East Maitland Dad picks up $6 million keno win

An East Maitland man says he’ll continue to work his 9-to-5 job despite his recent $6 million Keno win.

Purchased at East Maitland Bowling Club on Monday, the Keno Mega Millions 10 Spot entry will see the local Dad take home a total prize of $6,602,501.30.

“I definitely kept checking the ticket and results to see if it was real,” the man, who wishes to remain anonymous, said.

“I’ve played Keno a few times. I always just let the terminal choose random numbers for me.

“I’ve let my daughters know and they’re over the moon.

“They don’t live nearby so I might go and surprise them and we can all celebrate together.

“It’s a dream come true.”

A representative of East Maitland Bowling Club said the team couldn’t be more pleased to have sold a major Keno winning entry and wish their newly-minted multi-millionaire all the best with their prize.
