A Saginaw man thought his eyes were playing tricks on him when he checked his Club Keno The Jack ticket and saw he’d won $92,081.
LaVern Hall, Jr., 71, won the big prize when his easy pick The Jack numbers – 18-33-41-45-50-59-62-73 -– matched eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 1381067 Tuesday. He bought his winning ticket at Dollar Bargain, located at 3787 North Michigan Avenue in Saginaw.
“I had to check my ticket three times before I believed what I was seeing,” said Hall. “I still thought I might be reading the ticket wrong, so I took it to a retailer and they confirmed that I had won big.”
Hall visited Lottery headquarters Wednesday to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to buy his daughter a boat, take a vacation, and share the remainder with his family.
“Winning so much is still sinking in, I really just can’t believe it,” Hall said.
