One Toowoomba visitor is leaving the city with more than just happy memories after a night out scored her a Keno prize of more than $120,000.
The winner, from the Central Coast in New South Wales, held a Keno 8 Spot winning entry in game 627 on Saturday 4 May 2019. She takes home a total prize of $120,270.10.
The win continues the Darling Downs’ Keno winning streak. Less than four weeks ago, a Dalby grandmother won a Keno 10 Spot jackpot worth $1.3 million.
Speaking with a Keno official this morning to confirm her weekend win, the Toowoomba holidaymaker couldn’t contain her excitement.
“It’s a bit of a shock,” she exclaimed.
“We go out to dinner, play some numbers, and far out, it’s crazy!
“We didn’t watch the draw, but someone in the club said ‘One hundred and twenty thousand dollars has just been won in here’. I thought ‘oh, good luck to them’. I didn’t realise that winner was me.
“I was pretty much stunned. I just thought ‘Oh beauty! That’s cool!’.
“I play Keno only when I go out, but I hadn’t been out for yonks. I was there on the weekend and thought ‘why not?’.
“It’s been a winning weekend!”
The holidaymaker played a 8 Spot entry but also decided to play Keno Bonus, which tripled her winnings to just over $120,000.
“I’m certainly glad I played the Bonus!” she laughed.
When asked how she might use her Keno fun money, the visitor shared some plans were already forming.
“I think I’m going to share it with mum and dad, and I’m sure there’ll be some other new things for me in there too.”
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning Keno 8 Spot entry at City Golf Club, 254 South Street, Toowoomba.
