The anonymous custormer correctly predicted four numbers in Boylesports’ Euro Lucky Numbers Lottery draw.

A €1 bet was staked in the Glencar Shopping Centre store on last Tuesday’s draw.

The store’s manager, Linda Gibson, said it’s not the first big winner they’ve had. “We’re delighted that another one of our customers has been lucky enough to enjoy such a large win,” she said.

“We have Lottery draws daily in all our stores and regularly have big winners. The funny thing is most big winners continue to play and do the same numbers here twice a week”.

Whilst the winner had chosen their own numbers, Ms. Gibson said that Quick Picks are becoming more popular. “We’ve seen a huge increase in the levels of Quick Picks for all our lottery draws. It’s simple and saves time and people are used to doing them from National Lottery draws. And, as an added bonus for all Quick Pick customers, we run a weekly competition for a ree €10 bet”.
