LANSING, August 31, 2007 – A very lucky Club, who opted to remain anonymous, claimed a $250,000 prize at Lottery Central. The winners matched 10 of 22 numbers in the July 11 Keno drawing to win the top prize.
The lucky winning own pick ticket was purchased at Double Barrell Party Shoppe, 4210 Sashabaw Rd., in Waterford.
The Keno game is designed to appeal to players wanting better odds of winning a prize. To play Keno, a player selects 10 numbers between one and 80. The Lottery draws 22 numbers from the field of one to 80. Players win if they match six, seven, eight, nine or all 10 of the numbers on their ticket to the 22 drawn by the Lottery, or even if they match no numbers at all. A player matching 10 numbers wins $250,000; nine numbers wins $2,500; eight wins $250; seven wins $25; six wins $7 and matching zero numbers wins a free $1 instant game ticket. Keno drawings are held seven days a week.
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.
