There were celebrations on Tuesday evening for one lucky customer in Co. Kerry as their six Bingo numbers were drawn to provide a huge boost to their finances.
The player transformed a modest stake into a massive profit when they took a €5 punt at the Bingo in their local BoyleSports shop in the county, picking numbers 21, 26, 27, 31, 36 and 48 to be six of the 35 numbers picked out in the draw on Tuesday evening.
A staggering €500,000 was the prize had their numbers been the first six out, but instead they received a satisfying consolation as all six came out within the first seven selected, meaning they could start popping open the champagne as a big win had landed.
Their stroke of good fortune allowed them to return to the shop to collect a tidy total of €50,000, all from a fiver.
We offer huge congratulations to our punter in Kerry who has proved in the finest way possible that you don’t have to bet big to win big. Hopefully they can enjoy a good holiday now and all for a €5 flutter!
