The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, won the big prize when his easy pick The Jack numbers – 04-06-17-20-24-53-67-77 – matched eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 1655367. He bought his winning ticket at the Venice Supper Club, located at 113 North Second Street in Ishpeming.
“I bought my ticket, but wasn’t really paying attention to the drawings,” said the 72-year-old winner. “Someone noticed The Jack was hit, so I checked my ticket and couldn’t believe it when I saw that I had won.
“I don’t plan on doing anything different since winning the Lottery, but this prize will allow me to worry less about finances.”
The player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and then save the remainder.
