Paddy Power Casino have revealed how a Northern Irish chef turned up to work at a restaurant on their busiest day of the year, just hours after he netted a staggering £4.2 million – the biggest ever online win in the history of the company.
Sean Doyle (33), from Newcastle, Co Down placed a £10 stake on an online slot game called Mars Attacks and struck it rich when he won the Jackpot King Delux promotion at the site. But Doyle kept his feet firmly on planet earth when he woke up the next morning and arrived promptly for work at 9am at The Artisan Cookhouse.
Less than 12 hours beforehand, the singleton, who has been an online gaming customer with Paddy Power for just six months, had won an jaw-dropping total of £4,283,863.55 – a record-breaking sum for a Paddy Power online casino customer.
Sean described how he watched in utter disbelief as the money dial on his screen began to increase towards the total winning figure.But he admits he couldn’t bear to wait the 10 seconds it took to hit the £4.2million mark. “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!” he told Paddy Power.
“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.”
Asked if he has any plans to spend any portion of the lump sum on himself, the generous Newcastle native 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.”
