Michigan Lottery Tickets Can Now Be Purchased In Select Walmart Stores

Beginning this month it becomes easier to purchase Michigan Lottery tickets, as select Walmart stores are being outfitted with state lottery self-serve kiosks.

A total of 19 Walmart stores will host Michigan Lottery ticket sales. Players will be able to purchase tickets and redeem winnings. Installations of the kiosks will commence in April and be completed by June, according to the state lottery commission.

Currently, lottery tickets can be bought at more than 10,500 licensed retailers in the state of Michigan. They’re also available through the Michigan online lottery.

MI Lottery Commissioner, Suzanna Shkreli, said in a press release:

“The placement of self-serve Lottery machines in Walmart stores will not only provide convenience to players, but it will also help us reach our goal of maximizing our contribution to the state’s School Aid Fund.”

What can you do at Michigan Lottery kiosks inside Walmart?

The self-serve lottery kiosks will permit MI Lottery players to:

Tickets range in price from $1 to $20, depending on the game. Scratch-off instant games will be available from the kiosks and offer the best odds to be a winner, but lower payouts. Although, the “Cash Pop” instant game does pay as much as $5,000.

The Daily 3 and Daily 4 draw games are popular with Michigan Lottery fans, offering two drawings most days of the week, with cash prizes.

The Michigan Lottery is one of the oldest in the nation, starting in 1972 with the slogan “the chance of a lifetime.” Since it started with one simple game, the MI Lottery has evolved to include many options, from instant tickets to weekly draw games. The state also offers lots of content online.

Proceeds from the MI Lottery go to fund Michigan’s public school system. According to the state lottery’s website, more than $1.3 billion was generated by the lottery in fiscal year 2023.

Cash Pop games now available in Michigan

If one or two daily drawings aren’t enough for your lottery needs, then you’ll love Cash Pop. This game debuted in Michigan on April 14 and has a new drawing every 14 minutes. Yes, really.

Starting at $1 a play, Cash Pop pays out as much as $5,000 and/or 500x the wager. There’s a reason Cash Pop has been so popular in every state where it’s being played: the immediacy of this “draw” lottery game is very exciting.

Pollard Banknote will continue to print MI Lottery tickets

For nearly three decades, Pollard Banknote Limited has printed lottery tickets for the state of Michigan.

Last month, the MI Lottery and Pollard announced a new five-year contract to continue a relationship which will see Pollard supply instant tickets and other products in Michigan through 2028.
