Punter wins €8,250 with a 25 cent stake
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.
