Birthdays Bring $15,000 Keno Win
A Providence man won $15,000 on a Keno Plus ticket that he bought at Gulf Express, 255 Reservoir Ave., Providence. He played nine numbers using a combination of birthdays and matched eight out of nine. The standard payout for matching eight out of nine numbers on a $1 Keno wager is $3,000, but he added the Plus for an additional $1 and his prize was multiplied by five to equal $15,000. The winner said he will use the winnings to pay bills.
