Lucky punter scoops €40,000
A lucky Wexford punter is laughing all the way to the bank after scooping €40,000.
The player picked out six numbers to come out of the BoyleSports 49's evening draw on Thursday.
The customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, placed a €40 bet on 5, 9 and 32 from six numbers and €40 on 5, 9, and 32 from seven numbers.
The two bets defied their respective odds of 650/1 and 350/1, returning €26,040 and €14,040, which when combined totalled the monumental windfall of €40,800.
Spokeswoman for BoyleSports, Aoife Heffron said: 'We want to wish the Wexford punter who bagged €40,800 on their savvy 49's Teatime draw bet all the best whilst spending their fantastic winnings and want to offer our sincerest congratulations.'
