Monaghan Winner Walks Off With Profit From Small EuroMillions Wager

A household in Co Monaghan is revelling in four figures’ worth of winnings after they took on massive odds and won thanks to just three lucky numbers.

An anonymous punter staked just €4 via their online BoyleSports account in the county on Friday and placed it in on three numbers to drop in the main EuroMillions draw later that evening at odds of 1,500/1.

The odds however took a tumble as their chosen numbers, 1, 10 and 26 all rolled out of in quick succession of each other and in a matter of minutes, the €4 betslip shot up to a stunning value of €6,004.

To scoop such an amount of cash from a €4 flutter must be very satisfying. We have to admire their ambition.
