Daren Locke was in complete disbelief when he realized he won $30,008 in a Keno draw on November 10, 2021. In the spirit of giving back, the Maple Ridge local is now planning to use his winnings towards an early gift for his family and friends this holiday season.
Locke purchased the ticket at Fox’s Reach Pub and was also there when he realized he won.
“My first thought was, ‘Wow!’” Locke recalled.
On whether he plans to spend any of his winnings on himself, Locke said he would like to plan a vacation to Las Vegas, Mexico or somewhere in Asia.
