would be ahead money, but no I just keep going til my money is gone sometimes instead of stopping while I’m ahead and withdrawing my winnings.

    00
  83. I’m starting to suspect this is rigged… How can I play let’s say shocking 7 about 30 times in a row and win nothing? Each ticket cost 1.75 so you do the math. Also it’s very suspicious that I won 500 bucks when I first started playing but haven’t won ever since… I thought I was just being paranoid but then I read all these comments. Not one comment is positive. That’s weird. My brother said he’s going to investigate it because he knows it’s rigged and doesn’t want me to waste my money. He’s very good at his job so I’ll give an update to all of you soon. In the meantime I’ll play once in awhile. But if I find out bad news I’m deleting the app and you guys should too.

    00
  84. On Dec 3, 2018, I was looking online lottery mid day and it posted 3211 on I believed I hit box 4 digit number 1213. I went to the liquor store across from 9000 e. Jefferson Detroit, Mich 48214 and said the number came out was 3210. I showed snapshot of lottery 3211. Several people in the store complaining same thing…we didn’t understand when lottery Michigan online posted the number. What can I do to resolve the dilemma

    00
  85. Hey, if you don’t care about wasting money, try the Michigan Lottery games on your android phone. First game you will win money. After that it’s a huge vacuum that keeps sucking on your cash and NEVER give you anything back. The state rips off the public enough without putting a game out there that does the same. Never use Michigan Lottery games.

    00
    • I have won 2 times once for 500 and once for 300 and now never they have taken every penny back plus some I feel that it is a scam they know the winner of the game before you play it

      00
  86. I play Fantasy 5 with easy match. $20 at a time so that’s 10 boards. Have never won anything higher than $5 on an easy match!! Whenever it has one of the higher amounts $500, $250, $100 the easy match numbers always miss one of my numbers by one number!! For example, if one of my numbers is a 23 the $500 prize will come up as either 21 or 22. And this is not just once in a while it’s EVERY SINGLE TIME! TOTALLY FRIGGIN RIGGED! Screw you Michigan Lottery I am DONE!

    00
  87. I’ve been waiting on my 400 withdrawal for too long. It said may take up to 2 days for processing. Well, it’s been a week and still pending. I called them and they blamed it on heavy volume. I DONT CARE it said up to 2 days period. It takes a deposit in less than 5 seconds. I want my money and I want it now lol. Won’t play anymore if it’s going to take this long to get my winnings.

    00
    • I agree it states 2 business day turn time yet my winnings from 10/29/18 are still listed as pending. Worse is client really representatives blame it on high volume and assure me that accounting is there 24 hours. They WON’T even give an estimate of how much longer or a day or which the accounting department is processing. BS for real.

      00
    • I’m dealing with the same thing. I won the same day and am still waiting on my withdrawal of 1300 and another of 225. They said the same thing to me every time that I have contacted them. I was so excited to win but now I just want the money I won and want to delete my account.

      00
  88. Rip off. Games can be fun. But some never hit prize even when played 15+ times in a row at a higher bet. Crap pure crap. They draw you in the way they do to take your money. Scratch off never win I bought 20 $20 tickets in a row and there were 2 small prizes like 20 and 60 in the mix.. it was almost unbelievable. Michigan Lottery leaves you feeling down and I need to stop altogether. Michigan should be ashamed of the way there are stealing everyone’s money. Sickening, utterly sickening.

    00
  89. I wish I can sue the Michigan lottery. There is no way in hell after spending $300 in 1 hour I shouldn’t win anything. I even tried the demos for each game and no bonus rounds at all. I’m so stressed out.

    00
  90. I have played club keno for years and always had a 400.00 winner at least every 2 or 3 months or more. Now I haven’t won in 11 months. It’s time to cut my losses and bail out on Michigan lottery games.

    00
  91. I buy a 30.00 scratch off every 2 week pay period. I always ask for the newest game. I have been keeping track, and out of 130 tickets, I have won 0. There odds usually state
    1 in 3.12. I’m not a mathematician, but I suspect that my odds of winning nothing are astronomical. I suspect the pay outs, the odds printed, and the number of winning tickets, is all a scam.

