Lake St. Louis Group Named October Lottery Team of the Month
Congratulations to "The BPI Lottery Team" of Lake St. Louis! The group has been named the Lottery Team of the Month for October as part of the Missouri Lottery’s 2006 Lottery Captain’s promotion. The promotion awards a Lottery players’ group with prizes and a feature at Molottery.com each month during the calendar year.
"The BPI Lottery Team" is a group of 13 co-workers from Bankcard Processing International in Lake St. Louis. The members are: Kerry Keller (team captain) and Pat Reynolds, both of O’Fallon; Lori Hindman and Patty Berryman, both of Wright City; Jimmy Vitale, Creve Coeur; Karen Beinhorn, Maria House, Jeff Maine and Tammi Bail, all of Wentzville; Lindsay Frahm and Brandon Moon, both of St. Charles; Ken Maine, Lake St. Louis; and Jarod Waid, St. Peters.
The group started playing together in July when Keller suggested they start a team. Hindman had heard about the Lottery’s Team of the Month promotion, and signed up the group when she joined. "The BPI Lottery Team" members each contribute $2 for Powerball and $1 for Lotto for each drawing. They use Quick Pick to let the computer choose their lucky numbers.
Keller usually purchases the team’s tickets and keeps them in between drawings. He makes copies of the tickets for each team member. Hindman said "The BPI Lottery Team" keeps things simple and doesn’
t have any rules for the team.
"If you want to play, you play," Hindman said. "We use the Lottery Captain tools (from Molottery.com) to keep track of who is in." The largest prize "The BPI Lottery Team" has won was $30. They put it back into the pool for the next drawing.
"We all decided to use the prize to play again," Hindman said. "Unless we win a significant amount, we’ll just play again."
Although "The BPI Lottery Team" hasn’t won a jackpot yet, they keep playing in hope of winning big someday. If they hit the jackpot, they plan to take a cruise to the Bahamas to celebrate.
"We’re big dreamers around here," Hindman said.
