Feb. 5, 2014 – The Michigan Lottery launched a new instant game Tuesday with an interesting difference from normal scratch-off tickets – players can enter non-winning tickets into an interactive, online second chance game.
The new scratch-off ticket is a $5 game called Diamond Wild Time that offers players about 1 in 3-and-a-half odds of winning an instant cash prize.
The scratch-off game is simple enough: players must match winning numbers in order to win prizes. The top prize players can win by scratching off the ticket is worth $300,000, and there are three top prizes available.
For players who don’t scratch off an instant win prize, each ticket has a special code which can be entered into the Lottery’s new Wild Time interactive online game.
Once players enter their ticket code into the Wild Time game, they can play another matching game for a second chance to win coupons that can be redeemed for Michigan Lottery games. The coupons range in value from $1 to $1oo, and will be emailed to players
Players can also win Rewards Points, which will automatically be deposited to their Player’s Club accounts and can be used to enter into special Michigan Lottery giveaways.
To enter tickets and play Wild Time for prizes online, players need to log in or register for the Michigan Lottery’s Players Club. Registering is simple and free, and allows players to access all of the Lottery’s second chance promotions and giveaways.
For those players who don’t want to register with the Players Club, Wild Time is still available to play, just not for prizes. On the Wild Time interactive website, players can click “Just for Fun” and play Wild Time as much as they’d like.
