Marceline Man Wins $1,001 Playing Keno
A 46-year-old Marceline man is $1,001 richer after playing Club Keno on Nov. 13. John Gooch said he was at the Eagles, 301 N. Chestnut in Marceline, watching the University of Missouri football game when he played five six-spot games. The last game was the $1,001 winner.
Gooch said he got his lucky six numbers from a fortune cookie message on Nov. 12.
"A friend of mine told me to play them," he said.
Gooch, who works for Walsworth Publishing in Marceline, said he plans to use some of his prize money to pay taxes.
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.
