$16,400 Keno Plus Win
$10,000 PowerBall® Ticket Claimed
A gentleman from Portsmouth won $16,400 playing Keno Plus at Vickers Liquor, 274 Bellevue Ave., Newport. He wagered $10 on a 5-spot game and matched 5 out of 5 numbers to win a standard payout of $4,100. However, he doubled his base wager and added Keno Plus, so when the 4 multiplier came up, his winnings turned into $16,400! He just purchased a new house, so he'll put some of the money towards that.
Additionally, one of the $10,000 winning PowerBall® tickets from Saturday's drawing has been claimed by couple from Middletown. They plan to put most of it towards bills. The Quick Pick ticket was purchased at Colbea Enterprises, 138 Connell Hwy., Newport.
Tomorrow's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $235 million.
