If the prizes go unclaimed, they will go to the state School Aid Fund. The Lottery contributed $734.3 million to the School Aid Fund in fiscal year 2013. That works out to about $465 for each of the 1.58 million pupils in the state’s kindergarten-through-12th grade system.
That marked the seventh year in a row that the Lottery contributed more than $700 million to the School Aid Fund. The Lottery has contributed nearly $5.2 billion to support education during that seven-year period.
Players can call the Michigan Lottery Public Relations office at 517-373-1237 with any questions regarding unclaimed prizes.
