Jefferson City Woman Wins $5,000 Christmas Gift

Story Photo A Jefferson City woman collected her belated Christmas present today after winning a $5,000 prize playing the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno Numbers game at the Elks Lodge, 901 Ellis Blvd. in Jefferson City. Sharon McFerron, 46, said she was playing Club Keno on Dec. 27 when she won the prize.

"At first I thought I had only five of the numbers, but then I saw the other two and couldn’t believe it," McFerron said. "I started yelling I was so excited. Everybody was so excited for me."

McFerron said she and her husband, Harvey, have no immediate plans for their winnings and plan to put it in the bank for now. She used birthdays to select her winning numbers on the seven-spot game. The winning numbers were: 1, 5, 8, 9, 10, 17 and 27.

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.
