LANSING, December 22, 2008 – Christen Sherwood of Lansing won big in Club Keno! The long-time Lottery player placed a $2 wager on a 9-spot game and matched eight of nine numbers. She also played the Kicker, which came up as a 10x multiplier. Her normal pay out of $4,000 was “kicked up” to a whopping $40,000. On one other draw, she matched four of nine numbers and with a 2x kicker won $8, bringing her total winnings for the evening to $40,008.

Sherwood put the winning ticket in her daughter’s safe prior to cashing it at the Lottery’s Lansing office. She plans to use the prize money for her retirement.
