Jefferson City Man Will Christmas Shop with $5,906 Club Keno Prize

Story Photo audio icon A Jefferson City man is using his $5,906 Missouri Lottery Club Keno prize to “pay bills and Christmas shop.”  Kevin Bax, 49, bought the winning 7-spot Club Keno ticket at Eagles, 1411 Missouri Blvd., in Jefferson City.

The first-time Lottery winner joked that it was “about time” that he won.  He admitted that he didn’t initially realize how much his ticket was worth.

“When I first got it, I thought that I won $100,” he explained.  “I thought that I had six out of seven (numbers), but I missed the 16,” said Bax.

The winning number combination “flashed up there” on the screen once, so he took the ticket to a cashier for confirmation.

After learning that he had actually won a $5,906 prize, he said he was feeling “great.”

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.
