Irish Lotto Punter Pulls €11,302 Christmas Cracker

A Dublin punter is popping the champagne already after an early Christmas present landed in the form of an impressive five-figure windfall on the Lotto.

The customer placed a €1 wager in a BoyleSports shop in the capital on Saturday, picking four numbers to come out of the Irish Lotto Plus 1 draw, as well as a second €1 accumulator on the numbers coming out with the bonus ball included.

They were left waiting on numbers 27, 30, 35 and 40 but the bonus wasn’t even required as all rolled out within the main six numbers drawn.

One bet overcame odds of 3,800/1, while the other made light work of the 7,500/1 chances that the four numbers would land in the main six. The staggering run of luck meant the customer was able to return to the shop the next day to collect a spectacular total of €11,302.
