A lucky Michigan Lottery Players Club member turned a free play coupon she earned with reward points into a $50,265 Club Keno The Jack prize.
The Lansing woman, who chose to remain anonymous, used a $6 Club Keno free play coupon to purchase a four-spot Club Keno ticket with The Jack good for three draws. The player matched the eight winning The Jack numbers drawn – 02-03-09-12-44-53-60-62 – in drawing number 1136942 to win $50,265 earlier this month. She bought her lucky ticket at Gorman’s Food Market, located at 2800 North Grand River Avenue in Lansing.
