A lucky Cork punter landed a massive windfall on St Stephen’s Day out of a mere 25c bet.

The Corkonian placed a miniscule 25c bet on five numbers of Saturday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw.

The numbers were 4, 6, 8, 19 and 28.

The lucky winner defied odds of 40,000/1 and won €10,000.25.

The numbers were worth €50 in Saturday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw, according to a statement by Boyle Sports.

Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports said: “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.”
