Belle Bartender Wins $2,400
A bartender from Belle is $2,400 richer after she won two times in a row playing Club Keno. Rose Gassel, 43, purchased both of her tickets at Tail Spin Bar & Grill in Belle. The first ticket turned out to be a $925 winner and the next one was worth $1,475.
"I’m always lucky at this game," said Gassel, when she claimed her prize at Missouri Lottery headquarters on Monday.
Gassel said she planned to use some of the money to pay bills, buy some Christmas gifts and go out to eat with her boyfriend.
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.
