BRIDGEPORT - Connecticut lottery players got their first look Monday at Keno in bars, restaurants and convenience stores across the state.

Tae's Lounge is now one of nearly 2,900 lottery retailers throughout the state to sell Keno, a popular lottery game in many places across the country.

Ronald Jones, who owns the lounge, says he took a chance and applied for a license from the Connecticut Lottery a few months ago to sell the game.

Jones says the game is likely to be a hit, and with a new game rolled out every four minutes, the possibilities of winning are high.

Connecticut Lottery officials say Keno will increase revenue for the State's General Fund.
