Potosi Carpenter Builds Up $12,500 Winnings
A Potosi carpenter has an extra $12,500 after he and his wife played Club Keno on Aug. 25. Jeffrey "Jeff" Pashia, 44, said he has been playing Keno for the past few months. On Aug. 25, he and his wife, Phyllis, were on their sixth Club Keno game at Heritage Lanes LLC in Potosi, when they matched all seven numbers and the Bulls-Eye number to win $12,500.
"We were pretty tickled," he said.
Pashia said they picked the winning numbers at random.
Though Pashia said he doesn’t know what he will do with his prize money yet, he said he "will probably find something to do with it." He said his son is getting married this weekend, and he will probably "get a little of it."
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.
