One household in County Kildare is celebrating this week after a modest flutter landed a tasty four-figure sum from just three lucky Lotto numbers.
The anonymous customer placed a €5 treble on their BoyleSports account on Tuesday and was left hoping for the trio of numbers to come out in the EuroMillions Plus draw that evening.
They were up against odds of 1,500/1 for all three numbers to roll out, but within seconds their ambitious bet had struck gold as their selected numbers 17, 26 and 43 all dropped out of the machine.
The spectacular run of luck meant the punter was able to log back in to see their balance boosted by a tidy total of €7,505.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Our Kildare customer took aim at 1,500/1 odds for three numbers and their investment has worked out perfectly. We congratulate them for scooping such a tasty amount from just €5 and we hope they enjoy treating themselves.”
