SA Retiree Scores $1.6 Million In Big Keno Win!

Dec 2, 2019


A retired Whyalla man is looking forward to “sinking a few cold ones” this afternoon as he celebrates scoring a Keno Spot 10 prize worth $1,664,117.50 drawn on Monday.

According to the Keno folks:

The happy Whyalla local was visiting Eyre Hotel for lunch when he saw his winning numbers come up on the Keno screen.

“I’m still shaking at the knees! I can’t believe it!” he exclaimed.

“I saw the numbers come up on the screen. I couldn’t believe all 10 numbers came up.

“A few years ago I won $10,000 on a QuickPick entry so I made note of the numbers and have used them every time since.

“They’ve definitely come good!

“I’m glad I walked down to the pub to get lunch because now I can have a couple of beers to celebrate!”

When asked how he planned to enjoy his Keno windfall, the stoked bloke confessed he had his eyes on a shiny new car.

“Well I’ve got two sons and I’ve already called them to let them know,” he said.

“They thought I was bullsh*ting them but I can’t wait to show them when the prize is paid that I am a millionaire!

“I’m sure I’ll be sharing it with them but I’ll also get something for myself.

“I’m pretty sorted in life but I think I will treat myself to a new Mustang!”

The happy winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning Keno 10 Spot entry at Eyre Hotel, 39 Playford Ave, Whyalla.
