Generous Bribie man hits $2m Keno jackpot

A RETIRED Bribie Island man known for his charitable nature has won the first major Keno jackpot for 2015 - $2.39 million.

The man, who wishes to keep his identity private, became the first person to win a 10-number Keno jackpot at a TattsBet venue in Queensland, after matching 10 out of 10 numbers.

Bribie Island TattsBet agency owner Deborah Paton said the man won a $2,394,610 cash prize.

She said she had no doubt he would use it to help make other people's lives better.

"The money has gone to the right person," she said.

"He's the sort of person who likes to help out other people. He really enjoys doing that sort of thing."

Mrs Paton said the winner had been buying Keno tickets with the same numbers for many years.

"He's a regular. He comes in weekly and plays the same numbers," she said.

The win is the second big win for 2015 for the small beachside agency, which Mrs Paton described as having a "happy and relaxed atmosphere".

The winning Keno numbers were 6, 10, 22, 23, 27, 28, 37, 51, 52 and 77.
