Hallsville Man Wins $1,307 Playing Keno
A Hallsville man picked some numbers at random, played them in Club Keno and ended up winning $1,307. Gary Exline, 39, said he stopped at IC Billiards in Centralia on Aug. 8 to have a drink and play a game of pool. While there, he bought a Missouri Lottery Club Keno ticket for five consecutive games using 10 numbers he had picked randomly. On the second game, eight of the numbers and the Bulls-Eye were drawn, and Exline won $1,307.
Exline said he plans to use his prize money to pay off some bills.
"I might take a short trip, too," said Exline, who is a clerk at Break Time in Columbia.
Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing in Club Keno. 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.
