Jonesburg Man Wins $1,810 Prize Playing Club Keno
Eating lunch helped to make a Jonesburg man more than $1,800 richer. Lonald Barnes, 54, was eating lunch June 20 with his brother at Rookies Bar & Grill, 1544 S. Service Road in Wentzville, when he decided to play Club Keno. His ticket matched five numbers drawn and the Bulls-Eye to win $1,810.
“I saw the numbers coming up and I said, ‘I’ve only got one more number to come up,’ and then there it was 24,” Barnes said.
Barnes said he plans to use the prize money to help pay for new furniture he and his wife, Cathy, just bought.
Club Keno began in May 2002. Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing. For an extra $1, players can chose the Bulls-Eye option and win between $5 and $50 for matching just the Bulls-Eye number. Players can win as much as $300,000 by matching all the numbers and the Bulls-Eye number in a 10-spot game. For more information about Club Keno and the Bulls-Eye feature, go to www.molottery.com
