Unless you’re table tennis aficionado or a Dinamo Minsk ultra, it’s hard to find a betting interest.

But it’s not impossible.

For instance, one very canny bettor made the most of Paddy Power Lotteries last week to turn 0.25p – you wouldn’t get a thimbleful of handy for that, even if the pubs were open – into £3,750 by betting on five numbers to come out in the Irish Daily Millions Lottery draw on Saturday.

Better odds than you’ll get on a home favs Premier League acca on normal Saturday, that’s for sure.

The lucky combination on Saturday of 11, 22, 27, 36 and 37 in the daily draw paid off in style for this Worcester-based wagerer.

Definitely a few birthdays in there – that’s the secret, I hear.
