CT Lottery’s Largest KENO Prize Winner Plays Same Numbers and Wins Again!
The CT Lottery saw a familiar face when Mark Roy of Groton returned to claim another huge KENO
prize! Last year, Roy won a $200,000 prize, matching 7 of 7 numbers with a 4X multiplier. This year, Roy played the exact same numbers, at the same Retailer and won $100,000! To date, Roy is the CT Lottery’s largest KENO winner.
“The numbers—they all mean something to me. They’re all family birthday numbers. I’m just ecstatic,” exclaimed the repeat winner. “I had a feeling—Thursday I got up and said, ‘Something good is going to happen today!’”
Roy won $50,000 for matching 7 out of 7 numbers on his $20 ticket in game #159711. Since the bonus multiplier was 2X, Roy’s prize was automatically multiplied to $100,000.
“I feel so happy! There’s money in the bank, I have a great job—I feel blessed. Blessed with family and friends!” Roy smiled ear to ear after receiving his check and told Lottery officials he plans to book a vacation with KENO prize.
Roy’s winning ticket was sold at Gatehouse Tavern located on 24 Eastern Point Road in Groton. This is the second time Roy has won a large KENO prize at the Gatehouse Tavern.
