After discovering he’d won a $50,000 Keno prize, an Aldinga Beach man is rewriting his Christmas list, with plans to use the cash to buy the pergola he’s been eyeing off. 

The South Australian scored the $50,000 Keno Spot 8 prize in draw 211127 398, drawn 27 November 2021. 

Speaking with us this afternoon, the Adelaide man declared he’d bagged something much more exciting than just bread and milk during his venture to the shops. 

“I actually didn’t know I’d won. I’d just bought a ticket while I was out grocery shopping and so I was completely clueless,” he laughed. 

“It wasn’t until I got home and checked it online, that I realised I’d won the Spot 8 prize. 

“Honestly, I couldn’t believe it. It was a very exciting win!

“I think I gasped and let out a few cheers. 

“It’s quite overwhelming. I am still trying to get my head around it all. 

“This isn’t my first big win, but It’s certainly the biggest!” When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the overjoyed man admitted he had one thing in mind. 

“I want to get a really big pergola,” he shared. 

“It’s something we’ve wanted for ages, so it feels like a little Christmas present to ourselves.” 

The winning entry was purchased at Seaford Newsagency, Shop 17, Seaford Shopping CentreCnr Commercial Road and The Parade, Seaford. 

Seaford Newsagency owners Manish and Aarti Vinayak said they couldn’t be more thrilled to have had another major Keno win at their outlet. 

“It’s excellent news! This is our second major Keno win this year,” Manish said. 

“Hopefully we can make it a hat trick and have another big Keno win to close out the year. 

“We’ve been sharing the news with all of our customers. It’s a very exciting win for us.” 

“We’d love to send our congratulations to our winner. We wish him the best of luck with his prize.” Aarti added. 

“The winner is a regular customer and very deserving, so we’re over the moon.
