In Keno’s first two weeks, dozens of big winners have walked through the doors of CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim their prizes. One of the largest Keno prizes thus far was claimed by Alfred Strong, Jr. of New Britain, who bought his very first Keno ticket on April 28.

“I saw someone else playing (Keno) and I thought I’d give it a try,” said Strong, who purchased a 7-Spot Keno “Quick Pick” ticket for 3 games and added the Bonus Multiplier.

“After the drawing, I scanned my ticket in the Ticket Checker and it said, ‘Congratulations, you won $50,002.’ I scanned it again and again, and got the same message. That’s when I went home and got the family and we all came back to the store—and scanned the ticket again. When my daughter read the Ticket Checker message, she started crying and I started screaming, ‘I just won $50,000!’”

Strong won $5,000 for matching 7 of 7 numbers on his ticket in game #3623. Because the Bonus Multiplier was 10X, Strong’s prize was automatically multiplied to $50,000. Just for good measure, Strong won $2 on another game on his ticket.

When Strong was asked what plans he had for his unexpected windfall, he laughed and said, “It’s time to pay bills.”

Strong’s Keno ticket was purchased at Center Mini Mart at 513 Center Street, Manchester.
