Rebel Punter Rings In New Year With Stunning €24,750 Coup

One Cork native will not forget the first day of 2019 after they began the year in spectacular fashion, all thanks to a tiny €0.75 bet.

The anonymous punter placed the minute bet in one of our shops in the Rebel County on New Year’s Day and plumped for numbers 1, 11, 25 and 28 to come out in the first EuroMillions draw of 2019.

The bet was a massive 33,000/1 shot but those odds started to tumble as fast as the balls leaving the machine and by the time the five main numbers were out, all four of the customer’s picks were showing.

They were able to return to the shop and swap their betslip for a jaw-dropping total of €24,750.75.
