Louth punter strikes gold as €5 turns into €7,500 profit

A local punter made a tidy profit of €7,500 in only a matter of minutes when a small flutter reaped huge dividends thanks to a run of lucky numbers this week.

The anonymous person struck their wager via their online BoyleSports account in County Louth for the Tuesday evening EuroMillions Plus draw. They picked three numbers out and placed a simple €5 treble on them all landing at odds of 1,500/1.

When 3, 32 and 34 all rolled out, the ambitious punt had paid off and meant the customer was able to log back into their account and swap their betslip for a grand total of €7,505.

Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “We must send huge congratulations over to our County Louth customer who only needed a small €5 investment to walk off with a tasty four-figure sum of €7,505. We hope they have a good time splashing out with their winnings!”
