Wins $40,000 Playing Keno

Steve Davidson - KenoSteve Davidson spent thirty years working at Bethlehem Steel in Baltimore before retiring and taking his family to the mountains of West Virginia. He comes back to town once a month to visit his mother, a trip which today was a few miles longer than normal – the distance from Glen Burnie to Lottery Headquarters.

“We took my mom out to lunch and while we were there I decided to play Keno,” Steve told officials. A long-time fan of Maryland Lottery games, Steve has an eight-digit Keno combination he plays whenever he’s back in his hometown. “I’d been playing these specific numbers for a while with no success. I told my wife I was trying them just one more time.” Those eight numbers, along with Steve’s selection of the game’s “super bonus” option, made this lunch a memorable one.

Steve watched the game as the family began eating. “I saw number after number coming up,” he explained, “and when that eighth number matched I was stunned.” When he was informed that he’d just won $40,000 he had an even more dramatic reaction – especially for a Baltimorean. “I was so excited that I couldn’t finish my crab cake.”

Some of Steve’s winning will go toward paying off a recently purchased truck. The family’s new favorite spot for lunch and Keno? – Romano’s Restaurant, 6905 Ritchie Hwy.in Glen Burnie, where the winning ticket was purchased.
