Tiny €0.40 Flutter In Dublin Scoops Over €13,000 In Lotto Winnings
The champagne was popping in the capital on Friday night after a lucky punter transformed some loose change into a whopping five-figure windfall following a burst of Lotto luck.
The anonymous punter placed a €0.40 accumulator in a BoyleSports shop in Dublin and picked four numbers to be drawn in the EuroMillions Plus draw.
All four numbers faced odds of 33,000/1 to land, but when 8, 11, 16 and 22 all dropped out of the machine, the odds were smashed and the big win was in the bag.
The run of good fortune allowed them to return to the shop and exchange their betslip for an astounding total of €13,200.40.
Sometimes just a small stake can go a long way and we have to hand it to our customer in Dublin for their ambitious approach.
We wish them huge congratulations on an amazing start to the new year.
