A Donegal bingo player is better off to the tune of €11,000 this weekend after an incredible run of numbers sent a mega windfall their way.
The punter, who wishes to remain anonymous, staked €11 in a BoyleSports shop in the county on Saturday and was left hoping that their 6 bingo numbers were called out.
The customer chose numbers 1, 3, 11, 13, 31 and 33, with BoyleSports offering a jackpot of €100,000 if the selected numbers are the first 6 drawn.
The Donegal native was quids in when the 6 numbers had all been called within the first 10 in the bingo draw at 12.46pm, beating odds of 999/1 and seeing them walk out of the shop with a total of €11,000.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Number 13 may have been among the selections but this was far from an unlucky pick for our Donegal customer who must’ve been laughing when all 6 of their numbers had come out nearly as soon as the draw had started. We wish them huge congratulations on their win and hope they enjoy splashing out with the €11,000.”
