“It’s crazy!”: North-east Adelaide man’s million-dollar dream becomes reality thanks to Keno win
A north-east Adelaide man’s dreams of becoming a millionaire have become a reality after winning a Spot 10 prize in Keno yesterday.
The South Australian scored the $1,295,308.00 Keno Spot 10 jackpot in draw 220119 561, drawn 19 January 2022.
We reached out to the winner moments after he’d discovered his million-dollar win.
“I can’t believe it! I’ve been dreaming of this moment, but I never thought it would happen to me,” he explained.
“I’d heard someone from the newsagency I’d bought my ticket from had won the Spot 10 prize, so I wanted to check my ticket as soon as possible.
“I was absolutely stunned when I found out I was the winner. It was a huge shock. It’s honestly amazing!
“I’m a millionaire! I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to saying that. It’s crazy!
“I keep pinching myself. It feels like a dream. Maybe I am dreaming? “I’m just trying to let the news sink in. I haven’t told anyone yet except for you.
“I even went straight back to work after discovering the news. It’s super weird. I want to scream and cheer and tell everyone I’ve won, but obviously, I won’t do that.
“I’m going to go home and break the news to my wife tonight. I’ll try and find a fun way to do that.
“This is incredible. It’s hard to get my head around it!
“I’ll use the prize to look after my family, and I’d like to plan some future overseas holidays.
“We’ll invest some for the future as well.”
The winning entry was purchased at Northgate Newsagency, Shop 7A, Northgate Village Shopping Centre, Folland Avenue, Northgate.
Northgate Newsagency owner Chintan Damani said he was celebrating the exciting win.
“It’s amazing! We’re all so excited about it,” he said.
“We’ve had three big wins in the last few months. In September, we’d sold a Spot 8 win in Keno and then in December, we had a division two win in Lotto.
“This is our third big win recently! Hopefully, we’re on a bit of a streak and have some more major wins.
“We’d love to send our congratulations to the winner. We hope he enjoys being a millionaire!”
