Historical Day for Keno – Ten Players Win $20,000 Or More in One Draw
Ten players won $20,000 or more in a record breaking day for Keno yesterday, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Trevor Hall.
"Last night's 6pm draw has smashed records because until now the most we've had in one draw is three winners of more than $20,000.
"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.
