LANSING, September 19, 2006- A very lucky Flint man is $20,000 richer after he matched all eight numbers in an 8-Spot Club Keno game with a “2X” Kicker on Sept. 13.
Steve Benjamin, a machine repairman for Buick, said he hid the ticket in a safe before claiming his prize.
He has no immediate plans for the prize money.
The winning “easy pick” ticket was purchased Jamins, 3708 Robert T. Longway, in Flint.
