It was Halloween night when Arctic Breakaway’s bartender, Olivia Willis, hit the big jackpot with her Club Keno Jackpot easy pick numbers.

“I didn’t even know how much I had won until I went into the lottery office the next day,” said Willis.

Donned in her costume for Halloween night, Willis said it was hard to take her lottery win seriously that evening when the numbers hit. She said the only clue she had to her jackpot came when she ran her ticket and the ticket reader said to see lottery office to claim prize.

According to the Michigan Lottery website, Willis’s jackpot win for the evening was $44,324.

Willis said she is getting married in May and with the holiday season approaching, winning the jackpot could not have come at a better time.

Willis has worked at Arctic Breakaway Restaurant and Bar for the past four years.

Arctic Breakaway is located on the second floor of the Arctic Coliseum in Chelsea and offers a family- friendly sports bar atmosphere. Whether it is watching a sporting event on one of the twenty-eight televisions or watching live hockey action overlooking the ice rink below, there is something for everyone.

General Manager of Arctic Breakaway, Josh Glaspie, said there is always something exciting planned at Breakaway. Glaspie said Breakaway offers 50 cent wings during major games, $1 pint domestic drafts during sports games and live entertainment on Friday evenings beginning at 8pm. He also added brunch is served daily from open-3pm.
