An Irish man picked up the biggest online win in the history of Paddy Power from a $10 stake. But Sean Doyle, a chef at the Artisan Cookhouse in Downpatrick, United Kingdom, proved that the money would not change him as he still turned up to work the next day after becoming a millionaire.
Sean was just having fun with friends as they placed bets on Paddy Power’s online game “Mars Attacks” on Wednesday night, February 13. The 33-year-old chef had been playing the game for six months, and finally won!
“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!”
Sean’s winnings amounted to £4,283,863.55 ($5.5 million).
“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. I might set up my own shop, probably a café, which would mean I can downscale and relax more.”
A spokesman for Paddy Power said:
“Roses are red, violets are blue, we found out Sean is single, so get in the queue!
We’re used to being down a few quid after Valentine’s Day, but this record-breaking win takes the biscuit.
We’re absolutely thrilled for Sean and the fact that he was sound enough to turn up for work for his bosses, Alister his son Cormack Evans, the next morning makes the thought of his success all the sweeter.”
Despite his massive win, Sean showed up for work the next day. Knowing it was going to be a busy day at work as it was Valentine’s Day, the instant millionaire didn’t have the heart to abandon his boss and colleagues on that day.

Woman Shares Online Shopping Fail And The Internet Can’t Stop Laughing
“According to the sizing chart, I would fit this dress well. I didn’t.”
The challenging thing about online shopping is that buyers do not have the luxury of inspecting products upclose until they've made the purchase. One woman from Napier, New Zealand learned this the hard way despite her best efforts to ensure that she gets the best out of the deal.
Shopper Michaela Smith saw a nice dress being sold online and so she wanted to buy it. The blue and white dress had a retro vibe and had pink flamingos for its design.
To make sure that she gets the right size, she measured herself twice before placing the order. She was sure she's a 4XL. Much to her dismay, what eventually arrived was not only smaller, a 3XL, but the dress also obviously looked a bit different from what she expected....
