Where to Buy Lottery Tickets

General History

Starting in August 1972, the Michigan State Lottery's main mission is to provide games of chance for fun that help fund the state public school system. The Classic Lotto 47 game was introduced in May 2005. With a jackpot starting at $1 million and growing until it's won, it remains one of the most popular games in Michigan's history of lotto. The Classic Lotto 47 game is a pick 6 lotto style game and is drawn by using a random number generator (RNG) instead of numbered balls like most of the other Michigan Lottery games. While this has caused some controversy in some circles, overall, it is an efficient and fair system. 

Drawings are held weekly on Wednesday and Saturday's at 7:29 p.m on Eastern Standard Time (EST). Wagers start at $1 and players can choose up to 5 panels of play on a single payslip. There is a "Easy Pick" option for those who do not want to choose their own numbers and an option to purchase up to 60 consecutive game drawings.
