OSAGE BEACH MAN WINS $5,000 ON BIRTHDAY
An Osage Beach man used numbers from his birthday on his birthday and ended up winning $5,000 cash playing Club Keno. Tim Tyrcha said he and his wife, Miriam, stopped at Risky’s Pizza & Spirits in Lake Ozark on Jan. 24 for a cocktail to celebrate his 57th birthday. While there, he used a combination of seven numbers from his and his wife’s birthdays and the date of their wedding anniversary to play a 7-spot game. Tyrcha won the $5,000 prize on the first of five games he played. The winning numbers were: 1, 8, 11, 23, 24, 44 and 46.
Tyrcha, who is a retired engineer for Southwestern Bell, said he plans to use some of his winnings to buy a new computer.
Club Keno began on May 28. Players can win from $1 to $100,000 per $1 ticket per drawing.
