Rolla Woman Wins Late Christmas Present

Story Photo A 27-year-old Rolla woman said she got 2004 off to a "great start" after winning $5,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno at Moose Lodge, 14595 Country Road 7100, in Rolla. On Saturday night, Dec. 27, Valerie Strange said she arrived for work as a bartender at Moose Lodge about 15 minutes early, so she bought a Club Keno ticket.

"I got really busy after starting work, so I wasn’t paying attention to the drawings," she said.

Strange said she later ran her ticket through the Numbers Game terminal to check it and discovered it was worth $5,000. She used birthdays and lucky numbers to select the winning numbers on her seven-spot ticket.

Strange said she plans to use her winnings to buy a car.

Club Keno began in May 2002. Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing. Players who use Bulls-Eye could win between $2 and $50 for matching just the Bulls-Eye number and as much as $300,000 by matching all 10 numbers, including the Bulls-Eye number, in a 10-spot $1 game. See Club Keno for more information  and the Bulls-Eye feature
