Lucky winner claims prize

LANSING, February 26, 2008 – A very lucky 18-year-old is $15,000 richer!

Tiffany Brown of Benton Harbor said she’s just started playing the Lottery. She matched nine of 10 numbers in a 10-Spot Club Keno drawing and after wagering $3 per draw, she multiplied her prize to $15,000!

The winning own-pick ticket was purchased at Chatterbox, 390 Territorial Rd., in Benton Harbor.

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.

Over 95 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to retailers. In fiscal year 2007, the contribution to schools was $748.9 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $14.3 billion to education in Michigan.
