LANSING, November 21, 2008 – Nancy Schlosser, a teacher from Monroe, screamed and cried when she matched all eight numbers on an 8-spot Club Keno ticket. The lucky woman won $10,000.
Schlosser hid the winning ticket in her husband’s pants pocket until she claimed the prize at the Lottery’s Dearborn Heights office. She plans to buy windows for her house with the prize money.
The lucky easy-pick ticket was purchased at Nortel Lanes, 611 N. Telegraph, in Monroe.
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 2008, the contribution to schools was $740.7 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
