Central Falls Man Wins $22,500 Playing Keno
A man from Central Falls claimed a $22,500 Keno Plus prize from a drawing earlier today. He wagered $1 on a 7-spot game, picked all seven numbers himself, and won $4,500 when each of those numbers was drawn. However, the winner had doubled his wager adding Keno Plus, so his prize was multiplied by 5, the Keno Plus number for that drawing, to equal $22,500. The winner was accompanied by a friend, who praised the winner for being lucky since he has won a number of times in the past, although never for a prize this big. LR Mart, 390 Broad St., Central Falls, sold the winning ticket.
