One Paddy Power customer is better off to the tune of £250,000 this week after seeing the six-figure sum slide into their PP.com account thanks to a frankly ridiculously impressive run of five winning bets on Sunday evening.
But this savvy sort wasn’t waiting on an Edinson Cavani last-minute winner or Wolves card supremacy over Arsenal to be confirmed in the evening kick-off to lock-in a life-changing win.
Oh no, not on your nelly.
Rather, this newly-minted quarter-millionaire made their fortune with a fab fivefold on Sunday’s evening’s Daily Millions lottery draw in Ireland – yes, in case you’re living in 1995, just a reminder that you can bet on the lottery numbers now rather than playing the draw itself.
Also, those boy band-wannabe curtains you’ve grown will never look good. Ever.
Sunday evening’s draw saw this shrewdie, who only recently opened her account and is mainly a football and racing punter, nail five of the six winning balls – 2, 5. 8, 9, 25 and 30 if you want to check your ticket now – in the Daily Millions main draw.
Staggeringly, that would’ve paid out just €500 (in tears just thinking about it here) if they’d played the same numbers in the lottery draw itself.
So, that’s match five numbers in the lotto and you can just about afford a PS5 with the prize?
Not great that.
Fortunately, this punter placed a £5 acca on their numbers instead, which means they’ve woken up on Monday morning with a week’s worth of Paul Pogba’s wages in their metaphorical pocket.
That should take care of Christmas. And January. And February. And March…
What a smashing win.
