LANSING, January 13, 2009 – Kathleen Davis of Wyandotte had to check the computer to make sure her Club Keno ticket was a winner! The Lottery player placed a $1 wager on a 10-spot game and matched nine of 10 numbers and played the Kicker, which came up as a 2x multiplier. Her normal pay out of $5,000 was “kicked up” to $10,000. On one other draw, she matched no numbers and won $5, bringing her total winnings for the evening to $10,005!
Davis has no plans for the prize money.
The lucky winning easy-pick ticket was purchased at Eagles #2566, 2459 Dix Highway, in Lincoln 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!
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.
