A Macomb County man is looking forward to living comfortably after winning a $265,459 Club Keno The Jack prize from the Michigan Lottery.
The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched his easy pick The Jack numbers – 03-04-06-26-35-37-43-52 – to eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 2098290. He bought his winning ticket at Z’s Pub, located at 22512 Greater Mack Avenue in Saint Clair Shores.
“I play Club Keno often and like to add The Jack to my ticket when it gets high,” said the 54-year-old player. “I purchased a ticket when I got to Z’s Pub and noticed a few minutes later The Jack had reset to $10,000. I thought: ‘Darn it, not again,’ because the last few times I’ve played The Jack, someone had won it shortly after. I started looking my ticket over and couldn’t believe it when I saw I was the big winner.”
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay off his home and then save the remainder.
“Winning is life changing. It will allow me to live comfortably and not have to stress about finances,” the player said.
