€1.50 Wager Returns Four-Figure Bonus
One Cork native will be able to pounce on the January sales in style after their weekend was made by a stunning Lotto bet that returned a tidy four-figure sum.
The anonymous punter placed their bet in a BoyleSports shop in the county during the week and picked four numbers to roll out in Saturday evening’s main Irish Lotto draw. They were left waiting on numbers 3, 19, 30 and 33 to come out having invested just €1.50 against odds of 3,800/1.
The odds however took a tumble as three of the numbers rolled out within the main six, leaving the punter with the most nervous of waits on the bonus ball landing in their favour.
When the number 3 was selected, the bet had clicked and the customer was able to return to the shop to pick up a handsome total of €5,701.50.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “We send huge congratulations down to our Cork customer for taking advantage of the odds in such style and proving that big wins don’t necessarily require big stakes. We hope they have a great time spending their winnings.”
