Mum’s big Keno win sur­prise

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS - BRETT SMITH

A GEELONG mum went to bed think­ing she had won a $5000 Keno prize, but woke up to dis­cover she had won more than $93,000

The woman, who had a Keno Clas­sic 8 Spot win­ning en­try on Thurs­day, plans to use her $93,380 prize to­wards a new fam­ily home.

“I was lay­ing in bed, about to go to sleep and ev­ery now and again I like to play Keno for a bit of fun,” she said.

“I was watch­ing the draw and I saw all the num­bers come up.

“But I didn’t see how much I’d won, and be­cause I don’t play that of­ten, I thought I might have won maybe $5000.

But when she woke and went on­line to check the prize it was a much bet­ter re­sult.

“I kept think­ing, ‘Is this real? No way’,” she said. “It’s won­der­ful, I just can’t be­lieve it.

“I can’t re­ally do too much, but I think I will order some take­away for din­ner and get some­thing spe­cial to drink. This is worth cel­e­brat­ing.”

The emo­tional win­ner said life would look very dif­fer­ent.

“This has changed my life for­ever,” she said. “It is a huge win for me. It’s in­cred­i­ble.

“I can fi­nally buy my­self a house. I am go­ing to start look­ing on­line. It’s so ex­cit­ing.”
