Tony Beck of Kennewick, Washington (pictured), was on vacation in Seaside when he bought a Keno ticket at Dundee’s Bar & Grill. He was shocked when he found out it was a $76,000 winner, according to a press release from the Oregon Lottery. “Honestly, I haven’t played Oregon Lottery Keno,” Beck said, “and I wasn’t even sure how to play.”
Neil Dundas, who owns Dundee’s along with his wife, Stacey (both are also pictured), was just as surprised. “We’ve been open since 2002,” he said, “and have never sold a Lottery ticket with a prize this large. … We usually see $1,600 or $1,800 wins on Video Lottery, but never anything like this.”
Beck knows just what to do with his winnings. “With the kids I have in college and diapers, it will get soaked up,” he added, laughing.
