Keno winner: ‘It feels like a dream’

By Ellie Boswell

When a Bribie Island man checked his Keno ticket at his local bowls club and realised he’d won a $326,000 prize, everyone erupted in cheers.

The Queensland player held a Keno Classic 9 Spot winning entry in draw 438, drawn Monday (June 21). His total prize was $326,426.40.

Speaking with a Keno official this morning, the winner said: “I was that excited last night! I have been playing for years and I have never won anything like this.

‘I wasn’t watching’

“When the draw was happening, I was up getting a beer, so I wasn’t watching it. But then I glimpsed up at the screen and saw I had a few numbers.

“My ticket was sitting on the table, so I asked my friend to check to see how many numbers I had.

“At first, he thought I had eight numbers but then he realised it was nine and he screamed out to me, ‘you’ve won the 9 Spot prize!’.

Everyone cheered

“Everyone in the venue started looking at me and then they started cheering. It hasn’t sunk in! It feels like a dream! I am still shaking right now.”

When asked how he planned to enjoy his Keno fun money, the winner said it made things a little easier.

“We’ve only got a small house, so we are going to upgrade and get something a little bigger,” hesays. “I will share some with my kids as well and go on a bit of a holiday.”
