The windfall came after they bet on five numbers in the St Stephen's Day Lotto Plus One draw.

The customer, who wants to remain anonymous, would have seen a return of just €50 had they bought a National Lottery ticket for the same draw.

Boylesports spokesperson Aoife Heffron said that the bet was won on odds of 40,000/1.

"The customer had a bit of a sweat on St Stephen's Day when watching the Lotto Plus 1 draw as 6, 8, 19 and 28 were drawn, leaving their bet in the hands of the bonus ball, which completed their lucky streak when the number 4 dropped out," she said.

"We would like to congratulate them on their astonishing €10,000.25 win," she added.
