Fayetteville man celebrates $212,500 win, largest in Keno history

Fayetteville resident Richard Tyler Jr. needed to take a second to calm down after winning a $212,500 Carolina Keno prize, the largest prize won in the history of the Keno game.

“I had to sit down for a few minutes just to breathe,” he recalled.

Tyler’s big win occurred Tuesday at Gray’s Creek BP on N.C. 87 South in Fayetteville. He said he frequently pays Keno there.

“The girls who work in the store know me,” he laughed. “They call me Keno.”

Carolina Keno lets you choose how many numbers, or spots, you play and your choice determines your odds and the prize you play for.

Tyler bought a $20 ticket and played for 10 shares. After matching nine of 10 numbers and winning $4,250, his prize grew to $212,500 when the 5X multiplier was drawn.

“When I saw how many I matched, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh,’” Tyler said. “I got kind of nervous.”

He claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters and, after required federal and state tax withholdings, took home $151,943.

Tyler has eight siblings and he said he plans to share his winnings with his family.

“We are very tight knit and very close,” he said.

can you explain the 10 shares. $20 ticket and played for 10 shares.NC Lottery
Hey there, Karen! We sure can! This winner played $10 per draw with Multiplier, which doubles the cost of the ticket, so the total ticket cost was $20. Richard matched 9/10 spots, winning $4,250 as the base amount, then that is multiplied by the amount played per draw (x10) and multiplied by the Multiplier about (x5) to give the total prize amount of $212,500!

Can you explain how he won so much on a 5 time multiplier?NC Lottery
Hi, Karen! The base win for matching 9/10 spots would be $4,250. This win is then multiplied by the amount played per draw ($10, so multiplied by 10x) and multiplied by the Multiplier amount (5x) to get the prize of $212,500!

Think he won $42,500, not $4,250NC Lottery
Hey there, Jason! The base win for matching 9/10 spots is $4,250, but this winner had that amount multiplied by the amount of shares ($10, so multiplied by 10x) and by the Multiplier of 5x to get the total prize of $212,500!
