A Geelong mum woke to discover she had won a “magic” $93,000 this morning after going to bed last night thinking she had won $5000 instead.
“I was laying in bed, about to go to sleep,” she explained, when a lottery official called her this morning.
“Every now and again, I like to play Keno for a bit of fun. I was watching the draw and I saw all the numbers come up! I thought ‘Voilà! Magic!’.
“But I actually didn’t see how much I won, and, because I don’t play that often, I thought I might have won maybe $5000 or something like that.
“Then I went to sleep and when I woke up, I went back online to have a look at exactly what my prize was, and that was a very different story!
“I kept thinking ‘is this real? No way!’.
“It’s wonderful! I just can’t believe it. Hooley dooley!
“At the moment I can’t really do too much, but I think I will order some takeaway for dinner and get something special to drink. This is worth celebrating.”
The excited winner, who wished to remain anonymous, said the money would change her life.
“It’s a huge win for me! It’s incredible. I can finally buy myself a house! I am going to start looking online. It’s so exciting!”
The Victorian player held a Keno Classic 8 Spot winning entry in game 129 yesterday night.
The odds of winning spot 8 in the draw are one in 1,380,687.
