Someone on staff at the Post Office Bar & Grill, 100 W. Fifth St. in Fulton, almost got to take home a tip that would have, no doubt, been the largest of their career. Edward Kodman of Naperville, Ill., had decided he’d leave what he thought to be $10-15 worth of winning Missouri Lottery Club Keno tickets as a tip; but he was in for a huge surprise when he had the two tickets scanned and realized they were worth a total of $18,530.
No one on staff ended up with the massive tip, but Kodman said the workers at the bar, which he visits about twice a year when he’s in town, are “very nice people.”
“It’s funny,” he continued. “While they were printing out my winning tickets, they were telling me about a girl who had just won $1,800 there on Sunday.”
Club Keno has drawings every four minutes. Players can choose from a variety of play methods by selecting how many “spots,” or numbers, they wish to play. Kodman played 7-spot games and selected his own set of numbers, using family birthdays, the number on his baseball uniform and his anniversary on both of his winning tickets.
Traditional Club Keno is available at social environment locations like restaurants, bars and fraternal organizations. It is also now offered at convenience stores, grocery stores and similar locations as “Keno To Go.”
