The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $152,385 when his easy pick The Jack numbers – 13-38-44-52-59-68-76-80 – matched eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 1427717 on Feb. 11. He bought his winning ticket at Bricks of Northville, located at 133 West Main Street in Northville.
“I was on my way out the door at Brick’s and I saw The Jack was getting pretty high, so I decided to buy a ticket,” said the winner. “The next day I went to my favorite party store to check the ticket. When the machine said to see the retailer, I knew I had something good.”
Winning Club Keno The Jack is becoming somewhat routine for the lucky player. He also won a $159,960 Club Keno The Jack prize in August 2016.
“I always play The Jack when I see it get up over $150,000,” said the player. “When I won the first time a buddy and I went in on some tickets so we split the prize. This one is all mine!”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his big prize. With his newfound wealth, he plans to donate to charity and finish a project on his home.
“It feels great to win. I’m not going to go crazy, but I will be treating my family to something nice,” the player added.
