First 5 Card Cash Instant Winner Claims Prize [VIDEO]


Parkville woman claims $10,000 during Keno/5 Card Cash promotion

A Parkville woman took full advantage of the most recent Keno promotion which offers a free 5 Card Cash ticket with a $10 Keno purchase.  To her surprise, the free 5 Card Cash ticket printed with a Royal Flush worth $10,000.

The woman, who plays $10 on Keno every week, had no idea what her ticket was worth when it first printed out. “At first I thought I needed to wait until the evening,” she told Lottery officials. “My friend saw the ticket, and told me that I had definitely won something big.” After double checking with a 5 Card Cash pamphlet she was shocked to see that her ticket was worth $10,000.

The humble winner saw this was life’s way of “paying it forward.” The woman, who works two jobs and always jumps at the chance to help others, is excited to be able to pass the generosity on. “I’m definitely going to give the bartender who sold me my ticket a nice tip when I see him next,” she said with a huge grin.

The first-time 5 Card Cash player said she will definitely continue to take advantage of the promotion while playing Keno through the rest of the month. She plans to use some of the winnings to help a friend and wants to save the rest. The winning ticket was purchased at Freddies, located at 660 Boulton Street in Bel Air. Through November 25, 2012, all Keno purchases of at least $10 will receive a free 5 Card Cash ticket.
