United States Air Force Retiree Soars to $10,267 Keno Prize

Story Photo audio icon Jerry Taylor is a proud retiree from the United States Air Force.  In his 27 years of service, he said it was his recent Missouri Lottery Club Keno win that "blew me away!"  Taylor, 71, a self-proclaimed regular Keno player at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), 1509 Ashley St. in Columbia, bought a 7-spot Quick Pick ticket on July 26.

"I checked the numbers, and I said, ’Geez, I’ve got five or six numbers here,’" he began.  "I went to the check machine (Check-A-Ticket), and I saw $10,267!"

The win came as a surprise, because he had already won an $800 Club Keno prize earlier in the year.  He also won a $1,300 prize several years prior.
When asked about plans for the prize money, he noted that he will "pay taxes with it."

To play Club Keno, players can choose how many different numbers (also called "spots") they want to play from 1 to 10.  Twenty numbers from a field of 1-80 are chosen in a computerized random Club Keno drawing held every four minutes.
