A lucky Irish punter has managed to scoop €16,500 - after a 50c bet on Friday's EuroMillions draw.

The person, who is from Co Limerick, placed a bet on an accumulator at odds of 33,000/1.

Despite the massive odds, the numbers 1, 15, 19 and 25 were drawn and the punter netted a huge return.

Speaking to the Limerick Leader, Leon Blanche, Head of Communications for Boylesports said: "The EuroMillions jackpot may have been won in Spain but champagne corks will be popping in Limerick too after a punter’s 50 cent bet with us is now worth over 16 grand."

He added: “It’s not the first time this week we’ve been caught out by a shrewd punter feasting on our huge Lotto odds and we congratulate the latest customer to take advantage of our fantastic odds.”
