A woman from County Louth could not believe her luck when she won €30,000 having played the €3 online Honeypot game.
“I was in total shock when I saw the €30,000 on the screen” the woman said. “I play the game about once a week and usually win small amounts, here and there.
“When I saw the top prize flash up, I was in total disbelief – it definitely is the most I’ve ever won playing online!
“It seems that bit more real now since receiving my cheque but I haven’t told anyone just yet – it’s a tough secret to keep,” she said.

The online player is looking forward to putting her winnings to good use now:
“Well we can’t go on holidays or anything like that at the moment with Covid so home refurbishments will take centre stage. There are a few bits that I’ve been wanting to do for a while around the house so I’m delighted to get those started and to treat the family to a few nice things as well - it’s certainly a good time for a win.”
The Louth woman was one of two players to win big yesterday, the other winner was a woman living in County Donegal who won the top prize of €75,000 playing the €5 Digital All Cash Platinum game