    00
  92. Definitely fed up with the totality (OBVIOUS) money siphoning scam that is the “Michigan Lottery”..and I’m clearly not alone. Fair is fair, PERIOD!!! Just as there are many complaints here about the money lost and repetitive losing games, that is to be expected when gambling…to a degree. Nobody enjoys losing, but it comes with the territory of gambling. And being a long to,e gambler I also understand odds; I understand, unless you cheat or just have the best luck ever, you’ll lose more than you win always. But that’s just it, YOU NEVER WIN playing MI lottery. Y “you never win”, I don’t mean that you just don’t become the next lotto millionaire…no, I mean you never have have winning tickets or online games. This state lottery is definitely one that preys on the misfortunes and empty pipe dream wishes of Michigan citizens, just as every lottery does. Proof? Only the poor, lower class, down on their luck people play the lottery faithfully and they know this… rich people are already rich and have no need or desire to play or throw money away on a trillion to one wish! I’ve read many many reviews and complaints about MI lottery games and their obvious BS odds and how much people lose and decided to finally post. Not to be in comparison with anyone here, we’re all on the same team on this, but I’ve spent more in the past 3 years than probably more than every story here combined from what I’ve read based on amounts disclosed in complaints. And it’s a clear and obvious scam to wishful Michigan residents! I play only $20 and $30 scratch off tickets and buy them almost daily. When I buy I don’t just get one here one there, no I buy a few hundred worth at a time and have proof… anyways…i almost never even win half my money spent back. I’ve bought 5 $30 tickets in a row and all been losers.. how does that happen? I could understand if it was all dollar or $2 tickets. But $30 tickets??? That’s a lot to lose on that many times back to back! I keep going back like a dumbass, convincing myself it’s all luck and I have to win one of these days…yeah fukin right. Never do I win. I’d be happy to even break even more times than not, but not in this state. Way more losers than winners, even when you’re playing $30 tickets. No BS I’ve had substantially better luck winning at shady online overseas casinos and that’s the honest truth. They (Michigan) act as if they don’t keep a profit and all money goes to taxes, winners and schools..but if that was true, my city (flint) wouldn’t only have 2 schools cause the rest keep shutting down and my suspension wouldn’t need fixing every fking summer cause of potholes opening on every road after winter. They really need to be investigated by some sort of fair gaming commission or something cause something isn’t adding up here. When I play online I spend $200-300 at a time n don’t ever even come close to breaking even let alone winning cause you lose every hand played no matter the bet. Total scam all the way around. Yeah I may have a slight gambling addiction but that’s my problem and it’s my money… and obviously I have the money to let them dry fuk me out of… they don’t care about your addiction when they’re depositing your money but if you complain then “it’s your fault and maybe you should get help”. Like really?! If they really cared they’d block your account…but that’d be too much like right! Anyway that’s my rant…MI LOTTERY ARE FUKING SCAMMERS AND YOU WILL NEVER WIN A DIME PLAYING. TIME TO BOYCOTT THE LOTTERY AND DEMAND THEY BE LOOKED INTO AND REGULATED JUST AS A CASINO WOULD BE. AND WHY NOT, IT IS STILL GAMBLING! I’ve lost thousands and thousands in the last 3 years and haven’t even ever come close to breaking half way even…isn’t that a sign? Be warned…STAY AWAY!

    00
  93. I’ve profited about 100 bucks off a week of playing. It seems you win in the beginning so I switch to different games often or after I do something productive as a reward. I just requested a withdrawal so I’ll keep people updated to see if I get the money in a timely manner. I can tell they put you through hoops but I don’t mind because its fun and an easy way to score some cash if you’ve got time and a little extra money laying around.

    00
  94. The Michigan Lottery web site seriously sucks! Also, they changed the RNG (random number generator) after December 2017 for Club Keno, there are barely any 10 kickers, let alone 4’s or 5’s. Been playing it for three years… they definitely changed something on it I hardly win anymore. Topical, government finding ways to screw the public.

    00
  95. New website is garbage. You used to be able to search a specific number to find out when the last time it came in. It was called “Your Numbers Up”. Not anymore. As far as website design, maybe using the color black was cheaper than other colors because there is a lot of black within the website. Makes it look dark and miserable. I just think the web developer the state of Michigan hired is incompetent…

    00
  96. I believe the Michigan lottery takes advantage of players and they do not offer enough winners and if you keep trying to win and continually lose they say you have a gambling problem! That’s how you guys cover yourself and cheat us!

