Michigan Online Lottery Celebrating The Holidays With New Games And Huge Prizes

by Adam Haman in Uncategorized category

The Michigan online lottery is closing out the year with a festive bang and online lottery players are feeling the holiday spirit!

Big prizes paid out this holiday season

In the last two months, the MI iLottery has paid out to online players nearly $138 million in prizes. That’s a lot of moolah and it shows how much the state’s online lottery games have grown in size and popularity since its inception in 2014. This is hardly surprising since Michigan has done a lot to incentivize players with attractive signup and deposit bonuses.

New Holiday-themed Games

To satisfy the desires of their players and also to celebrate the holidays, Michigan’s online lottery has rolled out three brand new holiday-themed games. The new games are Merry Multiplier with a top prize of $50,000, Merry 7×7 with a top prize of $100,000, and Unwrap the Cash with a top prize of $20,000. There are also two more new games (rolled out last month) called VIP Platinum with a top prize of $60,000 and Treetop Treasures with a top prize of $60,000.

Let’s take a closer look at all four of these new games.

Merry Multiplier

This is a variety-game with several different features and ways to win. The highest prize that can be won in this game is $50,000.

To begin, select your ticket cost ($0.25 to $5) and click “PLAY” to get started. Then click the die to select your random prize multiplier value.

The Merry Multiplier game then shows you four different mini-games to play. Players can then click each play area manually to see if they won anything for that section, or if in a rush, simply select “REVEAL ALL” to cut to the chase and see the results immediately.

Here’s a brief description of each of the mini-games:

  • Game 1 – Match both symbols in a row to win the prize for that row.
  • Game 2 – If YOURS is higher than THEIRS, win the prize for that row.
  • Game 3 – If both numbers in a row add up to 10 (exactly), win the prize for that row.
  • Game 4 – Match the MONEY symbol to win a prize.

If any of these areas generates a winning prize, the amount won will be increased according to the multiplier value selected earlier by rolling the die.

Merry 7×7

This is a bingo-style game in which the player is confronted with a 7×7 grid of holiday treasures encased in ice. Each horizontal and vertical line corresponds with a prize that can be won by clearing (or de-icing) the line. The highest prize that can be won in this game is $100,000.

To begin, select your ticket cost ($0.50 to $10) and click “PLAY” to get started.

The player then must choose 7 out of 12 mysterious purple boxes. Each box selected de-ices three squares from the 7×7 matrix. If any horizontal or vertical line is cleared after de-icing the resultant 21 squares, the prize for that line is won.

Players in a rush can simply click “QUICK PICK” to pick boxes at random and get to the results of the game more quickly.

Unwrap the Cash

This is a scratch-off (reveal) game in which a player tries to match one of their symbols to one of two “winning symbols” in order to win a prize. The highest prize that can be won in this game is $20,000.

To begin, select your ticket cost ($0.25 to $2) and click “PLAY” to get started.

The player is then presented with a festive holiday sleigh. On the back of the sleigh, two “gift boxes” can be revealed that are the “winning symbols” for this game. In the sleigh there are also ten more shiny gift boxes the player can then reveal. If the player reveals a match, the corresponding prize amount is won.

Players wanting to speed things up can simply click “SCRATCH ALL” to speed up the results.

VIP Platinum

This is a bingo-style game with a few interesting features. The highest prize that can be won in this game is $60,000.

To begin, select your desired number of tickets (5 to 25) and your ticket cost ($0.05 to $2) and click “PLAY” to get started. Your total ticket cost is equal to the number of tickets multiplied by the cost of each ticket.

The player is then presented with seven winning numbers and a “grid” comprised of the number of tickets selected (5 to 25).  The player clicks to reveal the winning numbers and then can click each ticket in turn to see if it reveals a winning number and if so, the prize value of that number. Any ticket can win a prize and the player wins the sum of all prizes revealed.

There are also two interesting reveal-style features. Each ticket could also reveal a coin instead of a number. If the player reveals 3, 4, or 5 coins, the Extra Reveals Bonus feature is unlocked. Three coins yields 10 extra reveals while four coins yields 20, and five coins yields 30. In addition, any ticket could reveal the golden coins symbol which results in an increase to the prize meter.

Players have the option of meticulously clicking through each ticket in their grid or simply clicking “REVEAL ALL” to find out how they did.

Treetop Treasures

This is a reveal-style game with a few interesting features. The highest prize that can be won in this game is $60,000.

To begin, select the number of tickets you want to play (10 or 20) and the desired cost per ticket ($0.05 to $2). Your total ticket cost is equal to the number of tickets multiplied by the cost of each ticket. Then click “PLAY” to get started.

The player then sees a grid comprised of 10 or 20 tickets (depending on how many were selected). Each ticket can be clicked in turn to see what it yields. The ticket will reveal a feather, a piece of fruit, a bird, or a golden egg.

If a bird is revealed, the player wins the prize shown. If a golden egg is revealed, a surprise prize amount is won. If a piece of fruit is revealed, no prize is won, but all is not lost! Each piece of fruit revealed will fill one space of a corresponding fruit meter. If any fruit meter is filled during a single game the player unlocks the Fruit Fall Bonus, a fun little mini-game that yields the player a guaranteed prize.

Again, players who just want to skip to the end can click “REVEAL ALL” to turn over all tickets at once.
