FOREST GROVE, Ore. (AP) - The owners of The King’s Head English pub in Forest Grove, Oregon, say they’ll use the proceeds from their Oregon Lottery 8-spot Keno jackpot win to pay off what’s left of the debt on the business they purchased eight months ago.

Beyond that, The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/gMfyl1) that Les Coleman and his wife Jennie, Wayne Cree and Cassandra Johnston plan to meet soon and decide how best to proceed.

They won Monday’s jackpot for $116, 984.

Coleman said he had never played the Keno game, but he and Cree decided to try because of the unusually large jackpot, with any winnings to be split. Coleman paid $5 for a ticket at a deli a few doors down from the pub.

Forest Grove is west of Portland.
