Celebrations In Meath As €0.25 Bet Beats Odds Of 33,000/1

The champagne was popping in County Meath on Friday night when a fortunate native landed the most timely of big wins thanks to their lucky numbers.

The anonymous punter had placed a tiny €0.25 bet in a BoyleSports shop in the county on Friday for that evening’s Main EuroMillions draw.

Their small investment stood to win them a four-figure sum if numbers 3, 12, 23 and 26 came out in the draw. When all four did indeed roll out, odds of 33,000/1 were smashed within seconds.

The lucky customer was able to walk off with a total of €8,250.25 when they collected their winnings just as December kicked in.
