Ten players won $20,000 or more in a record breaking day for Keno yesterday, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall.

"Yesterday one Christchurch player won $40,000, nine players across New Zealand won $20,000, two $10,000 prizes, two players won $4,000 and another five won $2,000. It's been a massive draw for Keno players, creating a large number of winners.

"In total nineteen Keno players have won prizes worth more than $258,000 in last night's 6pm Keno draw.
