Large “Lotto” Win in Cork
A BoyleSports shop customer from County Cork landed a big win in the lotto on Saturday night as the lucky punter placed a €2 accumulator on four numbers in the Irish Lotto draw.
The anonymous punter picked out four numbers in the Irish Lotto with a stake of €2. The customer’s luck was in when the numbers just kept coming out of the machine on Saturday night as all four numbers of 1, 5, 24 and 26 were drawn to land the big prize at odds of a whopping 3800/1.
When all the numbers were drawn, the County Cork native was able to return to their local shop and walk off with a jaw-dropping total of €7,602 from a stake of €2.
Sarah Kinsella Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Congratulations are for our County Cork shop customer who turned €2 into a tremendous amount of €7,602! Their ambition deserves all the rewards and we hope they have a good time spending their winnings”.Follow TheCork.ie (The Online Newspaper for Cork, Ireland) on social media
