RI Lottery winnerJohnston Man Plans to Use Keno Plus Win to Surprise Wife with a New Car

A man from Johnston, was excited to cash in a $47,250 Keno Plus win. He wagered $5 on five 7-spot games and opted to add the Keno Plus feature to each bet for a total wager amount of $30. On the first game, he won $15. On the second game, he won $22,500, but because he played Keno Plus, his prize was multiplied by 2, the Keno Plus number for that draw, equaling $45,000. On the third game, he won $5, on the fourth game he won $2,050, and on the fifth game he won $180, for a total win of $47,250. He said the numbers he played came to mind while he was driving, so he stopped at PJ's Pub, 1139 Pontiac Ave, Cranston, and played them. He had not told anyone the news of his win yet. After cashing in his win, he plans to go to the car dealership and surprise his wife by buying her a new car.
