Sedalia Woman Wins $3,000 Club Keno Prize at Coach's
A Sedalia woman got excited when she found out she won $3,000 playing the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno game. Josefina "Josie" Carter, 52, said she was working at Coach’s Sports Bar, 303 S. Lamine in Sedalia, on June 11 when she bought a $1 nine-spot game. She matched eight numbers on her ticket to win $3,000.
Carter plans to use the prize money to help pay for some updates on her home.
"Right now, my house is a mess," she said. "I’m remodeling my house. And I’ll send some money to my mom; she’s 89-years-old and she needs the money."
Carter picked her eight winning numbers at random. They were: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10.
In addition to her recent Club Keno prize, Carter won $1,000 on a "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" ticket she purchased at the beginning of this year. She said she put that prize money in the bank to help pay for an upcoming trip to the Philippines in 2007 to see her family.
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.