    00
  97. Won over a thousand dollars after playing for years and was never able to pull my money out as they made me jump through hoops that were impossible and in the end, I never seen a dime of the money. They so easily took the money out of my account but wouldn’t put it back in. Should be illegal

    00
  98. Played the second chance game, won a $100 coupon, I call to verify and they say no it doesn’t show that’s what you got. And there’s no way to verify or prove it so make sure you screenshot your winnings, I won’t make that mistake if I play again.

    00
    • I screenshotted a Club Keno game in which I should have won $110, called the office and sent it all in via e-mail,……they screwed me and said the one number really didn’t drop.

      00
  99. I was playing online and winning then all of a sudden the game crashed, when offline, I had to log back in and I didn’t win anymore. Another time I was playing and winning (somewhat) then it crashed again in the middle of a bonus round (21), so I called and spoke with a person at Michigan lottery and explained what happened and she told me all game results are determined when you hit play, no matter if it crashes you get that amount that was predetermined at play, so all that wishful thinking which one do I pick in the bonus round is for not, what a scam! Jim S.

    00
  100. Something definitely changed. I keep going back because I used to win at least 40 bucks here and there. But. Now wasting my money, play 3 bucks you might win 15 cents. Terrible!

    00
  101. Love the convenience of the app, however I think there more online instant play games that are more similar to scratch offs. I also think there should be more bonus cash or free play for those who regularly deposit and use their account.

    00
  102. Not certain why the changes were made to the online website, but it certainly was not for the benefit of the consumer. Done with you!

    00
  103. Rigged spin wheel. They give the results of the tickets late for some reason.

    00
  104. Use to get results uploaded immediately, now it takes an hour an a half. Makes me question the results now

    00
  105. I swear these guys are phishers, they keep sending me emails by the 100s some say “Sign in today between 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and get FREE Games of Quick 6!” but they want you to make a deposit instead. They are just phishing legally, I had to filter their millions of emails as spam. I’ve played games on there and entered dozens of games and I have never won a penny, the website is a scam, beware.

    00
  106. Something has changed, that’s for sure. Keno has dried up since they started the new “extra” drawing. Can’t win anything since it started. And the scratch off is even worse. Used to buy a book at a time of $10 and $20. I literally had 10 losers in a row on the $10 tickets. But the odds claimed 1 in 3. Hmmmm. I call scam!

    00
  107. Do not waste your money. Better off buying/playing at your local outlet. Odds are terrible.

    00
  108. I feel like the free spin is definitely rigged. Everyday I get entries and nothing more and I can see how the wheel jumps or clicks because its rigged, at this point spinning the wheel is just something to do. The games I noticed now you win at the beginning like the 1st couple of tries but then after that you really don’t win on these games. Michigan lottery is definitely taking people money for themselves because why is we struggling to try and get our Michigan roads repaired and school material is another whole story of its own.

    00
  109. Stay away from the Michigan lottery… Nobody can win anymore. Not on scratch off’s or the keno you play in bars. I know a lot of people who are fed up and don’t play anymore. Also the Michigan lottery Say’s the money goes to the schools and the roads. Well Michigan has the worst roads in the nation.. This is bullshit…

    00
  110. Since the Lottery put up their new site I HATE IT. I use to spend anywhere from $40.00 – $100 a week. Now, maybe $20. I loved that you could turn in your losing tickets for points to win other prizes or money off scratch offs or free drawings. This whole new site is terrible. I know SO MANY customers who are just as upset with MI State Lottery for this. They never answer emails except with a ‘computer response’ email. So rude.

    00
  111. I just took my lotto 47 ticket to the same store I bought it from. I had 3 numbers which pays 5 dollars. She ran it through and tells me it’s already been paid. It’s been in my pocket since I bought it. The lottery is a scam! Don’t give them another dime!

    00
  112. There was a game that had 2 top prizes each of 100k, 40k, 20k ,10k, at each price point. When I looked at the list of the prizes won for this particular game, 5 prizes of 20k were won by different people… So something isn’t legit in their math. And I use the prizes claimed page for the instants online to gage what games to play. I have been playing a 5 dollar game because there was supposedly a 100k prize left. Now with the new site, there is no info about what prizes have been won for each game. I don’t want to play games that have no good prizes left so I gave up on it. I’m okay playing the lotto if the numbers are legit and I know my true odds. I’ve put 10, 20 dollars in here and there and the most i’ve really won was 250. I tried taking 200 out and it took a week. They really want you to pull that money back into your lotto account so they make it painfully slow….but they sure aren’t slow taking the cash from your account.

