A Mount Isa man has had a holiday he'll never forget, winning a Keno prize of more than $61,000 during a getaway to south-east Queensland.
The stoked player held a Keno Classic 7 Spot entry with a Bonus multiplier of 10 in draw 127, drawn Saturday 20 March 2021. His total prize is $61,923.40.
When asked how planned to use his prize, the winner explained his holiday was well and truly paid for, as were the next few to come.
The winning entry was purchased at Brighton Hotel and confirming his win with an official from Keno on Tuesday, the north-west Queenslander explained he'd chosen his winning numbers with his mum.
"We were on holidays in Brisbane and we ducked up to the local for dinner," he explained.
"Mum and I always put the same numbers on and we knew straight away that it was a winner.
"It was very exciting watching our numbers appear on screen one by one."
With $61,000 about to hit his bank account, it was time to start thinking about what holiday will come next.
"Well, I suppose our holiday is well and truly paid for," he laughed.
"And I'll be sharing the prize with my mum of course."
