Paddy’s Pick 5: One lucky punter pockets cool £/€30k as jackpot won in free racing game

That's some return on investment in the free-to-play Pick 5 horse racing game.


It may have taken three bites at the cherry but one lucky Paddy Power punter won the £/€30k jackpot after picking five winners at the Goodwood & Galway Festivals today.


With the initial €/£10k prize having rolled over to Thursday, a €/£30k jackpot was up for grabs for whoever picked the winners of the five races on offer.

And that clever sausage was postie Mark from Nottinghamshire who thought Paddy was pulling his leg when he delivered the good news.

Things started well for those who picked Royal Scotsman in the 2.25pm at Goodwood and quickly got a lot better when New London followed up in the 3pm. Nashwa won the 3pm to be the third winning favourite on the card, but 14/1 shot Prairie Falcon winning the next at Goodwood meant there was just 41 remaining punters left with potentially winning dockets going into the last race in the competition.

And when 22/1 poke Tudor City won the Galway Hurdle at 5.05pm this was soon whittled down to just one lucky winner.

However, the good news is it’s not over yet, as there’s still two more days to go in Paddy’s free-to-enter competition this week. Huzzah!
