Persistence with her own set of Missouri Lottery numbers is finally paying off for Vicki Knox of Blue Springs. While visiting their favorite Blue Springs locale on Nov. 20, Knox and her husband, Dennis, purchased their regular order of Club Keno 8-spot tickets with the Bulls-Eye feature.

“We go to Clancy’s four or five times a week. It’s kind of like that show Cheers; everyone knows your name,” said Knox, referring to Clancy’s Café and Pub, 800 NW South Outer Road, in Blue Springs. “We like to play Keno when we are there because it’s good cheap entertainment that doesn’t cost as much as going to the movies.”

Knox continued, saying that almost every time she and her husband play Keno, it’s usually an 8-spot ticket with Bulls-Eye and the same numbers each time – 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 18, 19 and 20 with a Bulls-Eye number of 8.

“I just like those numbers. There’s no strategy to it,” disclosed Knox.

When the Keno drawing took place shortly after purchasing their tickets, the Knox couple quickly realized they had matched all eight of their numbers and the Bulls-Eye number, bringing them a $50,000 prize.

When playing Keno, players choose how many numbers, or “spots,” they would like to play from one to 10. When playing Club Keno, 6-, 7- and 8-spot games feature their own rolling Progressive Jackpot. When 6-, 7- and 8-spot players match all their numbers, they also win the progressive jackpot in addition to their prize. In Knox’s case, the progressive jackpot was worth $16,558. Knox had a separate winning ticket worth $4, which brought her total prize to $66,562.

Knox plans to keep everything simple with the prize by placing it all in their savings account.

“Considering how much we play, this will last us at least 20 years,” laughed Knox.

For selling the winning ticket, Clancy’s Café and Pub will receive $665.62 – equal to 1 percent of the total prize.

To play Club Keno, players can choose how many different numbers (also called “spots”) they want to play from 1 to 10. Twenty numbers from a field of one to 80 are chosen in a computerized random Club Keno drawing held every four minutes.  To learn more about Club Keno or any of the Missouri Lottery games, visit MOLottery.com.
