$16,400 Keno Plus Winner
A man from Woodriver Junction claimed a $16,400 winning Keno Plus ticket after deciding on a whim to stop and play Keno. He went to Backtrack Bar & Grill on Industrial Drive in Westerly to buy a quick pick ticket for a few draws. He placed a ten dollar wager on a five spot bet and made sure to double his wager for the Keno Plus option. His ticket matched all 5 numbers, winning the standard payout of $4,100. However, since he also purchased Keno Plus, his prize was multiplied by four, that draw’s Keno Plus number, to equal $16,400. The winner still hasn’t decided what he’ll do with the money.