    00
  113. I think the Keno Michigan lottery cannot be won unless the lottery officials get the ok to give out a winner. The lottery machines record the numbers played for that day. The numbers are not picked randomly. They are chosen by the random generator. And the random generator is the machines that print your ticket. So it is rigged. I have sat back and watched to see if there were any winners in a year. There were none. But that was back in the 1990’s. It hasn’t changed. The state can’t afford to let you win. They need every dime. If you doubt me, how come there’s never more than one ever. That one guy would win it all. So you think. Stop playing all lotteries the State has rigged it to keep 97% of all the money taken in for that day. The State can’t afford to let you win. The state is in a dire state for cash. So they sucker you with a dream. One question, in its 40yrs how come there hasn’t been multiple winners. There’s always one person. And I doubt that.

    00
  114. I was a big fan of the scratch off $10 but there is something wrong. In the last year I am lucky if I can win a small prize. I gave it one more chance bought $100 of $10 Triple million and did not get one winner. Nothing. And over the past year I have spent $1000 on this ticket and I would feel lucky if I won $10 or $20. No more Michigan can find someone else.

    00
  115. I have been reading all these comments, but decided to try it out for myself and won 160$ in two days only spending an initial 10$. Seems pretty good to me, but I have not received my winnings yet (1-3 business days to transfer money). Seems good to me, don’t know why so many people hate it as much as they do.

    00
  116. I agree with most that their on-line games are terrible. You bet a $1 and win .15 and bells & whistles go off like you hit a jackpot. I’m insomniac so I only play quarters in the middle of the night. Never hit anything so now I just play the games for free. Also, I too noticed that a Christopher from E. Lansing won over $500 about 90 times in a month. I don’t believe that for one second. That tells me all those names on the top right that are supposed to be winners are BS.

Michigan Lottery Exposed — Online Ticket Sales Are Available!

Michigan Lottery Review

Looking at the Michigan State Lottery, wow, they offer a wide variety of games, including the cross-US Powerball and Mega Millions. On top of that, the state has its games that are readily accessible via the official website. Michigan Lottery was initially set up in 1972 to support the public school system. That means that part of the revenue goes to education initiatives. With every single ticket that you buy, you’ll be helping worthy causes in the state.

MI Powerball & MI Mega Millions

It’s hard not to be aware of Powerball Michigan and Mega Millions Michigan with all the hype of the big numbers involved in their jackpots. Powerball is played every Wednesday and Saturday. Mega Millions is played Tuesday and Saturday. Mega Millions and Powerball are the two biggest lotteries in the US (and even across the globe), and they’re known to produce numerous millionaires on an annual basis. As a result, the interest in these two games is understandably high in Michigan.

Michigan Lottery’s Own Game

MI Lottery offers its Michigan Classic Lotto 47, which replaced Winfall in 2005. It is played Wednesday and Saturday, with players choosing 6 numbers between 1 to 47. There is no bonus number or ball. Lotto 47 has a minimum guaranteed jackpot of one million dollars, which naturally turns it into a favorite Michigan player option.

More Games at Lottery MI

Michigan Fantasy 5 is a lovely mid-range lottery played daily at 7:29 pm (EST). Players choose 5 numbers between 1 to 39. There are 4 tiers of prizes paying down to correctly picking 2 numbers. Jackpots start at 100,000 dollars, and they grow if there’s no winner for the respective drawing. The increment by which the daily jackpot grows is at least 5,000 dollars.

Other than Fantasy 5 and Lotto 47, Michigan also has its own Keno version. Players have to choose 10 numbers from a pool of 80 in the game. Keno! has a daily drawing and the lucky winner who matches 10 numbers becomes 250,000 dollars richer. Other than the top prize, numerous additional tiers boost the popularity of Keno.

Lotto MI’s Daily 3 and Daily 4

Michigan Daily 3 and Michigan Daily 4 are played twice a day, seven days a week. These are the small local lotteries that players tend to love. Inexpensive to play, quick and easy, Daily 3 and Daily 4 are both worth a try.

