$35,000 Instant Ticket & $17,000 Keno Plus Wins
February may be over, but a man from Central Falls found some luck with the February birthstone. He claimed a $35,000 prize on an "Amethyst 7's" winning Instant Ticket that he bought at 7-Eleven, 603 Hunt St., Central Falls. The winner immediately came to the Lottery to claim his prize and hadn't made plans for the winnings yet.
A Cranston man won $17,000 playing Keno yesterday at Legends Pub & Grub, 1458 Park Ave, Cranston. He bought a ten spot Quick Pick Ticket and matched nine out of ten numbers. That prize is typically $4,250, but he added Keno Plus to his wager, and the four multiplier was drawn, increasing his prize to $17,000. He said he couldn't believe he won and kept checking the draw numbers to make sure they matched and then reviewing the back of the play slip to figure out his prize. He plans to use the winnings to pay bills and save the rest.
