A bookie from Lurgan has paid out £33k and more after a bet of £6 on the Irish Lotto won above £33k. According to Tommy French, on Wednesday his shop at William Street paid out the enormous winnings after a syndicate of workers beat the odds.
Tommy said that a man from Lurgan in his 40s visits two times each week to place a wager for the syndicate’s group of four employees. ‘At all times, they do similar figures and they do this two times each week.’
‘Essentially, the bet involves selecting four digits from the initial six which are drawn in the Irish Lotto. They did this on the Lotto Plus One,’ he stated. ‘The bet is a great one. For a stake that is small, there is the likelihood of massive returns. It is worth spending money on.
‘Mainly, they did it on an accumulator of £4. A bet on six figures is 8000-1; it signifies a £8k win for a bet of £1. On three digits from six figures in the Irish Lotto, it is 650 -1. It signifies a £1 bet nets £650.
Tommy said, ‘Ultimately, this group became winners of £33,306 on a stake of £6. According to the Lurgan bookie, he had previously paid out significant amounts of cash. He recalls a Moira man who was in possession of a horse. He visited frequently to back it.
Tommy revealed that around 20 years back, the horse was competing in the Gold Cup. ‘I was forced to pay the man £120k after his horse won.’ Tommy is making plans for more workers for the Grand National tomorrow when thousands of individuals place a bet on Aintree’s world popular race.
Because the race begins at almost 5 pm, it means there is no need to hurry to bet when the race began at 3pm,’ he explained. But, the shrewd bookmaker was not willing to offer a tip when requested for it.
