July 8, 2013 – Last week, the Michigan Lottery introduced its brand new Skee Ball scratch-off game and a special second-chance promotion called Skee Ball Challenge.
The $2 scratch-off ticket offers a top prize of $30,000 (an oversized check is definitely better than an oversized teddy bear) and players with non-winning tickets can enter into the Skee Ball Challenge for a chance to win $100 in free tickets.
To win the Skee Ball Challenge, players can enter their non-winning ticket codes at www.skeeballchallange.com to play an online, digital version of classic Skee Ball.
You’ll get ten shots at the Skee Ball board with three different colored balls. Each different color represents a multiplier for the number of points you score with that color.
A grey ball is simply worth the number of points you roll into (a 1x multiplier).
A red ball is worth twice as many points as the target it lands in, and a blue ball is worth four times as many points as the target you hit.
For any ball that you can roll into a target glowing yellow on the Skee Ball challenge, you’ll get an extra ball.
Then, at the end of each week from July to December 30, the Skee Ball Challenge player with the highest score on the leaderboard will get $100 worth of free Michigan Lottery scratch-off tickets.
The Michigan Lottery didn’t want to limit the Skee Ball fun, so they’ve decided that the Skee Ball challenge will be open to players of the Fantasy 5 draw game as well.
Any non-winning Fantasy 5 ticket purchased between July 2 and July 29 will be eligible for the Skee Ball challenge, so log on and start rolling!
The Skee Ball scratch off game is also eligible for entry into the Michigan Lottery’s “Play it Again” second-chance drawing, where non-winning tickets can be entered into drawings with grand prizes of $1 million.
