Lucky Louth Punter Wins Just Shy Of €10,000

Cheltenham may be only round the corner but it was four simple lotto balls that cost BoyleSports just short of €10,000 ahead of their busiest week of the year.

One customer placed a €1 accumulator in one of BoyleSports’ County Louth stores on Saturday at odds of 7200/1 on four numbers in the 49s draw.

When numbers 7, 11, 14 and 24 rolled out in the 12.49pm draw on Saturday afternoon, it sent an initial €7201 into the pocket of the lucky customer.

Four €1 trebles at 650/1 using the same four numbers added a further €2604 to the winnings meaning the customer walked away with a stunning profit of €9800 from the €5 stake.
