The Michigan lottery has a long and interesting history and provides a great deal of excitement to the players. Michigan lottery information hat you may not be aware of, however, also shows that Michigan provides more than just excitement... it also provides funding to the state for important programs that benefit the community at large.
The Michigan Lottery began in 1972. Voters in the state of Michigan agreed to have a state lottery in Michigan through a 2-1 margin vote on May 16, 1972. Four months later, on August 1, 1972 the Governor of Massachusetts signed the Public Act 239 into law to formally approve the lottery. On that same day, the first Lottery Commissioner in the state of Michigan was appointed. His name was Gus Harrison.
The first tickets of the first lottery game went on sale a few months later, in November of 1972. One year later, in 1973, the first $1 million cash prize was awarded to Hermus Millsaps. In 1975, the first weekly drawing of winning numbers was broadcast in Michigan and the lottery also began selling instant scratch-off game tickets to the public.
As with many state lotteries, the Michigan Lottery grew from that point, adding many more drawing and scratch-off or instant win games along the way. While adding games and producing winners, the Michigan Lottery has also set sales records and is one of the oldest successful lottery systems in the United States.
Citizens typically vote to approve the state lottery only when they believe that the proceeds from such initiatives will be used to help out in some way. The Michigan Lottery proceeds, for example, go to a fund that supports education.

The Michigan Lottery, as one of the oldest lottery systems in the United States, has its share of memorable winners over the years. One famous but sad story is about a winner named Ken Proxmire. Ken was a machinist who won $1 million in the Michigan lottery. After winning the money, he decided to leave Michigan and move to California. Once living there, he opened his own car business with the help of his brothers. However, within five years, Ken was filing for bankruptcy. He had lost all of his millions. Although Ken does not want to talk about his ordeal, his son Rick said he learned from the experience and is now living a much more simple life.
