A Ballina resident who won the $2.27 million Keno jackpot at Ballina RSL Club on Sunday said she had only popped in to pay her husband’s bowls fees.
The Ballina Shire resident has been a member of the Ballina RSL for 30 years and is a life-long ticket buyer.
And after all these years it’s her first ‘decent win’.
‘From the age of 13 I bought lotto every week with my mum and never had a decent win’ she said.
‘It was my birthday last week and two of my family members so I used our birth dates and current ages to make up the 10 numbers’.
The lucky lady already gives to charity and plans on continuing to do this as well as take a holiday to Alaska.
