John Wesley Griffin of La Grande, Oregon, seldom plays a seven-spot Keno ticket, but after winning a $143,670 prize, he’s glad he gave it a try.

Griffin played five consecutive games in La Grande. In his third game, he matched all seven numbers for a $5,500 prize. John played $5 per game, which increased his prize to $27,500. By choosing the state’s Keno Multiplier Option, he increased his prize to $137,500 when the multiplier 5, was drawn for his winning game. Adding in a $6,170.50 seven-spot Keno Rolling Jackpot Bonus, brought John’s total prize to $143,670.50.

What’s next for John? A new car for his wife, and starting college funds for his two young children topped his Things To Do List for his prize money!
