Bragging rights for Elkford Keno winner
Frederick Riehl of Elkford says he feels like a local celebrity after winning a total of $48,765 playing Keno from draws on May 26 and 31.
Riehl was having a coffee at the Elkford Mini Mart & Fas Gas, where he purchased the Keno tickets, when he realized he’d won.
“Since I live in a smaller town, it feels like I won the local lottery,” Riehl said. “It gives me bragging rights.”
Riehl says he usually picks random numbers and also enjoys playing Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49. Riehl was planning to retire next year and says this win will make that decision a little easier.