There are exciting games with combinations for winning, including ‘straight,’ ‘boxed,’ ‘wheeled’ and two-way. Players choose a sequential number using (in the case of Daily 3) three numbers from 0 to 9. They can be duplicated hence winning ‘boxed’ with a number like 788. This is one lottery that it’s a good idea to make sure you get your tickets checked with a retailer as there are so many different ways to win.

More on Michigan State Lottery

MI Lottery offers a few other games. Their $40,000 raffle is one of the only tax-free games available in the country. Thirty thousand tickets with a unique seven-digit number are sold with 5,001 raffle tickets selected.

Club Keno at Lotto MI

On top of Keno!, Michigan also has its Club Keno – yep, a bit confusing, but they are two separate things. Club Keno is played every four minutes from 6:00 am to 2:00 am. It involves picking 10 numbers from 1 to 80. The jackpot goes out if you pick the correct 10 numbers from the 20 drawn. They also offer two other twists. Choose the ‘The Jack’ option, which gives you an additional 8 quick pick numbers, which factor into an additional prize scale. Chose ‘The Kicker’ option, and any winnings are multiplied by a number between 1 and 5 depending on what comes up on the wheel spun before the game.

MI Lottery Pull Tabs

Last but not least is Michigan Pull Tabs. This is similar to Scratchers, except instead of scratching off numbers, players pull the tabs. The overall odds are 1 in 5 with a great range of different games. That doesn’t mean they don’t also offer Scratchers. But if you do play their Scratcher games like Cashword or Raise the Stakes, make sure if you don’t win, you enter their Second Chance games!

Michigan State Lottery‘s Players Club

The Scratchers aren’t the only way to get a second chance. Join MI Lottery’s Players Club, and any of your non-winning tickets can be entered. Keep in mind; this is only open to residents of the State of Michigan who are 18 years or older.

Who Can Play at Michigan Daily Lottery?

For any of the games of Lotto MI, players must be 18 years of age or over. MI Lottery allows non-US citizens to play but underline, there will be 30% federal tax withholding. For Michigan residents and non-residents (people from other states), the state tax is 4.25%, and the federal tax of 25%. Tax is only withheld on prizes over $50,000 though there are specific forms to fill in for winnings between $5,000 and $50,000. Checking your Michigan lottery winning numbers through their web site at Michiganlottery.com is excellent for the prize breakdown.

Lotto MI’s Customer Service

Their FAQ is pretty extensive, though in many ways almost too much information. Each of their different lotteries offered have their FAQ. They provide an email contact address as well as an online form for public questions. There is a telephone number though only available during business hours.

Online Gameplay at Michigan Lottery: Mission Possible

Many states limit the purchase of lottery tickets to retail venue visits. Luckily, Michigan has gone ahead to modernize things a bit. Today, Michigan residents and state visitors can get their tickets in stores and online.

Online ticket sales are available for the standard lottery games already mentioned in the article and a couple of additional online opportunities. These include instant games (King of Clubs, Queen of Diamonds, Instant Keno Multiplier, Blackjack Doubler, VIP Gold, etc.), Fast Cash games (20X the Cash, Black Jack, Bowling Bucks), and pull-tab games ($15,000 Jackpot, Bank Buster, Big Win, Bigfoot’s Fortune, Lucky 7s, Neon Bars, etc.).

The diversity is vast, and you can easily get lost on their website. Ticket costs start from 0.05 dollars, and the most expensive entries go up to over 20 dollars for Club Keno. Players can win both the progressive jackpots with the standard lottery games and fixed amounts in the range from 5,000 to over one million dollars.

There have been some complaints about the website being sluggish, and there have also been some reports of the exclusive online games being rigged. According to 2015 data, 86,000 people had signed up for the online ticket buying option within five months of it being launched. Current data suggest that players are spending 2.4 million dollars a week on online lotteries! These people have a legitimate reason to complain if the website isn’t working well or if the number of winning options is limited.

If you do a bit of online research, you will come across dozens of conspiracy theories (numbers being drawn ahead of time, online lotteries that can never be won, etc.), but we highly doubt it. Remember that Michigan Lottery is a state-operated entity that has a reputation to maintain. Also, it’s already winning huge from the winning of tickets. Imagine the scandal that would break out if anything was rigged. Thus, while online games may be tough to win, they are legitimate. If you have concerns about those, stick to the statewide lotteries – these provide enough of an opportunity for monetization.
