Doubler Days Returns to Club Keno in September

The Michigan Lottery is giving players a chance to double their fun and their winnings in September when the popular Doubler Days promotion returns to Club Keno.

All month long, Club Keno tickets purchased at Lottery retailers statewide are eligible for Doubler Days. Players have a chance to receive a Doubler message printed on tickets which will double all prizes won on that ticket, without any additional cost. The Jack prizes and Club Keno Extra eight of 10, nine of 10, and 10 of 10 prizes are excluded from the promotion.

To qualify for double winnings, tickets must be eligible Club Keno or Club Keno Extra prize winners. Receiving a Doubler message alone does not denote a win. If a player purchases a multi-draw ticket and receives a Doubler message, all eligible winnings for all the drawings on that ticket are doubled.
