Chef wins a staggering £4.2 million on an £8 bet with Paddy Power!

A Northern Irish chef still made it to work just hours after winning a massive £4.2 million on slot game, Mars Attacks via Paddy Power, which was the biggest online win in the company’s entire history!

33 year old Sean Doyle, from Newcastle, County Durham, placed an £8 bet on the evening before Valentine’s Day, and got quite a surprise, when he watched his total wins climb higher and higher, resulting in a grand total of £4,283,863.55.

“I watched it until it reached about £1m on the count thing and I switched off my phone. I couldn’t look. When I got home I couldn’t believe my eyes after I saw the final amount!”

“You wouldn’t believe the amount of people’s lives I’m going to change with this win,”

“My sister is a single parent in New Zealand with three kids, so I’m delighted because this means I will be able to help her out. I also have three brothers, my parents and a few aunts and uncles too.”

Despite the astronomical amount won, Sean still arrived at work the next day. As a chef at the family run restaurant, The Artisan Cookhouse, he felt that it was only right not to let his colleagues down on the busiest day of the year.

When Sean was asked if he has any plans to spend any of the money on himself, the lucky winner revealed:

“Ah, I’m sure the expected things will come too, after helping the family out. I might set up my own shop, probably a café, which would mean I can down scale and relax more.”

A spokesman for Paddy Power congratulated Sean on his big win, and as it was on Valentine’s Day, he couldn’t resist getting a message out to any prospective single ladies out there!

He said: “Roses are red, violets are blue, we found out Sean is single, so get in the queue!

 Paddy Power then added:

“We’re absolutely thrilled for Sean and the fact that he was sound enough to turn up for work for his bosses, Alister and his son Cormack Evans, the next morning makes the thought of his success all the sweeter.”
