Oxford woman hits it big

LANSING, May 14, 2008 – Jessica Brooks is a very lucky 20-year-old! She won a $10,008 prize from the Lottery’s Club Keno game!

Brooks bet $2 a draw and matched nine of 10 once and five of 10 two separate times to win the prize.

After checking her numbers with the retailer, Brooks said she was “shocked” by her win. She plans to use the prize money for bills and savings. She enjoys fishing, bowling and art in her free time.

The lucky winning own-pick ticket was purchased at New Martini’s Bar & Grill, 15217 Apollo Circle, in Holly.

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. The Kicker option allows players to multiply their winnings by up to 10 times!

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.
