“I would rather play Club Keno than go to a casino because your money goes farther,” the player stated. Not only did his money go far, it offered a wonderful return when the player, who prefers anonymity, won $112,761!
The fortunate player was playing Club Keno with The Jack and the Kicker. “I played The Jack because the jackpot had reached such a high amount,” said the winner. The player and his wife placed their wager and then went outside for a break. By the time they returned, the coveted prize had been won. They checked their ticket and discovered that they were the winners!
The Jack, revised in October 2011, offers a starting jackpot of $10,000 and gives players more chances to win by offering prizes for matching four, five, six, seven or eight numbers.
The winning ticket was sold at The Lake Pub LLC located at 1021 4th Ave. in Lake Odessa.
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 2011, the contribution to schools was over $727.3 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed over $16 billion to education in Michigan.
