Canungra woman almost $60K richer after surprise Keno win!

A hardworking Canungra mum is almost $60,000 richer after a massive Keno win at her local hotel.

The woman purchased her winning Keno entry at the Canungra Hotel on Monday, taking home a total prize of $59,450.70.

Confirming her win with a Keno official this morning, the Canungra woman said she can’t wait to celebrate her win by going to bed early… as you do!


“Honestly I am such a busy person. All I want to do to celebrate is get in to bed and have an early night,” she laughed.

The lucky punter said she still hasn’t really been able to process the win.

“It feels surreal! I just dropped in for a bite to eat and that’s when they told me,” she said.

“I screamed yahoo! It is insane… It’s very exciting.”

When asked how she planned to enjoy her prize, the excited mum said she had plenty of plans.

“I am going to pay off my bills and I might buy myself a new car,” she shared.

“I also want to donate some more money to my favourite charity. I am really excited to do that because it means a lot to me.”

Canungra Hotel venue manager Simon Walsh said he was ecstatic his hotel had sold the winning entry.

“I only discovered the news the morning after the win. I didn’t know we had sold an 8 Spot win on Monday night. It’s great news,” he said.

“It’s great to hear this win has gone to a good local customer.”
