Michigan Lottery offers 100 different instant win games

These types of games are different from traditional scratch-offs, which usually do not include bonus rounds.
Instant win games can be purchased online, at stores, or at a mobile app. These games are not physical scratch-off cards, but rather scratch-off digital cards, which are played by clicking or tapping. There are more than 100 different instant win games available from the Michigan Lottery, with almost half of them available online.
