Upcoming changes to the Michigan Lottery’s Players Club will require players to update their accounts.
Players Club members have until Aug. 3 to update their accounts by entering the last four digits of their Social Security numbers. Accounts not updated by Aug. 3 will be removed from the Lottery’s Players Club system.
Entering the required information will allow the Lottery to verify the identity and age of the Players Club account owner, providing enhanced security for players. Additionally, players who update their accounts will be able to play the Lottery’s online games.
The Players Club is a free rewards program that allows Lottery players to accumulate reward points by entering codes from non-winning instant, pull tab, draw game tickets, and through online game play. Players may redeem points for entries into drawings for prizes and once-in-a-lifetime experiences or for merchandise, including Lottery free-play coupons.
Michigan Lottery players have a chance to win up to $500,000 instantly playing online. Through its online platform, the Lottery offers players more than 30 different games with plays ranging in price from 5 cents to $20. The Lottery added four draw games – Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto 47, and Fantasy 5 – to its online offerings in January.
More than 322,000 players have registered to play the Lottery’s online games, which were launched in 2014. For more information or to play online, visit http://bit.ly/MSLOnlineGames.
