Meath Native Smashes 33,000/1 Odds To Win Lotto Bet

There were celebrations in County Meath this week when a punter scooped a massive five-figure sum after a chance investment worth only €0.50.

The anonymous customer placed a tiny accumulator bet in a BoyleSports shop in the county on Tuesday afternoon on four numbers to come out in that evening’s EuroMillions Plus draw.

They were left hoping that numbers 3, 8, 12 and 38 rolled out and when they did, their tiny bet had overcame mammoth odds of 33,000/1.

The customer was able to return to the shop the following day to collect a jaw-dropping cheque worth €16,500.50.
