Punter wins €8,250 with a 25 cent stake

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

A PUNTER in County Wex­ford is toast­ing a coup to re­mem­ber this week af­ter a 25 cent bet landed a hand­some Lotto pay­out, over­com­ing mam­moth odds.

The cus­tomer, who wishes to re­main anony­mous, placed the tiny bet via their on­line Boyle­Sports ac­count for last Tues­day evening’s EuroMil­lions Plus draw. They picked num­bers 28, 30, 33 and 49 to come out and were left wait­ing on all four to drop in the hope of a tasty pay­out.

The mas­ter­stroke was com­plete when all four did in­deed roll out, smash­ing odds of 33,000/1. The lucky run of num­bers meant the cus­tomer’s ac­count was boosted by a tidy profit of €8,250 for their €0.25 in­vest­ment.
