A software engineer from Dublin, who admitted to never watching Winning Streak in his life before he got on the National Lottery TV game show, won a cool €59,000 recently. 35 year old Robert Smyth from Aylesbury Dublin 24 was as surprised as anybody to hear that his name was called out to appear on Winning Streak last week after he confessed that he rarely buys a ticket or even watches the hit RTÉ One show! Robert has his mother in-law Rose to thank for his appearance on the show, as she gifted him a scratch card for his recent 35th birthday, which led to him sending the lucky three-star entry which got him on the show. Robert has been married to wife, Triona for the past five years and they have two children, Sean (4) and Saorlaith (2.) He was joined in the Winning Streak studio with all of his family which included his dad, Sean, mother, Marie, sister, Carol and some of his aunts, uncles and cousins.
