Irish girl scoops gold card at Coppers after Real Madrid winning bet

After correctly predicting yesterday’s landslide victory for Real Madrid over Bayern Munich, a Dublin nightclub has rewarded the punter for her offer of generosity.

Niamh Gillece made a tidy windfall after Madrid’s thrashing and offered to purchase drinks in a well-known Dublin establishment in celebration.

The punter  took up Paddy Power’s odds of 200/1 that Carlo Ancelotti’s side would defeat the reigning champions at the Allianz Arena last night, with her €4 bet returning a cool €804.

Few others predicted such a lansdslide result, but such was her belief that she tweeted the docket beforehand offering not only to pay for drinks in Copper Face Jacks, but also to pay for admission into the nightclub.

The happy punter has been basking in the glory today and is set for Paddy Power’s Wall of Fame and has also had a number of interviews on radio to explain her winning bet.

Today Coppers sent her a gold card so she won’t have to worry about paying in to the nightclub ever again. A good night’s work for Niamh.
