Lucky Limerick Punter Converts 25 Cents Loose Change Into €8,250
A Limerick punter is thanking their lucky stars this weekend for a 25 cents investment, which was transformed into a mega sum of money in the blink of an eye.
The customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, placed the tiny accumulator in one of BoyleSports’ betting shops in County Limerick on Friday and picked four numbers to be drawn in the main EuroMillions draw.
With numbers 5, 7, 21 and 25 all written on the docket, the odds offered on all four rolling out of the machine that evening amounted to a staggering 33,000/1.
But the luck was in for the Limerick native and all four dropped, allowing them to return to the shop and pick up an astounding total of €8,250.25, which included the return of their miniscule stake.
Our Lotto customer was ambitious to say the least…
but fair play to them with odds of 33,000/1 sitting there to be shot at.
We can’t think of any better way to invest some loose change, so we would like to send sincere congratulations down to Limerick and say well done to the latest winner to catch us out with their lucky numbers.
