3 Keno Winners and 3 Daily Numbers Winners in Rhode Island

December 13, 2011

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 Rhode Island Lottery Keno Winnerprize 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.

Rhode Island Lottery Daily Numbers Game WinnerMichael 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.
