Lucky punter has incredible day turning €15 bet in Christmas windfall
A lucky punter in is celebrating a perfectly times Christmas bonus after they bagged a four-figure sum from a flutter on the horses.
The anonymous customer struck a €0.50 each-way Lucky 15 in a BoyleSports shop on Friday, parting with a total of €15 and picking four horses across the meetings at Exeter, Sedgefield and Dundalk.
The win was close to being scuppered at the first hurdle but 16/1 shot Findusatgorcombe just held on for a narrow victory by a head in the 3.15 at Exeter.
Within minutes, 6/1 pick Not What It Seems delivered in the 3.25 at Sedgefield, leaving a nervous wait for the evening action at Dundalk.
All eyes were on Sunset Nova in the 5.00 and a victory at 12/1 left them within touching distance, before 9/2 shot Settle For Bay made it four winners from four in the 7.30.
The prolific run allowed the punter to return to the shop to pick up a satisfying total of €6,657.16.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “We have to hand it to our customer for a savvy set of selections. They have been rewarded handsomely and we hope the winnings come in useful over the coming weeks.”
