Prize Bond holder takes a Punt 07.01.16

SIX new Prize Bond millionaires were created in Ireland last year with the latest winner waiting 13 years to hit the jackpot.
The Euro was only in its infancy when the country’s latest millionaire purchased their winning Prize Bond (possibly with old Punts) in Kerry in 2002.
Thirteen years – and the rise and fall of the Celtic Tiger – later, the bond came up trumps in last month’s Millionaire Draw.
The six new Prize Bond millionaires created last year all hail from coastal counties with two from Dublin; two from Sligo; and one each from Wexford and Kerry.
Six new Prize Bond millionaires were created in 2015.
The Wexford winner was by far the luckiest, having purchased the bond only weeks before scooping the loot, in April 2015. More than 45,000 other Prize Bond holders received smaller prizes last year ranging from 50 euro to 1,000 euro. The bonds are a State Savings product offering Irish residents the chance to win tax-free cash prizes with their investment instead of getting deposit interest.
