Kirbyville Woman Wins $12,500 Playing Club Keno
A Kirbyville woman plans to bank her $12,500 winnings after she won playing the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno game. Lorraine McClease, 53, said she stopped by Doc’s Sports Club, 120 Montgomery in Branson, after work on Sept. 12 to play Club Keno and ended up matching all seven numbers and the Bulls-Eye number to win $12,500.
"I love to play," McClease said about Club Keno. "I always play the same numbers all of the time, but this time I decided to buy an extra one."
McClease, who works at Fall Creek Bakery in Branson, said she normally plays a few numbers in the 60s, but decided to play all of the other numbers in the 60s on a separate ticket. It was with that ticket that she won $12,500. Her winning numbers were: 60, 62, 63, 64, 65, 67 and 69.
McClease said she and her husband, Gary, may use some of her winnings to take a vacation at a later time.
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.
