REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Just in time for her 92nd birthday, a Redford woman won $250,000 playing the Michigan Lottery's KENO! game.

The player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched 10 of the 22 numbers drawn Sept. 18.

Her winning numbers were: 05-23-24-25-34-40-53-63-76-78. She bought her winning ticket at the Busch's Fresh Food Market on Pontiac Trail in South Lyon.

The player collected her big prize at Lottery headquarters on Friday and said it would add some excitement to her 92nd birthday party.

When she first checked her ticket, the player thought she'd made a mistake when she saw it was a $250,000 winner. She then called her son, who verified that she'd indeed won the top prize in the KENO! game.

The woman plans to pay off her car and move to a different apartment. She's also got some advice for other Lottery players: "The key to win is positive thinking!"

KENO! tickets may be purchased for $1.
