LANSING, October 17, 2007 – A very lucky player matched eight of 10 numbers in a 10-Spot Club Keno game to win $10,000!
Arthur Jankowski of Fenton said he “about had two heart attacks” when he realized his ticket was a big winner. The usual prize for matching eight of 10 is $500, but Jankowski wager $20 on the draw to multiply his winnings.
The lucky ticket was purchased at Walden’s Lounge, 1114 N. Leroy St., in Fenton.
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.
