Life-Changer! Galway Punter Tranforms Small Lotto Bets Into Mega €114,013
Christmas came early and in incredible fashion for a Galway native this weekend when small wagers on their lucky Lotto numbers triggered a six-figure jackpot.
The anonymous customer placed two bets in a BoyleSports shop in the county on Friday, the first being a small €3 wager on numbers 9, 10, 28 and 41 to come out in the main EuroMillions draw on Friday night.
Amazingly, against odds of 33,000/1, all four numbers came out, meaning the €3 investment was now worth a staggering €99,003.
However the run of good fortune didn’t end there for Galway’s big winner, because they had placed a €10 treble on the same numbers, leaving out the number 41. That bet overcame odds of 1,500/1, adding a cool €15,010 to their loot.
That saw the total winnings smash through the six-figure barrier, meaning the customer was able to return to the shop and pick up a gigantic cheque for a grand total of €114,013.
It’s delightful to see such a life-changing amount of money go into the hands of an ambitious customer who took a chance at mega odds with small stakes.
We send huge congratulations over to Galway and we hope the monumental win turns this one into a Christmas they will never forget.
