A County Donegal punter found reason to celebrate at the weekend when they took a punt at some virtual horses and landed a handsome four-figure sum.
The anonymous customer struck a €10 tricast on their BoyleSports account, picking out three horses at the virtual race at Down Boyle at 11.19am on Sunday morning.
The ambitious wager required Knockabout (15/2), Top Secret (6/1) and Northern Soul (11/1) to finish first, second and third in that order but the odds were smashed when that’s exactly what happened to trigger the payout.
The punter was then able to log back in and see their account bolstered by the tasty total of €5,992.50, all from the €10 stake on one race.
It only took three clicks and a €10 wager but our Donegal customer has ended up nearly €6,000 richer in the blink of an eye.
We congratulate them for taking a chance and hope the winnings go down well.
