CRANSTON — A city resident was one of two recent players to claim significant winnings from a Rhode Island Lottery game.
A gentleman from Riverside won $18,000 playing Keno Plus at Town Pub, 311 Taunton Ave., in city. He wagered $1 on a 7-spot game and won $4,500. However, since he opted to play Keno Plus, and the 4X multiplier came out, his prize turned into $18,000.
He said he was shaking and had the bartender read off the winning numbers to verify. He plans on purchasing a new computer with some of the winnings.
A Coventry woman was thrilled when she scratched $20,000 off of the “Lucky Times 20” Instant Ticket. She plans to pay bills. She purchased the lucky ticket at Cumberland Farms, 785 Tiogue Ave., Coventry.
Twenty-three more top prizes of $20,000 in the “Lucky Times 20” Instant Game remain unclaimed.
