Warsaw Woman Cashes In On New Club Keno Features
A Warsaw woman was hoping to learn more about the new Club Keno features the same day the game’s changes took effect on Jan. 16. Golda Beck, 42, learned all about the new Multiplier and Progressive jackpot prize features when she won $10,060, thanks to both features.
Beck matched six numbers playing a 6-spot game and turned her $1,000 base prize into $10,000 when the Multiplier number drawn turned out to be 10. In addition to her already bigger prize, Beck won an additional $60 with the Progressive jackpot prize feature.
Beck purchased her winning ticket at Big Dan’s Farmer’s Inn, 118 E. Main St. in Lincoln, where she is a bartender. Her winning numbers were 7, 20, 27, 30, 47 and 57. The Multiplier number was 10.
Trying out the new Club Keno features turned out to be exciting for Beck.
"I was overwhelmed," Beck said. "I had to sit down."
Beck plans to pay bills and invest some of her prize, but she hasn’t forgotten a special request from her two-year-old granddaughter, Mykale.
"I guess she’ll get her pink slide," Beck said.
Beck explained that her granddaughter had asked for a pink slide for Christmas, but Beck was unable to locate a slide that fit the bill. She said now she will be able to find a pink slide for Mykale by her third birthday in April.
The Club Keno Multiplier feature gives players the option, for an extra $1 per $1 play, to win up to 10 times the prize amount on all Club Keno base prizes. Prior to each five-minute Keno drawing, a wheel is spun to determine the Multiplier number. Players can win 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times the usual amount - up to $1 million.
Club Keno players who play the six-, seven- and eight-spot games are automatically eligible - with no additional costs - to win the extra Progressive jackpot prize. Players can win this progressive prize along with the regular prize on a six-, seven-, or eight-spot game. If the jackpot is not won during the drawing, it will continue to grow until it is won. The Progressive jackpot is pari-mutuel, so players will share the jackpot, based on the amount and the number of winning shares in each prize category.
