LANSING, April 24, 2006- Donald Lewis matched nine of 10 numbers in a Club Keno 10-spot game and won a $20,000 prize. Lewis bet $2 a draw and chose the Kicker option to win the prize amount.
The 69-year-old regular Lottery player was excited with his prize money. He plans to use some of it to travel with his wife, Shirley.
The winning easy pick ticket was purchased at DB Coopers, 29028 Campbell Rd., in Madison Heights.
Immediately before each Club Keno drawing, a wheel spins on the Club Keno monitor selects a Kicker number of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10. Players can select the Kicker box on their play slip and pay $1 for each dollar originally wagered. Wins on regular Club Keno drawings will be multiplied by the Kicker number, allowing players the chance to win up to 10 times their original prize amount.
Kicker began on November 20, 2005 in all 2,000 locations selling Club Keno.
Club Keno offers 37 different ways to play and win and with Kicker, up to a $20 million top prize. Players can wager $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $10 or $20 per drawing and tickets can be purchased for up to 20 drawings at a time. Players win Club Keno by matching some or all of the numbers they have selected to the numbers drawn. The more numbers matched, the more the player wins.
All proceeds from the Lottery are contributed to the state School Aid Fund which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan. In fiscal year 2005, the contribution was $667.6 million.
