The weekend celebrations will be starting early for one punter in Donegal after their loose change was transformed into a handsome pay out on the Irish Lotto results.

The Donegal native popped into their local BoyleSports betting shop on Wednesday evening and placed a €1 accumulator on the Irish Lotto Plus 1 draw picking four of their lucky numbers.

The numbers selected were 9, 16, 27 and 32. The punter’s luck was in as all four numbers rolled out of the machine defying the massive odds of 7,500/1.

When the draw was completed the client called back into their local BoyleSports shop and exchanged their €1 slip for a stunning amount of €7,501.00, that took a matter of minutes to win.

Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports said, “Congratulations to our Co Donegal shop customer who turned €1 into a tremendous amount of €7,501! Their ambition deserves all the rewards and we hope they have a good time spending their winnings."
