Keeping a close eye on The Jack paid off for an Ottawa County woman, who won $185,063.
“I was out to lunch and my husband, Darrell, noticed that The Jack was getting pretty high,” said Chris-Ann Martini. “We kept watching here and there and the next thing we knew, The Jack had reset to $10,000.
“I had a lucky feeling, so I walked over to the scanner to check my ticket and then had a co-worker double check it for me with the Lottery app. I was then, and still am, in shock!”
The 46-year-old Martini matched her easy pick The Jack numbers – 08-14-16-20-54-61-64-71 – to eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 1801553. She bought her winning ticket at the Lake Michigan Sports Bar, located at 4072 Lake Michigan Drive Northwest in Walker.
With her winnings, Martini plans to invest in her retirement account.
