Buncrana man has €163,000 Wining Streak 07.10.19

A B&B owner from Inishowen spun the Winning Streak Wheel on Saturday night’s show and won €100,000 bringing his total haul from the TV game show to €163,000.
Hilary Keller from Buncrana navigated the show to perfection, winning an impressive €60,000 in cash as well as a holiday to Venice, worth €3,000. Hilary’s luck did not end there as he ended up being the lucky player that got the chance to spin the iconic Winning Streak Grand Prize Wheel.
His spin resulted in the ball landing in the €100,000 segment after it took a few bounces either side, as the RTÉ studio audience fell silent in anticipation.

Hilary spoke of how last Saturday, while watching the show, he was left with his head in his hands as his wife, Margaret, danced around the sitting room in excitement after they watched Hilary’s three-star scratch card being pulled from the drum.
Hilary and Margaret run the Town Clock B&B in Buncrana. The couple, who are well travelled people, have three children living all over the world and even welcomed their daughter and grandchild home from Abu Dhabi for the Winning Streak show.
Their daughter Louise, who works in Abu Dhabi, was so excited at her dad’s Winning Streak appearance that she booked a flight to come home to cheer him on from the audience alongside her son, Oliver. Hilary’s two sons Declan and Gerard were watching on the RTÉ player from their respective homes in Cape Town, South Africa and Perth, Australia.
The Buncrana couple have run the Town Clock B&B for the past 27 years. With the winnings from the show, Hilary and Margaret plan to do some more travelling and think Route 66 in the US may be on the cards.
