Online Game Cards from the Michigan Lottery can solve gift-giving dilemmas, and the Lottery is rewarding players this holiday season with the Gift One, Get One Online Game Card promotion.
Beginning Friday, players who purchase an Online Game Card as a gift will receive a second Online Game Card to keep for themselves as a bonus. The bonus amount will vary, based on the purchase amount of the Online Game Card. Bonus amounts available are:
- Buy $10, receive a $3 bonus card
- Buy $20, receive an $8 bonus card
- Buy $50, receive a $25 bonus card
- Buy $100, receive a $75 bonus 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 Michigan Lottery account for online play. Each code is valid for five years from the date of purchase.
Players may redeem up to $200 – not including bonus play – in Online Game Cards per week in their online accounts.
Online Game Cards have been a popular way for players to fund their online accounts because they allow players to buy in store and play online without using a credit card or bank account. About 25 percent of online players have used an Online Game Card at least once to fund their account.
