A wholesome Paralowie woman can’t wait to give back to those less fortunate after scoring a staggering $2.26 million Keno Spot 10 win yesterday.  

The South Australian shopper scored the $2,269,061.10 Keno Spot 10 jackpot in draw 240403 217, drawn Wednesday 3 April 2024.

The long-time player described the winning moment as magical and admitted all the other shoppers clapped for her when she discovered her multi-million-dollar win.

“I’m still in a bit of shock – I still am!” she laughed.

“Everyone clapped for me when I realised, I’d won. It was so wonderful. I always visit Paralowie Village Lotteries. It’s my local store!

“I’m still pinching myself. I can’t believe it has happened.

“I’ve been one number off a couple of times – maybe three or four times. I feel as though this win has been brewing for quite some time! 

“I’ve played the same Keno numbers ever since I won $20 in a Powerball draw. My favourite numbers are 30 and 74. 

“I’ve always enjoyed Keno! I think I’ve treated myself to tickets into the draws for eight years.

“Oh! I just can’t think – just blank at the moment – my brain isn’t working!”

When asked how she planned to move forward as a newly minted multi-millionaire, the gleeful Adelaidean shared she couldn’t wait to help her nearest and dearest as well as some charities close to her heart.

“I want to buy a house and go on a holiday,” she shared.

“I’m also a grandmother of six grandchildren; a big family.

“I’ll definitely be helping my family, especially my daughter who has gone through a rough time.

“I’d love to donate to some charities too. Probably Save the Children. I want to help those who are suffering.”

The winning entry was purchased at Paralowie Village Lotteries, Shop 9 Paralowie Village Shopping Centre, 3-7 Liberator Drive, Paralowie.
