Christmas windfall for a lucky Kilkenny person!

Christmas is going to be extra special for one Kilkenny person who has just won €8,250.25 after placing a 25 cent bet on the Euromillions!

The Kilkenny punter miraculously turned 25 cent into an incredible €8,250.25 thanks to their quick thinking.

The customer of BoyleSports, who wishes to remain anonymous, took their loose change of 25 cent and put their faith in a quick pick on Friday’s EuroMillions Main Draw. The numbers chosen for the plucky punter were 12, 29, 42 and 44.

When all four numbers were drawn they defied monstrous odds of 33,000/1 and secured a fantastic return of €8,250.25.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Christmas has most certainly come early for our Kilkenny customer who scooped an incredible €8,250.25 for the tiny 25 cent quick pick on the EuroMillions. Wishing them all the very best whilst spending their winnings and hoping it makes for a very special Christmas.”
