Lucky combination and Bonus option turn $4 wager into $30,000 payday
A Baltimore woman didn’t need a bracket or college basketball game to experience March Madness. Instead, her dramatic “Cinderella” story came courtesy of a big Keno win. The 38-year-old matched all eight numbers on her 8-spot Keno wager to turn a $4 bet into a $30,000 payout!
She found her winning ticket at Food Stop Mini Mart 2 in Baltimore, picking her own numbers for two games and sinking the big money shot on her first try. Her winning bet featured the numbers 12, 17, 19, 24, 26, 38, 44 and 46. Then, the Keno player added the game’s optional Bonus feature.
As her game began, the ticket numbers began to match the numbers drawn one by one until she had won the game’s $10,000 prize. Adding the Bonus feature for an extra dollar per game tripled the prize to $30,000, which is a payout worthy of a court-storming celebration!
For selling a winning Keno ticket of $10,000 or more, Food Stop Mini Mart 2 gets to join the party. The lucky store located at 2415 Frederick Avenue in Baltimore earned a $300 retailer bonus from the Lottery.
