Georgia Resident Cashes in on Missouri Lottery Club Keno

Going home – or a friend’s home, in this case – for the holidays has never cashed in quite like it did for an Alpharetta, Ga., resident over the recent holiday. Sheila Shafie was visiting friends in Eureka over the holidays when she purchased a Progressive 7-spot Double Bulls-Eye Missouri Lottery Club Keno ticket from JP’s Sports Bar and Grill, 95 Hilltop Village Center Drive in Eureka, on Dec. 28.

“We realized I had won, but didn’t realize how much I had won,” began Shafie, who won a $38,722 prize. “Originally, we thought it was about half the amount, until the (clerk) told us how much it was.”

Shafie, who regularly plays the Georgia Lottery’s Keno Draw Game, used her own combination of lucky numbers – 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 58 and 59 – to win her $38,722 prize.

By the time the 28-year-old realized she had won a significant prize, the entire bar knew about the win, and Shafie bought everyone drinks to celebrate.

While claiming her prize on Dec. 29, Shafie had yet to make any definite plans on how she would spend her prize, other than paying off debt.
For selling a Club Keno ticket of $10,000 or more, JP’s Sports Bar and Grill received a selling bonus equal to 1 percent of the prize. In this case, the retail location received a bonus of $387.22.

To play Club Keno, players choose how many different numbers (also called “spots”) they want to play from 1 to 10. Twenty numbers from a field of one to 80 are chosen in a computerized random Club Keno drawing held every four minutes.  The Draw Game includes a variety of additional features, such as the free progressive jackpot for 6-, 7- and 8-spot games for a chance to win an additional rolling jackpot.
