Words by Nick Crockford

A Kallangur man says his $163,000 Keno win this week will transform his life and make long-held dreams a reality.

The Moreton Bay resident held a Keno Classic 9 Spot winning entry in draw 534, drawn Tuesday (November 1) and takes home a total prize of $163,467.00.

Speaking to an official from Keno, the Queenslander recalled the moment he discovered his windfall after buying a ticket at North Leagues and Services Club.

“You see, it’s a little bit of a blur!” he laughed. “Everyone in the club was cheering for me and patting me on the back.

'No reaction'

“Surprisingly, I had no reaction! I’m just one of those guys that keeps cool when things like this happen.

“The team member at the club even said to me, ‘Wow mate, you’re the most chill guy I’ve ever seen’.

“We’re really happy to have won. It’s quite a large sum, so we will make some good use out of it.”

When asked how he planned to enjoy his fun money, the winner shared it would kickstart his travel plans.

Booking holidays

“We were grateful to enjoy overseas holidays before the pandemic hit, but we had to put it all on hold,” he said.

“We can now look forward to arranging and booking some holidays in!”

This financial year, Keno players across the eastern states of Australia celebrated more than 62.2 million wins collectively worth more than $896.7 million.

Millionaires

During this time, Keno crowned 19 millionaires and multi-millionaires who collectively took home more than $30.7 million. Eleven of these major winners were Queenslanders, including a Roma man who walked away with $1.96 million after a night out in Blackall.

Queenslanders enjoyed more than 17.8 million Keno wins totalling more than $271.5 million at pubs and clubs across the state in the 12 months to 30 June 2022.

Keno players can also enter into the monthly second chance draw for the chance to win one of five $1000 prizes by scanning their ticket at win.secondchance.keno.com.au.

Keno is a fun game played at about 3,500 pubs and clubs across Queensland, New South Wales, the ACT and Victoria.
