An incredible piece of good fortune

Offaly punter turns 50 cent into €16,500

An Offaly punter joined a host of winning BoyleSports customers on Friday night when their EuroMillions bet saw them bag €16,500.50. 

The customer placed just 50 cent on four numbers, 5, 8, 13 and 31, to be drawn from Friday’s EuroMillions main draw. Once all four numbers were revealed, it ensured their €0.50 had been transformed into €16,500.50.

The Offaly punter wasn’t the only one who scooped an impressive windfall as a result of the numbers 5, 8, 13 and 31 as an online customer and Cork customer won €82,502.50 and €16,500.50 respectively after they also backed those four numbers in the same draw. 

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented “It’s great to see our customers take a small stake such as 50 cent and walk away with €16,500.50 after backing their lucky numbers with BoyleSports.”

She added “This is the fourth customer to win big on Friday’s EuroMillions draw with two Cork customers scooping a combined €27,000 and an online customer claiming the life-changing amount of €82,502 for their €2.50 bet on four numbers. We want to send all our winning customers our sincerest congratulations.”
