LANSING, March 26, 2009 – A lucky Muskegon man is $10,000 richer after playing the Lottery’s Club Keno game. Gary Cole matched eight of eight numbers to win the prize.
The regular Lottery player saw all eight numbers come up on the Club Keno screen and was excited with his win. He has no special plans for his prize money.
Cole purchased the lucky winning own-ticket at Northside Sports Page, 1271 Holton Rd., in Muskegon.
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.
