Kilmore man wins million dollars

A Kilmore man has declared he is a ‘very happy bloke’ today after discovering he is now a millionaire from winning a Keno 10 Spot prize last night.

The Victorian player won the Keno 10 Spot prize worth $1,092,036.80 in draw 529 on Wednesday 11 September 2019.

The thrilled winner admitted when he discovered his windfall last night, he broke down into tears.

“Gosh I am very good!” he laughed when speaking to a Keno official this morning.

“We just came to Swan Hill for a few nights because the weather has been so beautiful.

“I went out to dinner last night with my missus and put on some Keno using the same numbers I have been using for years.

“I’d heard there had been a 10 Spot winner, so I went up and checked my ticket and that’s when I realised I was the winner.

“I was shocked! I teared up. I was very emotional.

“It blew me away. This is insane, I never thought it would happen to me.

“I feel very blessed. It’s life-changing.

“I am a very happy bloke!”

When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the overwhelmed man said he had plenty of ideas.

“It means I will never have to worry about money ever again,” he admitted.

“I am going to buy my own home. I’m renting now, so I would just love to have my own place.

“I want to get a new car and I am going to be doing lots of road trips around Australia.”
