$12,000 Lunchtime Surprise
A Cumberland man stopped by the Atwood Grill in Johnston for lunch yesterday, and while he was eating, he played a few draws of Keno. That ended up being a very fruitful lunch as he won $12,000 on one of those draws! He played a two dollar wager and matched all six of his numbers to win the standard payout of $2,400. However, he doubled his wager and played Keno Plus so when the 5 multiplier came up, his prize became $12,000.
The numbers he played were his wife's numbers, but he'll use them if she's not around to play. He said his wife is normally luckier than him, but now he can consider himself just as fortunate! He plans to use the winnings to pay bills.
