A Donegal Bingo player was left toasting a tidy win this weekend when an incredible run of balls turned a small flutter into a four-figure sum in the space of a couple of minutes.
The anonymous punter took a punt in a BoyleSports shop in the county on Sunday and was left hoping that their six bingo numbers were called out in store.
As the balls rolled out, their luck began to snowball as one after another their numbers were revealed. A jackpot of €100,000 was up for grabs if the selected numbers are the first six drawn but there are significant consolation prizes if they are called at any time amongst the 35 numbers called.
The hopeful Donegal native watched as 1, 3, 11, 13, 31 and 33 had all been revealed within the first 13 numbers, meaning their €40 betslip skyrocketed in value immediately to a stunning €8,000.
Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Congratulations to our Donegal customer who walked into one of our shops to place a €40 Bingo wager and walked out with €8,000. It was a lucky punt that has paid off in style and we hope they enjoy treating themselves with their winnings.”
