3 Keno Winners and 3 Daily Numbers Winners in Rhode Island
It's going to be good Christmas this year, especially for some high tier Keno and Daily Numbers winners.
A Johnston man won $42,000 on a Keno Plus Ticket that he picked up today at Exeter Wine & Spirits on Nooseneck Hill Road in Exeter. The winner is planning to use the winnings to buy a new car, and also take a trip to his hometown in Italy. He played a $1 8 spot wager, with Keno Plus for the extra dollar. He matched all 8 numbers and the 4 multiplier came out, which is how his ticket ended up being a $42,000 winner. His 8 lucky numbers were based off of the birthdays of his 14 grandchildren.
A North Smithfield man won $12,000 on a Keno Plus Ticket. He wagered $2 and matched 6 out of the 6 numbers for standard payout of $2,400. However, he played an extra dollar for Keno Plus and a 5 multiplier came up, turning his prize into $12,000. Great Road Lil General in North Smithfield sold the winning ticket.
Additionally, $8,240 was won on Keno Plus by a Anthony Leiter Jr. from Riverside. He played at Katrina's Country Kitchen in Central Falls and will be using the money for Christmas gifts.
Michael Arruda took home $10,000 from two Daily Numbers Tickets. Arruda wagered $1 on the 4-digit straight 1 2 7 5 from yesterday's drawing. He purchased both tickets at Shop N Go on Greenville Avenue in Johnston. He's gladly paying off some bills and buying some nice Christmas presents.
A gentleman from East Greenwich won $10,000 on two separate Daily Numbers Tickets and wagered $1 on each. He played the 4-digit straight 2 5 0 2 on both from the November 16 drawing. The winning tickets were purchased at Breads 'N Stuff on Main Street in West Warwick.
A woman from West Warwick also cashed in $10,000 on two separate Daily Numbers Tickets and wagered $1 on each. She purchased one ticket at Pontiac Food Mart in Cranston and played the 4-digit straight 7 0 4 2 from the November 28 drawing. The other ticket was purchased at Convenience Plus in West Warwick with the same wager on 4 2 3 3 from the December 6 drawing. She plans on getting the recliner her husband has always wanted.
The Daily Numbers drawings take place Monday through Saturday at 6:59 pm and at 6:29 pm on Sundays, live on WPRI-TV.
