A Cork punter kicked off their Halloween Bank Holiday weekend with a fright, but the good kind, when they scooped €16,500.50 thanks to their Euromillions bet.
The bet had the miniscule stake of just 50 cent on the four numbers 10, 16, 19 and 43 to be drawn from the EuroMillions draw on Friday night.
The numbers were drawn and defied odds of 33,000/1 seeing this Rebel bag a whopping €16,500.50. The numbers would have only returned €54 had they been done with the National Lottery.
Aoife Heffron, PR Executive for BoyleSports commented “We want to wish the Cork punter massive congratulations on their fantastic €16,500.50 windfall for their small 50 cent bet on the EuroMillions. It came just in time for the Halloween Bank Holiday weekend and we hope they enjoy spending their winnings.”
She added “A little definitely goes a long way when you chose to do your lucky numbers with BoyleSports, thanks to large odds like the 33,000/1 snapped up by this customer for four numbers. You certainly do not have to bet big to win big as this Rebel proved.”
