Playing during work was a lucrative activity for one Sedalia business owner who played the Missouri Lottery’s Club Keno and won $10,000. Barbara Priesmeyer, the owner of Barb’s East End Restaurant and Lounge, said she was playing Club Keno on Nov. 7 when she matched all eight numbers on an eight-spot game to win $10,000.
"I’m buying myself a diamond ring for my birthday," said Priesmeyer, who will turn 62 on Dec. 16.
She said she and her husband, Leonard, will also use some of the winnings to help pay for a new home they are currently building.
Club Keno began on May 28. Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing.
