8-Spot Keno Bet Makes Silver Spring Man $60,000 Richer

Lucky player added Super Bonus multiplier feature to June 16 ticket

An early-summer Keno bet put a Montgomery County man on the road to riches, leading him to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore on Aug. 26 to claim a $60,000 prize.

The anonymous winner added the Super Bonus feature to his 8-spot wager on numbers 1, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, 61 and 71. He bought his lucky $9 ticket on June 16 at J&S Liquors located at 10000 Liberty Road in Randallstown. The 2x Super Bonus multiplier for that game doubled the Silver Spring resident’s prize.

His lucky Baltimore County retailer earned a $600 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning Keno ticket of $10,000 or more. The bonus is equal to 1% of the prize.

A new Keno Sprinkler promotion is now in progress through Sept. 11, giving players the chance to double or triple their winnings up to $100,000. If a ticket purchased during this period carries a Doubler or Tripler message, players can double or triple any prizes they win on the ticket.
