Truck driver Frank Weis and his partner Kim Van Mosseveld celebrate the $1.36 million Keno jackpot win.

TRUCKIE Frank Weis has more than a million reasons to smile after winning a massive Keno jackpot which will save his house.

The 59-year-old was on the brink of selling his Park Ridge home after spending the past 18 months off work when he was injured in a truck accident - and now he has pocketed a $1.69 million.

"It's just unbelievable," he told The Sunday Mail yesterday.

"We're still scratching our heads over it."

Mr Weis said the last 18 months had been a "hell of a struggle", but he will now be able to save his home.

"Things weren't picking up and it was just a disaster everywhere," he said.

He was at the Browns Plains Hotel on Friday afternoon when he played his regular numbers and won the life changing prize.

Keno spokesman David Dicker said the jackpot could not have gone to a more deserving person.

"Keno loves making millionaires, and we love it even more when someone who has been doing it tough, like our newest millionaire, is able to turn their life around through Keno," he said.
