A pensioner is planning to sit on her $50,000 Keno Spot 8 win for some time while she decides how to best spend her windfall.

“I honestly never expected to win! I couldn’t stop shaking when I realised I won!” the grandmother exclaimed.

“I play with a friend so it’s nice to have someone to share the winning experience with and someone to shake with me,” she joked.

“I’m going to put my half away and just look at it for while.”
