Retired pensioners from Golden Grove are still recovering from the shock after discovering they had won $50,000 on their Keno Spot 8 entry.

The elated couple saw the winning numbers on the Keno screen and couldn’t believe their eyes!

“When I saw our numbers on the screen I just couldn’t believe it,” the winning husband confessed.

“$50,000 it’s just unbelievable! To us it’s like winning the jackpot!

“First we’re going to celebrate our windfall with lunch at one of our favourite local places where the food is really good and then we’ll think about using some of the money for some renovations around the house.

“Oh – and we might even treat ourselves to a holiday next year.”

The winning Keno Spot 8 entry in draw 2189571 was purchased from Golden Grove Village Newsagency, Shops 3/4 Village Shopping Centre, Golden Way in Golden Grove. 

Sonia Taylor is the manager of Golden Grove Village Newsagency and said she was thrilled to have sold a $50,000 prize to her customers.

“It’s great news that it’s been won by a local couple and great news for the local community.

“What a great time of year to win – just before Christmas. We hope they have a fabulous celebration and we hope to have more happy winners soon – particularly with the $31 million Megadraw just a few weeks away.”
