€0.25 Transformed Into €8.250 By Stroke Of Genius
A punter in County Wexford is toasting a coup to remember this week after a €0.25 bet landed a handsome Lotto payout after overcoming mammoth odds.
The customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, placed the tiny bet via their online account with us for Wednesday evening’s EuroMillions Plus draw.
They picked numbers 28, 30, 33 and 49 to come out and were left waiting on all four to drop in the hope of a tasty payout.
The masterstroke was complete when all four did indeed roll out, smashing odds of 33,000/1.
The lucky run of numbers meant the customer’s account was boosted by a tidy profit of €8,250 for their €0.25 investment.
