Linda Clinton of Hamilton knows how to pick ‘em. Linda’s DAILY KENO 8 Pick resulted in a $50,000 win in the February 26, 2021, MIDDAY draw. 

Linda, a 63-year-old grandmother, said she came close to this same win in February, but she was one number off. “I won $400! I play significant family dates – anniversaries and birthdays.” 

Linda was watching the lottery results and was excited and nervous as she watched her numbers appear. “I covered my eyes for a moment then peeked through to see the number 23 and 24 and jumped up! I looked at my husband and said, ‘We got it!’” 

She plans to help her children with her winnings and put some away for something special after the pandemic ends. 

“I feel freedom! I am so happy. I’m still questioning if this is real,” she concluded.
