Later this year the Michigan Lottery will start selling lottery tickets on-line. In addition other games will be offered on-line as well. Today the "State Administrative Board" has confirmed "Pollard Banknote Limited" will handle the services contract. The company has been doing printing for the lottery since 1996. The lottery says this on-line addition will really increase sales and in turn add millions to the Michigan School Aid Fund. The first lottery game in the state was played in 1972.
