One of Europe’s longest running game shows, Winning Streak returns to our screens on Saturday nights at 8.20pm on RTÉ One – with five more players hoping to win up to €500,000 on the Grand Prize Wheel.
The popular gameshow, which sees popular duo Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy in their fifth year as co-presenters, first appeared on RTÈ back in September 1990 and since then a massive 5,900 people have taken part, winning in excess of €167 million in prizes.
Speaking ahead of the return of this iconic RTÉ gameshow, presenter Marty Whelan said: ‘It’s great to be back on Saturday evenings as everyone’s routines go back to normality after the wonderful Christmas break. I’m itching to help the first five Winning Streak players of 2018 to win some New Year cash!! Winning Streak is such a great Irish institution and the fact that it is in its 29th season is a true testament to how it captures the imagination of viewers, both young and old.’
Sinead Kennedy said: "The best part of working on this show is meeting the five players every week and getting to know them. You really get the sense of what appearing on the show means for the participants, their families and friends. It’s amazing fun."
