The 45-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, won $20,000 when his Club Keno numbers – 01-03-04-07-11-16-24-29 – matched eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers drawn in draw 2242363 on Sept. 5. Thanks to The KICKER, the prize was multiplied to $200,000. He bought his winning ticket at County Fair Market, located at 22828 Dequindre Road in Warren.
“I got a text from a friend asking if I won big playing Club Keno because he saw a $200,000 prize was won at the store I usually buy my tickets from,” said the player. “I’d just bought a Club Keno ticket from that store, so I pulled it out of my pocket and scanned it on the Lottery app.
“When the winning amount came up on the screen, all I could think was: ‘Wow it really was me!’ I’d never won a big prize like this, so it was pretty unbelievable!”
The lucky player recently visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize.
“I plan to use my winnings to start a business and start building my empire,” the player said.
