Grand Rapids man wins big

LANSING, July 10, 2006 – A very lucky Club Keno player struck it rich when he matched all six numbers on a 6-Spot ticket.  The prize usually pays out $1,100; but the player wagered $10 per draw to multiply his prize to $11,000!

The longtime player, who previously won a $25,000 Lottery prize, chose to remain anonymous. 

The winning ticket was purchased at Joe V’s, 526 Stocking Ave., in Grand Rapids.

Club Keno offers 37 different ways to play and win.  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.
