€2.50 bet lands punter over €80k at Punchestown

7-fold Acca returns life changing sum of money


There was an absolutely massive win on the horses recently for a Kildare punter. They had played a €2.50 bet which smacked bookmaker Boylesports right where it hurts the most, in the pocket.

This was some amphibious bet that returned the life-changing sum of money. The bet was over seven races at the recent Punchestown Festival and it returned €84,000 and more than half of that total was actually through bonuses.

The sevenfold accumulator wager actually landed a pretty cool €36,373.62 on its own. However, then because of the best odds guaranteed that Boylesports offer, a staggering €48,277.71 was added on to the bet.

The best odds guarantee ensures that punters are paid out when they finish with bigger prices than what they were when the bet was struck.

Musical Slave (7/1), Zero Ten (13/8), Elimay (5/1) and Minella Indo (5/1) all did the business for the punter in the opening races of the day, before Ruby Walsh delivered a win on Kemboy, the jockey bringing the curtain down on his career.

So when 1/2 selection Colreavy and 13/8 shot Gypsy Island won the 6.40 and 7.45 respectively, that made it sevens wins from seven predictions for the punter.

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for Boylesports said: “We have no doubt that our big winner in Kildare will remember this day for a very long time and rightly so.

“To scoop over €84,000 from a flutter of just €2.50 is an absolute masterstroke, but they deserve every cent because not everyone can nail 7 winners on one racecard. We send them massive congratulations!”
