Words by Nick Crockford

A Warner Keno player has had the perfect kick-start to their week after winning more than $1 million.

The winner held a Keno Classic 10 Spot entry on Saturday and is now $1,228,916 richer, but will remain anonymous and celebrate in private.

It was bought at Warner Tavern, in Everest St, where manager Terry Wilson said the team was celebrating the major win and hoped for another one soon.

'Fantastic'

“Seeing a patron win big on Keno is always fantastic and generates such a positive atmosphere in our venue that everyone feels like they’ve shared in the win too,” he said.

“As you can imagine, Keno wins like this become a talking point for a long time to come.

“Our venue is no stranger to Keno wins, but we’re always excited to see another one come our way. Especially a win of this size!

Windfall

Keno spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said she was sure the winner was busy making plans for 2022 with their massive windfall.

“While we may never know how this big Keno winner plans to enjoy their prize, we have no doubt they are walking around today grinning from ear to ear after discovering their win,” she said.

“Other Keno winners tell us they use their windfall to help their families, buy a new house, upgrade their home with renovations or splurge a new car.

“However our winner chooses to use their prize, we hope they enjoy the winning feeling for a long time to come.”

Keno winners

In the 12 months to June 30, 2021, Keno players across the eastern states of mainland Australia celebrated more than 64 million wins collectively worth more than $853 million.

During this time, Keno crowned 19 millionaires and multi-millionaires who collectively took home more than $43.69 million. Eight of these major prize winners were from Queensland, including a Gladstone man who won a Keno Classic 10 Spot prize of $2.16 million.
