Multi-state lotteries are games which are available in various jurisdictions across the U.S. In Michigan, you can play the multi-state lotteries Powerball, Mega Millions and Lucky for Life. They offer bigger prizes than state lotteries, as so much more money is raised from ticket sales.

The Multi State Lottery Association
The Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) is an organisation which oversees the operation of games such as Powerball. It is made up of a number of state lotteries, and each member must agree before changes can be made to any MUSL game.
The Michigan Lottery is not part of the MUSL. It had been a member of the Mega Millions consortium when that game started in September 1996. Originally, states were only allowed to offer either Powerball or Mega Millions, but not both. However, an agreement was reached in 2009 between the MUSL and the Mega Millions consortium, allowing states to sell tickets for both. Powerball went on sale in Michigan the following January. The Michigan Lottery joined Lucky or Life in January 2015.
