Mortimer's Co-Workers Share $5,000 Keno Prize
Two Jefferson City co-workers are sharing more than the workload after they won $5,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno on Dec. 1. Tracey Osborne, 40, was working that night at Mortimer Kegley’s, where she is the manager, and Georgi Forman, 25, a bartender, was there visiting when they both contributed $5 to play 10 draws on a 10-spot game, $1 per game. To their surprise, nine numbers matched in one of the drawings, and together they won $5,000.
When asked what they will use the prize money for, both chimed in unison,"Christmas!"
The two co-workers say they have both played the Club Keno game since it began in May of 2002.
Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing. For more information on the game, go to www.molottery.com.
