Club Keno gameplay

Club Keno operates just like any other draw lottery game. However, Club Keno tickets are only available for purchase in-person. That means players will need to locate a retailer that offers Club Keno ticket sales. The Michigan State Lottery provides a retailer search tool here. Once the player has found a retailer, they’ll need to select their numbers and decide whether or not to buy into the additional features of the Club Keno game, Extra, The Kicker, and The Jack. To have the best odds of winning a top-notch payout, players will want to consider opting-in to all the additional special features.

Extra feature

To begin, the Extra feature costs an additional $1 to play alongside the standard Club Keno game. The premise behind the feature is that if the player’s Extra number matches the one drawn, Extra prizes will be awarded. Players can win in both games, as well. However, should the player in both games, the prizes cannot be combined. The player will have to opt for the larger prize of the two in this case. The maximum win amount for an Extra 10-spot wager is $10 million. If multiple players win such a prize, it will be divided equally among them.

The Kicker feature

If a player wins the standard Club Keno game and has also purchased the Kicker option, then their winnings will be multiplied by the Kicker number (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10) for that drawing. The maximum prize for winning a 10-spot wager with a kicker option where the number is 10 is $20 million. If multiple players win such a prize, it will be divided equally among them.

The Jack feature

The Jack is the Club Keno jackpot feature and costs an additional $1 to enter. The jackpot is seeded at $10,000 and will continue to grow until won by one or multiple players. If multiple players win such a prize, it will be divided equally among them.

Summing up Club Keno

Club Keno is a must play, at least once, for players who want to take full advantage of a potential four-win feature. The game is easy to enter, requires no prior knowledge of how to play, and can pay off in a life-changing way.

There are many reasons to play Club Keno with the Michigan Lottery. With four multiplier features, Club Keno players stand to win as much as $20 million.

Lunch date leads to $185K lottery win for Ottawa County woman, winning Club Keno ticket bought in Walker, Michigan

LANSING, MI — Chris-Ann Martini was out to lunch with her husband Darrell when she decided to buy a Club Keno ticket and play The Jack bonus game. After noticing The Jack’s jackpot had reset she got a little anxious and wondered if the unthinkable had happened. Turns out it did.

“I had a lucky feeling, so I walked over to the scanner to check my ticket and then had a co-worker double check it for me with the Lottery app. I was then, and still am, in shock!” Martini said.

The 46-year-old Ottawa County native ended up winning a $185,063 jackpot after she matched all eight of her The Jack numbers – 08-14-16-20-54-61-64-71 – to the 20 numbers drawn in the regular keno game. She bought her ticket at the Lake Michigan Sports Bar, located at 4072 Lake Michigan Drive Northwest in Walker. She visited Michigan Lottery headquarters in Lansing Tuesday to claim her prize.

With her winnings, Martini plans to save the money for her retirement. The Jack is a Club Keno add-on game that allows players to play a bonus game along with their Club Keno wager. Players are given eight random numbers and can win the jackpot if they match all eight numbers among the 20 drawn in a regular Club Keno game. The Jack jackpot starts at $10,000 and resets whenever there is a jackpot winner.
