It's a Keno Christmas in Adelaide! Four $50,000 prizes won
9 December 2013
In the last fortnight, FOUR Keno Spot 8 prizes worth $50,000 each have been won by players in Adelaide!
Prizes have been won from SA Lotteries outlets in Pooraka, Kilkenny, Findon and Marleston.
The winning streak started with a Keno Spot 8 prize in draw 1805507 on 27 November 2013 which was purchased from Montague Farm Supermarket in Pooraka.
The winner has now claimed his $50,000 prize and plans to put it towards celebrating the festive season.
“The money has come at a great time, just in time for Christmas. I’m not sure what I’ll use the money for yet – perhaps some renovations around the house and I’ll help out my family as well,” the winning man said.
“Who knows, I may even treat myself.”
The second Keno Spot 8 prize was won in draw 1806403 on 30 November 2013 and was purchased from Kilkenny Lotteries Kiosk in Kilkenny.
On the weekend, the third Keno Spot 8 prize was won in draw 1808823 on 7 December 2013 and was purchased from Rex’s Findon Newsagency in Findon.
The winner said he was overwhelmed when he checked the Keno draw results on the SA Lotteries website and discovered he’d won $50,000.
“I was breathless for a few seconds; I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I can tell you it’s a good feeling having a win like that before Christmas!” the local man said.
The fourth Keno Spot 8 prize in the last two weeks occurred yesterday, with a $50,000 prize being won in draw 1809176 on 8 December 2013 from Rex Hotel in Marleston.
The winning couple in their 60s said they felt incredibly lucky as this is in fact their second major Keno win!
“We just bought a Keno ticket when we went out for lunch on Sunday. We were in the right place at the right time!” the winning husband said.
“Would you believe we actually won another Keno Spot 8 prize around two years ago which helped pay the mortgage. We’ll look at using this prize money to renovate the house.”
Adelaide’s run of good fortune could continue with Saturday X Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw on 4 January 2014. Wouldn’t it be nice to start the New Year with a bang? Tickets in the $30 Million Megadraw are now on sale from all SA Lotteries outlets.
Keno is a game whereby 20 numbers are randomly generated from a possible 80. To win a Keno Spot 8 top prize, a player must match all eight of the numbers selected on their ticket against the 20 numbers drawn. Keno can be played at any of SA Lotteries’ 580 retail agencies and more than 160 SA TAB outlets throughout South Australia.
