Michigan Lottery is offering $5 in free online play


The Michigan Lottery is offering $5 of free play today in celebration of Tammy Weadock's $1 million Powerball win. The Onsted, Michigan resident became the second person to win $1 million on an online instant game during a July 13 online drawing. 

Players will need to create a new account in order to collect the $5 of free play. A promo code will be generated once the account is live and players can use the virtual cash to play a variety of games on the website. Powerball tickets usually cost $2 each.

Tuesday's offer comes right before Wednesday's Powerball $422 million jackpot with a $292 million payout. If won, it will become the highest prize in Michigan lottery history.
