Eastpointe resident claims $10,000 prize

LANSING, January 13, 2009 – Margaret Grover of Eastpointe won big at Club Keno! The long-time Lottery player placed a $2 wager on a 10-spot game and matched nine of 10 numbers. Because she placed a $2 wager, a normal pay out of $5,000 was doubled to bring her total winnings for the night to $10,000!

Grover gave the ticket to her husband right away for safe keeping prior to cashing it at the Lottery’s Sterling Heights office. She plans to pay bills with the prize money.

The lucky winning own-pick ticket was purchased at Juliano’s Restaurant, 27380 Van Dyke, in Warren.
