KENNETT WOMAN WINS $30,000 PLAYING CLUB KENO

Story Photo A retired Kennett woman won $30,000 playing "Club Keno" on Saturday. Geneva White, 71, won the second-highest top prize in the game with a ticket she purchased at Eagles in Kennett.

White matched all nine numbers on a nine-spot game to win $30,000. She used Quick Pick to select her winning numbers.

"I thought I won $3,000 and so did the (clerk)," White said. "But when we counted all the zeros, we realized that it was $30,000. I still can’t believe it."

White said she plans to use some of her winnings to pay doctor bills.

"Club Keno" began on May 28. Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing.
