David Kramer’s intention on July 29 was to enjoy a nice dinner with his wife, Mary, at Sheehan’s on the Green in Plymouth. However as the couple began their meal, Mary noticed that The Jack was over $350,000! Mary insisted that David play Club Keno with The Jack.
Kramer bought his ticket and proceeded to enjoy dinner with his wife while the ten draws he purchased played out. When they finished eating, Kramer was content with the money he won; his winnings were enough to cover their dinner bill and the cost of his ticket. Having enjoyed a nice dinner and his Club Keno prize money, Kramer was ready to go home.
Kramer’s wife however, was neither as content nor as ready to go home when she saw that The Jack prize amount was continuing to increase. Mary insisted to her husband that he had to buy one more ticket before they went home; Kramer purchased another ticket with The Jack and headed home with his wife.
The next day the Kramer’s checked their ticket on the Lottery Web site while visiting friends and could not believe their eyes after seeing that their numbers were the same as the winning numbers on the Web site! They all were overcome with joy as the Kramer’s had the ticket worth $356,901!
With their prize money the Kramer’s plan to do some home improvements and use the remaining amount to supplement David’s retirement which is fast approaching in just a little less than three years!
The winning ticket was sold at Sheehan’s on the Green located at 39450 Five Mile Rd. in Plymouth.
