An Adelaide man visiting Tumby Bay for Christmas had an extra reason to be festive after scoring a $50,000 Keno prize.

The South Australian winner held a Keno Spot 8 winning entry in draw 231223 046 on Saturday 23 December 2023.

“Sweet! I had no idea I’d won!” the winning man exclaimed when we called the day after the draw to confirm his prize.

“I’ve only just had breakfast! What a great way to start the day!

“I’m just visiting Tumby Bay from Adelaide for Christmas and I like to play a game of Keno every now and then.

“I got this ticket yesterday, but I haven’t had the chance to check them yet.

“I’ve got to say, you’ve put a real sparkle in my step! Thank you!

“I’d love to do some home renovations so I think some of this prize will go towards that.

“Merry Christmas to me!”

His winning entry was purchased at Neindorf’s Friendly Grocer, Cnr Lipson Road and North Terrace, Tumby Bay.

Neindorf's Friendly Grocer owner Paul Neindorf said he was ecstatic to have sold another major prize-winning ticket.

"Our customers will be pleased that we have sold another winner," he said.

"We sold a Saturday X Lotto division one winning ticket about 18 months ago, and all up, we have sold two Saturday X Lotto division one winners, one Instant Scratch-Its top prize and now a Keno Spot 8 win over the 29 years we have been here.

"It's just fantastic that we have sold another winner from our outlet. We are just so pleased for our winners."
