Last-Minute Decision Wins Glen Burnie Man $30,000

Keno Super Bonus triples prize

A Glen Burnie electrician, who plays Keno regularly, very rarely adds the Super Bonus feature to his purchase. Luckily for him, when purchasing his Keno ticket at the All American Sports Bar on Christmas Eve, he decided to add it. A three times multiplier came out which tripled his prize to $30,000.

“I was about to play when I decided to add the Super Bonus,” he said. “I figured it was only an additional $3, so why not?”

Luck was also in his corner when he decided to play these particular numbers. The 56-year-old told Lottery officials that he had stopped playing these numbers – his old favorites – a couple of months ago.

“I’m not sure why I decided to play this ticket the other night, but I’m glad I did,” he said.

He signed the ticket right away and started high fiving people on his way out. He and his wife of almost 30 years brought the ticket to Lottery headquarters today to claim the prize. They plan to use the prize towards their daughter’s college tuition.

The All American Sports Bar is located at 1205 N. Crain Hwy. in Glen Burnie. The retail location will receive $300 for selling the winning ticket.
