LANSING, August 12, 2008 – Karl Malinchak, a 21-year-old from Clinton Twp., won $50,000 when he played Club Keno!
Malinchak played the Kicker, and matched nine of 10 numbers. When the Kicker showed up as a 10X, he multiplied his normal $5,000 payout to a whopping $50,000!
The regular Club Keno player was “esctatic” with his win. He picked his own numbers and plans to purchase a car and go back to school with his prize money.
Malinchak purchased his lucky winning ticket at Hazel Park Bowl, 24211 Hughes, in Hazel Park.
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!
