Limerick Punter €16,500 Richer After 50 Cent Bet

We suffered a blow on Friday evening when a Limerick punter landed €16,500 from a tiny Lotto bet.

The lucky customer placed a simple 50 cent accumulator on the numbers 1, 15, 19 and 25 to land in Friday night’s highly anticipated EuroMillions draw.

Despite odds of 33,000/1 against it happening, all four numbers dropped…

…and sent a staggering €16,500 into the pocket of the Treaty County native.

Even with a massive jackpot up for grabs in Friday’s draw, the four numbers would only have paid €45 in the local newsagents.

The EuroMillions jackpot may have been won in Spain but champagne corks will be popping in Limerick too so we congratulate the punter whose 50 cent bet with us is now worth over 16 grand.
