Collinswood man waits to celebrate $50,000 win until knock-off time
A hard-working Collinswood man patiently waited until knock-off time to celebrate scoring the $50,000 Keno Spot 8 win he scored during his lunch break.
The eastern Adelaide man held a Keno Spot 8 winning entry in draw 2681141 drawn Thursday 29 October 2020 and takes home $50,000.
Sharing his delight with us, the winner revealed the win had come at the perfect time.
“I play Keno regularly and always hoped I’d win, and this time I got lucky!” he exclaimed.
“It’s a great amount, and it will go a long way. It’s come at the right time.
“I’m in the middle of house construction at the moment, so I’ve got plenty of ways to spend the money!
“I usually buy a ticket and check it the next day. But for some reason when I bought today’s ticket, I checked it straight away!
“I couldn’t believe it!”
When asked how he planned to celebrate his Keno windfall, the loving family man said he was waiting until he could gather his loved ones together.
“We’re all off working hard! We haven’t had a chance to do anything yet!” he laughed.
“I’m waiting until they all finish work and can come over and we’ll do something to celebrate then!”
The winning entry was sold at the Hampstead Hotel, 143 North East Road, Collinswood.
