North Kingstown Man Wins $90,000 on his Lunch Break
A North Kingstown man claimed a $90,000 Keno Plus win. He wagered $10.00 on a 7 spot Keno Plus game and matched all 7 spots to win the standard prize of $45,000. However, his prize was multiplied by 2, the Keno Plus number for that drawing, to win $90,000! While on his lunch break, he patiently waited in line to place his wager and was seconds away from missing the draw he won on. But "luck was on my side," he said. He quickly claimed his win at the Lottery Headquarters before returning to work. He plans to use the majority of the money won to pay off the balances on his and his parents' car loans. With the remainder of his win, he plans to seek investment advice from his uncle who is a financial advisor. He purchased the winning ticket at Mendon Road Gulf, 1754 Mendon Rd., Cumberland.
