Lucky Kilkenny punter turns €5 flutter into four-figure windfall
It took only three lucky numbers to spark the celebrations for a punter in Kilkenny after they landed a four-figure sum from a small flutter on the Lotto.
The anonymous customer placed a €5 wager in a BoyleSports shop in the county, hoping for three numbers to drop out in the main EuroMillions draw on Tuesday evening.
They were left waiting on numbers 6, 8 and 22 and the odds of 1,500/1 against all three rolling out soon shrunk when the draw got under way. Within seconds they had all rolled out and the coup was complete.
The run of good fortune allowed them to return to the shop and swap the €5 betslip for a grand total of €7,505.
BoyleSports spokesperson Lawrence Lyons said: “It only took three numbers so hats off to our customer from Kilkenny who made light work of the 1,500/1 odds. Their €5 investment has proved to be a wise one and we are delighted that their ambition has been well rewarded.”
