Another $100,000 Rhode Island Keno Winner
On Sunday, one lucky Keno player hit big at Wright’s Farm Restaurant in Harrisville! The winning ticket was a $5-10 spot wager placed over five games. So, each game was a $1-10 spot wager. In one of these five games, the player matched all ten of his or her numbers. The standard payout for this type of win is $100,000. This big ticket has yet to be claimed.
Just a few weeks ago, on February 29th, a Johnston woman claimed a $105,000 winning Keno ticket. She played a one dollar eight spot bet and matched all eight numbers. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,500. However, this player opted to purchase the Keno Plus feature for an additional dollar on the wager, so the $10,500 prize was multiplied by ten, that draw’s Keno Plus number, to equal $105,000.
The $105,000 winning ticket was purchased from Don’s Market at 1219 Atwood Ave., Johnston.
