Two Huge Keno Wins!
West Warwick Woman Wins $20,500 and Charlestown Woman wins $15,000
A West Warwick woman was excited to cash in her $20,500 Keno Plus ticket she played on Friday at Wonderland Smoke Shop in Warwick. She wagered $10 on a 5-spot game for a standard payout of $4,100. However, the winner played the Plus feature so her prize multiplied by 5, the Keno Plus number for that game, to equal $20,500. She plans to save her winnings.
Additionally, a Charlestown woman said she was overcome once she realized she won a total of $15,000 playing Keno. The winner bought her ticket at Downey Weaver Post in Charlestown where she wagered $1 on 7 spots. She hit all 7 of her numbers for the standard payout of $4,500. However, she opted for the Plus feature, which multiplied her prize by 2, the Keno Plus number for that game, doubling her winnings to $9,000. Adding to that, she had also played Multi Chance Keno and matched 7 out of the 7 numbers on one of the bonus games, increasing the standard $4,500 prize to $6,000. The winner plans to use the money won to pay bills and maybe buy a car.
