Hamilton Man Wins $25,000 Keno Prize
A Hamilton man is $25,000 richer after he won playing the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno game at McCorkles, 109 W. Third in Cameron, on May 6. This was the second time Dale Carr, a retired TWA employee, has won $25,000 playing a Missouri Lottery game; he won $25,000 tax paid on July 14, 1995, playing the Lottery’s former SHOW ME 5 game.
"I saw I got the Bulls-Eye, but then I started noticing all of the other numbers I matched, too," Carr said. "It was hard to believe."
Carr, 71, said he selected his winning numbers by playing birthdays and anniversaries. His nine winning numbers were: 3, 9, 13, 19, 21, 28, 35, 52 and 55.
Carr said he plans to share his windfall with his two grown children. He also said he plans to buy a newer used vehicle to replace his 1996 Ford Windstar.
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.
