Kallangur man's $150,000 windfall

Posted: 9am 06 Jul 2021

A Kallangur man’s favourite nine numbers have delivered him a $150,000 Keno win after years using the special combination of dates.

The man held a Keno Classic 9 Spot winning entry bought at Kallangur Tavern, in draw 239, drawn Sunday and took home $152,859.90.

“I have been playing those nine numbers since Keno started,” he explained when contacted by a Keno official. “They’re all family birthdays and other special dates.

'Knew I was close'

“I’ve had eight out of nine about three times so I knew I was getting close to getting all of them!

“I was at the tavern at the time of the draw, but I wasn’t looking at the screen. But then I looked up and saw someone in the venue had scored a massive prize.

“I knew straight away that there was a pretty good chance it would be me. When I checked my ticket, I was so happy!”

New car

With more than $150,000 about to hit his bank account, the Moreton Bay Region man had a few ideas of how he’d be enjoying his Keno windfall.

“I’m certainly due for a new car, so that will be the first thing,” he said.

“I’ll keep working for now, and I will put the rest towards my retirement fund. It will definitely take the pressure off!”

Queensland's eight

In 2020, Keno players across the eastern states of mainland Australia had more than 59.9 million wins collectively worth more than $840.6 million.

During this time, Keno crowned 19 millionaires and multi-millionaires who collectively took home more than $42.3 million.

Eight of these major winners were Queenslanders, including a Gold Coast man who won a Keno Classic 10 Spot prize of more than $2.02 million.

Second chance

Queenslanders enjoyed more than 18.59 million Keno wins totalling more than $264.42 million at pubs and clubs across the state in 2020.

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
