“Unreal” $1.5 million Keno win

Posted: 9am 22 Dec 2020

A Deception Bay woman has described the “unreal” moment she discovered her Keno 10 Spot entry, bought in North Lakes, had won her $1.5 million.

The winner bought the Keno Classic 10 Spot winning entry at North Lakes Sports Club and after Friday’s draw takes home $1,555,758.

It was the Moreton Bay Region’s fourth biggest win in 2020 and takes our major Division One, first prize Lotteries, Scratch-Its and Keno wins this year to $14,605,430.17 … so far!

Still in shock

Speaking with a Keno official today, the regular player says she is still in shock at her early Christmas present.

“It’s wonderful!” she exclaims. “I go to the sports club every week, and whenever I am there, I play Keno.

“I couldn’t believe it when I checked my ticket and saw that I had won over a million dollars! It was unreal.

“I’m not sure what I am going to do with it. I just don’t know. I’ll just have to wait until it lands in my bank account. It’s still sinking in!”

So excited

North Lakes Sports Club Venue Manager Craig Allan says: “Everyone was so excited once we found out we had sold such a massive prize!

“We’ll be celebrating the win throughout the venue all week.

“I think our patrons will feel a little bit luckier knowing we’ve sold a 10 Spot prize. Congratulations to our winner!”

Between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020, Keno players across the eastern states of mainland Australia celebrated more than 58.4 million wins collectively worth more than $776.79 million.

Big wins

Queenslanders enjoyed more than 19.49 million Keno wins totalling more than $249.57 million at pubs and clubs across the state in the 12 months to June 30, 2020.

Keno players can also enter into the monthly second chance draw for the chance to win one of five $1,000 prizes by scanning their ticket at win.secondchance.keno.com.au
