Michigan Lottery Club Keno's 'The Jack' Breaks Record

Since its conception 14 years ago on June 1st, 2009, 'The Jack' has been a popular add-on game to Michigan Lottery's extremely popular game, Club Keno. And, up until Tuesday, August 1st, 2023, the largest win in the game's history was $448,055, won back in July 2014.

And, although the prize pool has grown in to the six-digit range multiple times since then, it had never gotten quite that high since. That is, until recently.

'The Jack' Makes History Once Again

Earlier this week, when the Jackpot reached the $400,000+ mark, things began to get crazy. The pot was going up approximately $250 per draw for the last week or so, thanks to all the Michigan gamblers chasing the dream and hoping for that one lucky draw to fall their way.

Well, it finally happened! And the rest is history.
