Beginning Thursday, random Lucky For Life tickets will include a $7 Online Game Card. Each Online Game Card will be printed from the retailer’s Lottery terminal and will include a unique code that players enter into their MichiganLottery.com account for online play. Each code is valid for five years from the date of receipt.
The promotion is free for players, and will run for a limited time in September.
For just $2 per play, Lucky For Life gives Lottery players a chance to win prizes ranging from $3 to a lifetime of cash. To win the game’s top prize of $1,000 a day for life, players must match all five winning numbers ranging from 1 to 48, plus one Lucky Ball ranging from 1 to 18. Players who match all five winning numbers, but not the Lucky Ball, will win $25,000 a year for life. Lucky For Life drawings take place every Monday and Thursday at 10:35 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at Lottery retailers across the state.
