A County Clare punter is toasting a stroke of fortune after €2 worth of speculative bets bagged them a stunning payout of over €8,000.
The anonymous customer made their weekend one to remember by placing a €1 bet in a BoyleSports shop in Clare on Saturday afternoon, picking four numbers to be drawn in that evening’s main Irish Lotto draw.
They needed numbers 8, 11, 18 and 22 to land in the draw at mammoth odds of 7,500/1, but incredibly they all rolled out within the main six numbers to trigger an initial payout of €7,501.
But the customer’s luck didn’t end there, because they also placed €1 on three of the numbers to come out at odds of 625/1, adding €626 to their winnings and securing a grand total payout of €8,127.
We have to applaud our ambitious Clare customer who parted with only €2 on Saturday but finished the weekend over €8,000 richer.
They were thinking big and made little work of the 7,500/1 odds, so we hope they enjoy treating themselves with their winnings.
