TOPEKA, KAN. – Maria Arana plays Kansas Lottery scratch tickets almost every day, and she does pretty well with them, too.
“I won $2,000 on a Bonus Crossword ticket just last month,” said Arana.
But it was the Kansas Lottery’s Keno game that gave Arana a much bigger prize last week, when she won $12,210 on an 8-Spot Keno ticket which included a progressive jackpot.
Arana said she has only played Keno a few times, but she’s definitely going to keep on playing now that she’s gotten so lucky.
“Next time, I’m going to play Bull’s-eye, too,” she said.
The Bull’s-eye option in Keno costs an extra $1 per play and gives players a chance to win even bigger prizes.
Arana picked her own numbers on her lucky Keno ticket, which she purchased at Short Stop 11, located at 1810 Center Street in Marysville.
