The reality of winning a $158,579 Club Keno The Jack jackpot still hasn’t sunk in for a Muskegon County man.
The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched his easy pick The Jack numbers – 23-27-39-50-53-59-61-78 – to eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 1934158. He bought his winning ticket at the Muskegon Recreation Club, located at 1763 Lakeshore Drive in Muskegon.
“I like to play the Club Keno game and decided to add The Jack to my ticket,” said the 56-year-old player. “A while later, I looked up at the screen and noticed The Jack had gone back down to $10,000. I scanned my ticket on the Lottery app and started shaking when I saw I’d won.
“It still doesn’t feel like this is real.”
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and invest.
