Lucky Wicklow punter wins over €11,000 on €3 Lotto bet
WHILE Ireland enjoyed big wins in both the Lotto and Euromillions this week, one Co Wicklow punter enjoyed €11,000 windfall of their own thanks to a lucky Lotto draw.
The Boylesports customer from the Garden County received the perfect humpday pick-meup after placing a €3 bonus accumulator bet on four numbers in Wednesday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw at a branch in Wexford.
As they chose to include the bonus ball, they received odds of 3,800/1 that their numbers 5, 13, 24, 37 would come up.
As the balls started to drop from the machine, the odds gradually tumbled until they were eventually smashed resulting in the Wicklow native pocketing a cool €11,403.
Aoife Heffron, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: ‘We would like to send huge congratulations to our Wicklow customer who hit us for a spectacular €11,403 payout for their €3 bet on four profitable numbers. The very best of luck to them whilst splashing out with their winnings.’
