Battle Creek woman claims Club Keno prize

LANSING, January 21, 2009 – Patricia Jenkins was “stunned” after she realized she matched all eight numbers on an 8-spot Club Keno game. Jenkins won $10,000!

The regular Club Keno player picked her own numbers “based on a hunch.” Jenkins hid the ticket in her purse prior to cashing it at Lottery Central in Lansing. She plans to pay bills and fix her car with her winnings.

Jenkins, 48, purchased the lucky winning ticket at 3rd Base Lounge, 13 Porter, in Battle Creek.

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.
