PASADENA, MD —While shuttling her two daughters to their basketball practices, a 47-year-old mom from Pasadena popped into Talbert’s Ice and Beverage Service in Bethseda and played a couple of rounds of keno while there. The girls play on different youth travel basketball teams, and when the Anne Arundel County mom and her husband won big, they couldn’t believe it.
The couple has won small amounts in the past playing keno, but this time they picked up a $40,000 payday. The score came on an eight-spot quick-pick ticket the mom bought for one drawing. The $10,000 prize quadrupled to $40,000 because she added the super bonus feature, which applied a four-time multiplier to her win.
The couple sometimes plays a set of numbers they pick. After the July 13 win, however, going the quick-pick route looks more appealing than ever. The couple shared with the Maryland lottery that their latest keno winnings will be helpful for paying travel and lodging expenses they accumulate while traveling to and from their daughters’ basketball tournament in and out of state.
The sports-loving parents also plan to spend the prize on house projects, to pay off debt and go on an Ocean City family vacation in August. Talbert’s Ice and Beverage Service, which is located at 5234 River Road in Bethesda, picks up a bonus of $400, equal to 1 percent of the prize.
