Stunning Virtual Bet Lands Very Real €64,500 For Longford Punter
A punter in Co. Longford is revelling in a spectacular win this week after a flutter of under €5 on virtual horse racing was transformed into a mega five-figure windfall.
The anonymous punter walked into a BoyleSports shop in Longford on Thursday and struck a €0.30 Lucky 15 on four horses at the virtual track Steepledowns, amounting to a total stake of €4.50.
The ambitious wager overcame a major hurdle when 40/1 shot Norcombe won the 2.45 race, ensuring a profit before the remaining three selections had even ran. But things got even better when Peony Pepper, Carolina Clash (both 14/1) and Yarmouth Place (18/1) all conquered their odds to make it four winners from four.
With all selections winning, the punter was able to swap their €4.50 betslip for a jaw-dropping total of €64,511.70.
We have to send huge congratulations to our Longford customer. They proved the big wins don’t require significant stakes and we wish them all the best splashing out.
