Midlands punter wins €6,000 with incredible run of bets during lunch

Midlands punter wins €6,000 with incredible run of bets during lunch

A Laois punter made full use of their Friday lunchtime when a flutter turned into a stunning four-figure windfall in the blink of an eye.

The anonymous customer placed a €3 patent bet costing €21 in total on three selections across virtual greyhound and horse races in their local BoyleSports shop on Friday afternoon.

They only needed one of the selections to win to guarantee a profit and that was under their belt almost immediately as the trap 2 dog crossed the line first in the 1.21 race at Sandy Hills at 11/1. But things were about to get even better as 10/1 shot Put It On Red won the 1.24 at Hunterstown.

There was barely time for the nerves to kick as only one minute later, the 1.25 at Portman Park was off and running and when Fixative landed the spoils at 11/1, the bet had clicked and triggered a staggering quickfire bonus.

All three selections landed in rapid time, meaning the lucky Laois native was able to walk off with a profit of €6,060 for 5 minutes’ worth of action.

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “It was a frantic Friday lunchtime for our Laois customer but fair play to them taking the punt and while the races were virtual, their returns are very real and we hope they enjoy celebrating at the weekend with their winnings.”
