Beginner’s luck, a myth for some but for others is their chance to play a game that they know absolutely nothing about and still walk away with pockets full. Amazing, but it happens every day almost without a reason.
A Lincoln man had a memorable experience at Pancho O’Malley’s on Point Judith Road in Narragansett when he decided to try Keno, a game he had never played before. He did not know how it worked but figured out that he could give it a try. He played a $2 wager on a 7-spot game. All seven of his numbers somehow came up giving him the base win of $9,000. But that is not all; he had also doubled his wager by adding the Keno Plus features, thus increasing his prize to $36,000 when the multiplier was drawn. This initial good luck with the game has given the winner such a good experience that he will play Keno again and with this extra money he plans on helping out his daughter.
