A Blakeview man’s Keno entry has given him a ticket to ride off in a new set of wheels after winning $50,000 in a recent draw. The South Australian scored the $50,000 Keno Spot 8 prize in draw 220118 872, drawn 18 January 2022. 

“I like to play Keno every now and again, but I never watch the draw,” he explained when speaking with us. 

“It usually takes me about a week or at least a few days to check my ticket. I only checked this ticket today! I wish I’d found out sooner. 

“I probably checked it about 100 times because I was so confused and shocked by the win. 

“I had no idea the Spot 8 prize had been won, and I never expected to win it myself. 

“You dream of winning a big amount, but you never really think it’ll happen to you. It’s awesome! 

“I was alone when I found out the news, so I couldn’t celebrate with anyone, but I was still so thrilled. 

“Honestly, it’s come at the best time. I recently had a car accident and so now I’m carless. It’s been a bit annoying, but this changes that. 

“I can’t wait to get myself a new car! I’ll probably go car shopping this weekend. 

“It’s a great win! I’m stoked about it.” 

The winning entry was purchased at Blakeview Newsagency, Blake's Crossing Shopping Centre, Shop 10 / 63-83 Main Terrace, Blakeview. 

Blakeview Newsagency owner Peter Steven said the entire team was ecstatic about the win. 

“We’ve been celebrating at the outlet and telling everyone we’ve sold a major Keno prize. It’s very exciting,” he said. 

“It's great to hear the prize has gone to a local customer. We really hope our winner enjoys it. “It’s amazing to deliver a major win to a customer and we can’t wait to do it again.”
