The lucky 52-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $100,000 when his Club Keno numbers – 04-16-19-37-39-57-60-66 – matched eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 1650209 on Nov. 28. Thanks to a 5X Kicker, the player’s prize was multiplied to $500,000. He bought the winning ticket at Captain Joe’s, located at 9901 North Main Street in Whitmore Lake.
“I checked my ticket later in the evening after I bought it and saw I won $500,000,” said the player. “I was pretty shocked!
“Winning this comes at a great time. I just completed some home renovations and now I can make sure they are paid off early. I’ll invest the rest in my small business.”
The player visited Lottery headquarters Tuesday to claim the big prize.
