Overland Man Wins $10,000 on Day Off, Payday
An Overland man had an extra good day on Dec. 7; it was payday, his day off and he won $10,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno game. James "Jim" Quentin, 62, said a co-worker, the head foreman with his construction job, called and asked if he wanted to meet him at the Penalty Box, 11453 St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton. Quentin said he met him there for about an hour, but then the foreman had to get back to work. Right after he left, Quentin played Club Keno and ended up winning $10,000.
"I will probably put some in the bank," he said. "I’ll also give some to the head foreman, the waitress at the Penalty Box, my brother and a friend."
Quentin said this is the second big Club Keno prize won at the Penalty Box.
"They (Penalty Box employees) said a woman won $10,500 about six months ago," said Quentin.
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.
