St. Clair Shores, Mich. – A Macomb County man has lined his pockets following a Michigan Lottery Club Keno drawing, winning over $265,000.
The 54-year-old man, who chose to remain anonymous, matched his easy pick ‘The Jack’ numbers to eight of the 20 Club Keno numbers.
He bought his winning ticket at Z’s Pub in Saint Clair Shores.
“I play Club Keno often and like to add The Jack to my ticket when it gets high,” he said. “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.”
After visiting the lottery headquarters to claim his prize, he plans to pay off his home and save the rest of the money.
“Winning is life-changing. It will allow me to live comfortably and not have to stress about finances,” he said.
Club Keno and the add-on ‘The Jack’ game can be played at 10,500 Michigan Lottery retailers across the state. Drawings take place every three and a half minutes.
