Terry Trolz, 24, won the big prize when his easy pick The Jack numbers – 10-18-35-37-40-44-58-65 – matched eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 1680105. He bought his winning ticket at the Minnow Bucket, located at 6015 Ann Arbor Road in Jackson.
“I walked in the store and saw a few of the numbers I usually play had hit,” said Trolz. “I also noticed how high The Jack was, so I decided to buy a ticket.
“When I saw that all eight of my Jack numbers came out, I couldn’t believe it. I thought the ticket was somehow printed wrong or that the screen was showing the wrong numbers because I just couldn’t believe that I had actually won.”
The player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. He plans to save his winnings.
