Potosi Woman Wins $50,000 First Time Playing Club Keno
A 37-year-old Potosi woman says she "fell down" when she realized that she won $50,000 the first time she ever played the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno game. Angela "Lovey" Sansoucie, 37, said she stopped at the Old Car Lounge in French Village to have a drink with her brother on April 24. While there, her brother played Club Keno, so she decided to give it a try, too. Sansoucie played $2 on a 10-spot game and matched nine numbers and the Bulls-Eye to win $50,000.
"I’m going to buy a new truck," she said. "I just totaled my truck a couple of weeks ago."
Sansoucie said she also plans to share some of her prize money with her brother.
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.
