PERRYVILLE MAN WINS $10,000 PLAYING CLUB KENO
A retired Perryville man can put the finishing touches on his ’86 El Camino after winning $10,000 playing "Club Keno" at the Eagles Club in Perryville Friday night. Larry Hudson, 65, said he played $2 on a seven-spot game and matched all seven numbers to win $10,000. He selected his lucky numbers using family and friends’ ages and other special ages.
"I like to play the seven-spot or the three-spot," he said. "I’ve been playing once or twice a week since it (Club Keno) started."
Hudson said that in addition to fixing up his car, he also plans to use some of his winnings to purchase some fencing.
"Club Keno" began on May 28. Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing.
