Club Keno winner claims prize

LANSING, April 18, 2008 – A Flint woman is the lucky winner of a $20,010 prize!

She played the Club Keno game and matched all seven numbers on a 7-spot game and three of seven numbers on a different game on the same ticket to win. The prize would normally be $2,001, but Tami McIntosh bet $10 a draw and multiplied her prize to a whopping $20,010!

The regular Club Keno player picked her own numbers based on birthdays and plans to use the prize money to pay bills. She enjoys coaching basketball in her free time.

McIntosh purchased the lucky winning ticket at The Odyssey of Flint, 7039 N. Dort Hwy., in Flint.

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.
