The Lottery and its gaming system partner, International Game Technology (IGT), have worked for more than a year to upgrade equipment at retailers throughout the state. The final step in the project will be to connect the equipment with the Lottery’s new gaming system.
During that time, players will not be able to purchase, cash, or check Lottery tickets at retailers, including on self-service machines. Players will be able to buy tickets online at MichiganLottery.com and use the Lottery’s mobile app; however, the ticket scanner feature of the app will be unavailable.
The upgrade is scheduled to take place on Jan. 22 from approximately 12 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Lottery players with online accounts will receive email notifications about the scheduled maintenance. Additionally, Lottery app users will receive push notifications providing updates. Information about the maintenance also will be available on the Lottery’s social media accounts.
