LANSING, August 12, 2008 – Timothy Stuker told Lottery officials that his $10,000 Club Keno win made him “smile for the rest of the day”!
The regular Lottery player matched nine of 10 numbers and played the Kicker. His normal $5,000 prize was multiplied by 2X.
Stuker plans to use the prize money to pay bills and get his own apartment. In his free time, he enjoys golf, poker, tennis and karaoke.
The lucky winning own-pick ticket was purchased at Red Ox Tavern, 3773 E. Walton Blvd., in Auburn Hills.
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.
