The Michigan Lottery will launch a new instant game on June 4 that includes a variety of features that players – and the Lottery industry – have never seen before.
The $2 Raise The Stakes ticket – which includes over $7 million in total instant-win cash prizes – includes 150 second chance drawings with prizes totaling over $300,000. The game also provides players with both a Web site, RaiseStakes.com, and free mobile app from which they can create and join teams with other players in order to pool their entries. Players will also be given access to various social media tools, including Facebook, Twitter and Disqus, in order to share their winning experiences, invite friends to play, and chat with their team members.
HOW TO ENTER
Every Raise The Stakes ticket includes a unique Entry Code that a player can submit either the Web site or through the mobile app. Every ticket is worth between 1 and 60 drawing entries! The Entry Code is also printed on each ticket in the QR code format – a Lottery industry first – so that players using the mobile app can quickly scan the code to automatically receive their entries.
- Daily Drawing Prizes – $70,000 in Total Prizes Awarded!
140 daily drawings will be conducted. Every day, five winners will be selected to receive $100!
- Progressive Jackpot Drawing Prizes – Up to $300,000 in Total Prizes Awarded!
A total of 10 progressive jackpot drawings will be conducted, one every two weeks. For these drawings, players can choose to keep their entries for themselves or assign them to a team for a shot at increasing their chances to win! Every entry the player or one of their team members submit raises their potential progressive jackpot prize by $500. It takes 60 entries to “raise the stakes” to the maximum prize of $30,000! In each drawing, if the entry selected was assigned to an individual, then that individual wins the entire progressive jackpot. If the entry selected was assigned to a team, then each member of the team receives $500 for each entry he or she contributed.
Playing as a team not only increases a players potential progressive jackpot faster, it also increases the chances of winning! Players decide who can join their team. Using the built-in social media tools, players can invite just friends or make their team(s) available for anyone to join!
Using the Web site or the mobile app, players can celebrate their winnings with friends, family and other Michigan Lottery players through Facebook, Twitter or email. Players can also chat with their team members and cheer each other on as they get closer to their progressive jackpot goals!
Prizes awarded in the Raise The Stakes drawings are emailed to winners in the form of a voucher redeemable at any Michigan Lottery retailer or Claim Center.
