Welcome to Kenotes a publication for bars, taverns, restaurants and clubsselling the Ohio Lottery KENO game.

It’s summer full steam ahead, and with that the Ohio Lottery is bringing back its Keno Happy Hour promotion as a customer reward in July. Encourage both new and regular customers to stop by your location to play Keno on Fridays and Saturdays starting July 7. We’ve got full details on page 5.

Calling all Keno Certified Experts! You can look forward to a series of perks starting in June and running throughout the fall. It pays to be part of the Keno Expert experience. See page 9 to learn more.

EZPLAY® Games, especially progressive EZPLAY® Games, continue to gain traction at many Ohio Lottery bar/tavern outlets. See page 11 to find out where some of the most recent Twenty 20’s and Quick Spot jackpots have been won. Post the information for customers to see. Customers love to see where these big winners are sold!

Interested in running a special terminal-generated Keno promotion? The Ohio Lottery has a new wave of promotional “buy some, get one” opportunities you’re sure to like. Talk to your sales representative to see what options might be available to you. This month’s featured business, Kings Table Bar & Grill in Beavercreek, has done just that.

Enjoy your customers and have a safe and happy summer! Paulette and Janice split a $6,000 Tap

game win at the American Legion Post #420, Murray City.

Kenotes ! Summer 2017

Retailer Spotlight: Kings Table Bar & Grill, BeavercreekDean Liakakos, the owner of Kings Table Bar & Grill, grew up in the family restaurant and bar business. Kings Table opened in 1978.

He calls his bartenders Kat and Shaundra his mainstays when it comes to Keno and other Lottery games. Dean was recruited by sales representative Melissa Bowen in 2014. The addition of the MP vending machine convinced him of the benefit of becoming an Ohio Lottery retailer. Adding vending allowed customers to make their own purchases and made the responsibility of the wait staff easier. He has 23 employees.

Dean also has the new MPQK vending machine that’s been in pilot testing around the state.

How Dean describes his customersDean calls his clientele a “diverse group of people.” Kings Table Bar & Grill is located near the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base; and so, there are a lot of military personnel and veterans who patronize his business. The bar attracts students from Wright State University, including a fair number of international students too.

Advice for the LotteryDean would like the QuicKeno games loaded on the MPQK to offer more winners. “Loosen it up and let them win a bit,” he says. He believes even $5 and $10 wins would make many of his customers happy, and he knows that many players will continue to play with their winnings.

Participation in promotions for Keno playOver the past year, his sales representative Melissa Bowen has worked with staff to offer a regular schedule of promotions to encourage Lottery game play. In its most recent terminal promotion, Kings Table offered customers a $1, 2-spot play with Booster for free with a $10 purchase of Keno. The promotion ran on Mondays in November from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Kings Table took part in one of the Lottery’s QuicKeno parties held at select MPQK retailers this spring. The QuicKeno parties enabled Lottery staff to introduce customers to these new Ohio Lottery games and gauge their interest in other games offered in the bar/tavern setting. Melissa says about 50 customers participated.

“When customers are offered a free opportunity, they are happy to take it,” Dean says.

Kings Table’s rules on playing Lottery gamesDean does not allow his employees to play Lottery while on the job.

Dean’s favorite part of owning a bar“It’s nice to see people having a good time. That’s the number one reward,” he says.

Shaundra. They take the

Tech Talk:Need to reboot your MP vending machine?Here’s how:

• Enter the Retailer Menu on your MP vending machine.

• Press “Retailer Manager.”

• Enter your password and press “Submit.”

• Now, you’re at the Retailer Manager Main Menu.

• Press “Miscellaneous.”The Miscellaneous screen includes a Reboot Terminal button.

• Press “Reboot Terminal.”

• A window confirming the reboot (Yes/No) appears.

• Press “yes”.

You’ve now rebooted your MP vending machine safely. Any other method will damage the machine’s hard drive.
