A lucky punter is celebrating this week after scooping more than €110,000 on a €2 bet on Sunday.
The Athenry man won the money on a Tote Super7 bet which requires punters to pick the winner in each of seven races selected by the Tote.
A spokesperson for the Tote said ‘Congratulations to the lucky winner on his fantastic scoop. We’re delighted to see an Irish high street punter winning such a prestigious bet and it just shows that punters can still win big with a small stake.’
Noel Russell from Ladbrokes, who was the teller who sold the customer the ticket, said: "He is a regular in here, and a shrewd punter.
"I am delighted myself to see a local customer having such a great win."
The Tote Super7 bet has only been won 5 times since its launch in September 2008 and this is the first win on Irish soil.
