LANSING, August 31, 2007 – A very lucky DeWitt woman, who has played the Lottery for years, struck it rich when she matched 10 numbers in a 10-spot Club Keno game.
The anonymous woman also matched zero of 10 numbers two separate times to win an additional $10, brining her total win to $100,010!
The easy pick ticket was “guarded by her significant other” before it was cashed in at Lottery Central in Lansing. The lucky winner has no immediate plans for her prize money.
The winning ticket was purchased at Center Stage, 1785 W. State Rd., in Lansing.
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 2006, the contribution was $688 million.
