Last minute decision leads to $1.1m win for kitchen hand

A LAST minute decision to throw $10 on Keno has paid off for a young Rockhampton man.

After trying his luck on the pokies at the Raffles Hotel on Wednesday night, Aaron (who preferred not to reveal his surname) said he decided to have a crack at the Keno jackpot.

"I was just about to leave and I had a bit of money left so I thought I'd just put it on Keno," he said at the hotel on Friday.
