Each Friday and Saturday night at Northville Downs, one lucky harness racing patron is selected to play one of two exciting games where the contestants can win up to $100,000 in cash. Friday nights are Royal Flush Fridays where contestants choose five cards from a game board and try to match a royal flush for $100,000 or four of a kind worth $25,000, or a full house worth $1,000.

On Lucky Seven Saturdays one lucky contestant has a chance to correctly select the first seven finishers in a designated live race. Seven correct pays $100,000, six correct pays $25,000, andfive correct pays $1,000.

On Saturday, April 9, Shirley Montville of Westland, Mich., had her chance on the 11th race and she chose the numbers of 5-3-8-6-7-4-2.

At 10:14 p.m. after a thrilling finish, the photo sign on the tote board illuminated. It was a win photo between numbers five and three. After the stewards reviewed the photo finish the results of the race were posted. The correct order of finish was 5-3-8-6-7-4-9. Shirley Montville was ecstatic, as was the entire clubhouse at Northville Downs, as fans roared with excitement, knowing she had just won $25,000 in cash!

Northville Downs offers live racing each Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00 p.m. through Saturday, April 30. For more information call 248.349.1000 or visit
