Couple Vacationing in RI Wins $18,004 Playing Keno Plus
Robert Trahan from Glen Rock, New Jersey, accompanied by his wife, claimed an $18,004 Keno Plus win. He wagered $20 on five 7 spot Keno Plus games. He matched all 7 spots on the second game to win the standard prize of $9,000. But, to his surprise, his prize was multiplied by 2, the Keno Plus number for that drawing, to win $18,000 on that draw! He also matched 2 spots on the following two drawings he played, winning $2 on each, for an additional $4. The couple was thrilled about their win. They had been staying with friends in Rhode Island and stopped by the Lottery Headquarters to claim their prize on their way back home. They plan to use the money won to purchase a new car. The Wheel House, 294 Great Island Rd., Narragansett sold the winning ticket.
