LANSING, October 29, 2007 – If you’ve ever dreamed of opening a suitcase stuffed with cash, here’s your chance! The Michigan Lottery’s newest $5 instant game, Deal or No Deal™, is available now!
Deal or No Deal™ has top instant win cash prizes of $100,000 and bonus drawings for $1,000,000 or a chance to play the real Deal or No Deal™ in Hollywood with Howie Mandel, the Banker, and the 26 models.
With a play style based on the hit NBC game show, the Deal or No Deal™ ticket provides players with fun, excitement and chances to win $100,000 instantly. Unlike the TV show, however, the Michigan Lottery is giving players second chances to win! Tickets not winning a cash prize can be entered into two once-in-a-lifetime contests.
In the first second chance contest, four Michigan Lottery players will be selected to receive a Game Show Experience trip to Hollywood to compete in a round of Deal or No Deal™ with players from other participating lotteries and possibly qualify to play the real game with Howie, the Banker and the models. If a Michigan player makes it through the elimination round and on to the show, there’s even a chance to win $1,000,000.
However, no one will go home empty handed—even the elimination round offers prizes from $5,000 to $25,000. The Hollywood trip prize includes roundtrip airfare for the winner and three guests; five-day/four-night deluxe hotel accommodations; two VIP parties; local entertainment, and ground transfers between the airport, the hotel and the studio.
The Deal or No Deal™ game also features a “second” second chance game – a Grand Prize drawing for $1,000,000. All contest entries not selected to receive the Game Show Experience prize will be automatically entered into a finalist drawing to be conducted on August 29, 2008 in which four Michigan players will be selected to participate in a multi-state drawing for $1,000,000 on September 17, 2008. Approximately 120 finalists from 20 lotteries, including four from Michigan, will be included in the drawing pool.
Players may enter their non-winning $5 Deal or No Deal™ instant tickets either by mail (at the address printed on the back of each ticket) or online at the Lottery’s VIP club, Player City™ at http://www.playercity.net. Players may enter as many times as they wish.
Grab a Deal or No Deal™ ticket today and you could be an instant winner of $100,000 or one of the lucky second chance winners to grab $1,000,000 or a once-in-a lifetime trip to Hollywood to play Deal or No Deal™!
