Co. Cork Customer Picked 26, 32, 43 & 49

Gambling is addictive, and can be disasterious, however -health warnings aside – once in a while people do win. A Co Cork customer had a Tuesday night to remember when their lucky numbers were drawn in the EuroMillions main draw resulting in a whopping €69,004 payout.

The bet, which consisted of a €2 accumulator at odds of 34,000/1, was sold in one of BoyleSports’ North Cork shops and bagged the punter a total of €69,004 . The winning numbers were 26, 32, 43 and 49.

Had the numbers been placed with the National Lottery, the customer would have received a mere return of €22.40.


Leon Blanche, Head of Communications for BoyleSports commented “We would like to sincerely congratulate our Co. Cork customer on their massive €69,004 win for the small stake of €2.”

He added “Numbers betting in BoyleSports shops continues to attract more and more punters daily with its popularity rising due to the huge returns on small stakes. Had the numbers been placed with the National Lottery, a mere €22.40 would have been the return.”
