LANSING, March 13, 2009 – Joan, a Suttons Bay woman, claimed a $100,000 Club Keno prize! She matched all 10 numbers in the 10-spot game to win the prize.
Joan saw the numbers come up on the screen and immediately told her husband – who didn’t exactly believe her until they scanned the ticket!
The longtime Lottery player plans to use the prize money to pay bills and keep the rest in the bank.
The lucky winning easy-pick ticket was purchased at The Lucky Duck Tavern, 201 St. Joseph, in Suttons Bay.
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.
