Lucky Wicklow punter scoops €14,000 windfall from €4 Lotto bets
A lucky county Wicklow punter received an welcome boost to their finances over the weekend after they scooped a whopping five figure sum from a couple of modest Lotto bets.
The Garden County customer placed two winning wagers in a BoyleSports shop on Saturday, the most ambitious of which was a €2 accumulator on four numbers at odds of 6,500/1.
Things went down to the wire as numbers 7, 38, and 47 all landed within the main six, but it was only when 14 rolled out as the bonus ball that the celebrations could begin.
That pocketed the local punter an initial €13,002, but they added a further €1,242 when a treble on numbers 14, 38 and 47 overcame odds of 620/1.
In the end, the total investment of €4 was transformed into a grand total of €14,244.
BoyleSports spokesperson Lawrence Lyons said: “We have to congratulate our lucky county Wicklow customer on their big win and we’ve no doubt they’ll be basking in the glory having parted with only €4 for the pleasure.”
