New Tax Free Instant Games Go on Sale Tuesday

A new family of instant games from the Michigan Lottery gives players a chance to win huge cash prizes.

The new “Tax Free” family of instant games are:

  • Tax Free $5,000! – $1 ticket, $5,000 top prizes, more than $6 million in total prizes available
  • Tax Free $50,000! – $2 ticket, $50,000 top prizes, more than $20 million in total prizes available
  • Tax Free $500,000! – $5 ticket, $500,000 top prizes, more than $42 million in total prizes available
  • Tax Free $1,000,000! – $10 ticket, $1 million top prizes, more than $62 million in total prizes available

Tax Free prizes are net prize amounts after the Lottery withholds state and federal income taxes and any applicable debt offsets from the gross prize amount. Gross prize values depend on income tax rates when the claim is filed. Winners may still owe tax, and should consult a professional for tax advice.

Tax Free instant games will be available Tuesday at the 11,000 Lottery retailers across the state.

In 2016, Lottery players won nearly $817 million playing instant games.
