You will say how is that possible that you also win and your friend also win on same tavern where finding the best odds of winning Keno Jackpot is much harder. But who can challenge your destiny if you have to be a millionaire- obviously no one can. This is what happened when a man won $2 million on keno last year in November 2016 at the Beachmere Tavern.
A man did win $2 million on Keno at the Beachmere Hotel just four years after his mate did exactly the same thing. The $2.12 million Keno jackpot topped off a winning streak for the tradesman, who is in his 60s. It seems lady luck was with him for the whole month of November last year as prior to winning this jackpot few days before he had won $3000 on the pokies, followed by a $1700 jackpot on the pokies again and a $400 mini jackpot at the Sundowner Hotel.
That lucky day after a few drinks, he went home but decided to head to the Beachmere Hotel, where he played the pokies and also Keno Using Quick Picks before reverting to a set of birthday numbers which he often uses, chosen for him by a friend.
He was playing the pokies and about 10 minutes after he put his tickets in, when one of the girls came out and said, ‘Someone’s won $2 million. Have you still got a ticket going?'”. He just kept playing the pokies and about 10 or 15 minutes later, he took my ticket over and the register rang out. She said, ‘You’re the one we’ve been looking for’.”
The tradesman, claims he has little regard for money, took the win in his stride and was so casual that after all the handshakes and everything, he just went back to playing the pokies for a while.
He said it was “unbelievable” that two blokes who were friends could win $2 million separately at the same tavern. Maybe friendship followed the destiny too.
The lucky streak came at a good time for the man, who had been about $2000 behind in bills for rates, water and sewage, and his house payment.
He is now looking at buying a new house and perhaps a boat to make up for the one he sold to get by when he was out of work a few years back and forced to dip in to his superannuation to get by.
He said he would continue working, but possibly not as much maybe only three days a week, but instead of doing 10 or 12 hours a day, he will now do eight hours a day.
Beachmore Tavern also houses a Sports Bar with a big screen showing the races and all the main sporting events so you don’t miss a second of the action. With TAB facilities available and Giddy-Up screens their friendly staff can provide any required information and have it available on hand.
The Tavern has proven lucky for not only the latest winner and his mate. In the year 2015, there was a nine out of $33,61610 win on February 6, a seven-number jackpot of $33,616 was won on February 2, and a nine number jackpot of $155,616 was won on November 8. Just say Wow!
