A Dublin punter cash in on an ambitious accumulator and Lucky 15 from a bet placed on Friday. The punter struck a €1.50 each way accumulator and a €0.25 each way Lucky 15 bet at Boylesports. Four horses were picked for the Lucky 15 along with a acca build from races at Downpatrick.
The combined stake played was €10.50 and action was kicked off with a 7/1 winner Manomie. That was the price at which the horse was taken, so the punter got paid out at that price, despite Manomie winning at 5/1.
The punter also benefited from an early 8/1 price on their second selection for Pat’s Pearl who won at 6/1. Canadian Steel was the third horse home in the bet, cruising the field by thirteen lengths. So that left everything riding on the final leg of the Downpatrick action.
Centaur came through in the bet, beating out 11/8 favourite Global Society. The punter collected a handsome sum of €5,565.34 from the €1.50 each way accumulator and another €1,525.42 for the €0.25 each way Lucky 15.
Sarah Kinsella, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports said: “Well done to our customer who landed a massive accumulator after spending just €3 and a Lucky 15 spending €7.50 to leave with over €7,000. We wish our customer happy spending and congratulations”
Wednesday night’s racing this week returned a nice bit of profit from a bold bet by an Irish punter. A €50 four-fold accumulator on the horses was played for the evening’s action, all winners picked to win outright in their respective races.
First up on the list was Capofaro at Kempton at 3/1 odds, who set the ball rolling in the bet. Following that was a quick-fire double from the action at Cork. It was Highland Dress who got the win at 5/2 for the second leg of the bet, following by Balefire delivering at 11/4.
The final leg of the accumulator returned to Kempton, where the wager had started. The horse backed was Coverham and he duly obliged for the punter from a price of 5/2, competing the accumulator with BoyleSports.
The punter, from a pretty hefty chunk of stake, collected a sum of €9,187.50.
A Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Hats off to our Cork customer who made little work of some nicely prize winners to take us for €9,187.50. They were clearly dreaming big and we wish our customer the best of luck with their winnings”.
The comeback that Liverpool produced in the quarterfinals of their UEFA Champions League semi-final against Barcelona, will live long in memory. It was a stunning night of action at Anfield in which Liverpool miraculously overturned a 3-0 deficit from the first leg.
While there have been many stories of optimistic punters having cashed in on Liverpool’s 4-0 scoreline on the night, however one Irish punter took things just a little bit further with their efforts. They not only picked out the correct score but the correct first goalscorer too.
Liverpool got themselves off to a flying start when Divock Origi, filling in because neither Mo Salah or Roberto Firmino were available, popped up with the opening goal of the game in just the seventh minute. That was the platform on which they built their epic night.
The punter with miraculous foresight had played a €20 bet with Boylesports on the day of the game, for Divock Origi to score first and Liverpool to win 4-0 in what at the time, must have felt like nothing too much more than an optimistic scorecast.
The bet was taken at 215/1 odds and even though the first goalscorer was nailed early on, there was still nervous tension around, waiting for Liverpool to get their fourth goal. It arrived, with Origi getting his second off an opportunistic corner kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold. That meant the bet collected a sum of €4,320.
Lawrence Lyons of Boylesports said there were a few optimists who backed Liverpool to win 4-0 at odds of 50/1.
“A huge pat on the back goes to one of our punters in Limerick who nailed the 4-0 scoreline along with Origi scoring first at odds of 215/1. It was a cracking bet and I wonder if they could advise us on this weekend’s Lotto numbers.”
A huge sum of money was won recently by a Kildare punter, who enjoyed a stunning day of racing success. They had played a €2.50 bet too leave bookmaker Boylesports digging deep into their pockets.
Big wins like that don’t come about without some ambitious betting of course. This successful bet was sevenfold accumulator from the recent Punchestown Festival and it returned €84,000. Staggeringly, more than half of that total was actually through bonuses.
The 7 fold acca actually won €36,373.62 on its own. However, when the bet was settled, the best odds guaranteed that Boylesports offer bumped the winnings up to a whole new level. It added a whopping €48,277.71 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!”
Tiger Roll became the first horse to secure back to back Grand National successes since Red Rum’s famous achievement in 1974. Gordon Elliott’s star stayer turned up at Aintree once again and showed the field what he was made of by achieving the rare feat.
There had been so much support for Tiger Roll going into the 2019 Grand National that he was as short as 7/2 with bookmakers to get the win under his belt.
One punter at Boylesports had included Tiger Roll in a €2 each-way Lucky 15 bet from Saturday’s racing at Aintree.
4/1 Ornua kicked the bet into gear as the first selection, before If The Cap Fits, backed at 13/2, and 6/1 shot Kildisart triumphed to make it three wins from the opening legs of the Lucky 15. So that left everyone hanging on Tiger Roll and his title defence at the Grand National.
With his victory in the National, it meant that 15 bets had landed on that Lucky 15 ticket, which returned a grand total of €7,930.78 from a €60 stake. The return included special bonuses for two fo the winner had been at bigger SP’s.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for Boylesports said: “Hats off to our Offaly customer who is toasting Tiger Roll’s Grand National victory more than most. It must have been a nail-biting watch in the big one, but their canny picks have paid off and we hope they enjoy a well-deserved treat with their winnings.”
Boylesports have announced a big winner on the horse racing from Wolverhampton last Friday. The punter in question got a huge €9,632 from a bet of just €15 on the all-weather card. The stake itself was on a 0.5 each way Lucky 15 bet.
So it was an ambitious gamble but one that managed to pay off at the end of the night. Diamond Reflection (7/1) ran home in the 5.10 race at Wolverhampton to kick the beat off into winning gear. Then Grey Destiny (12/1) War And Glory (7/1) followed it up in the 6.15 and 6.45 meetings.
Then there was a half hour wait before the final pick of the night took to the track. That final runner was an 8/1 shot Perfect Refuge, who came home to see the punter claim the massive winning in what BoyleSports described as a ‘savvy’ selection from their customer.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “These horses weren’t all favourites so we have to tip our hats the savvy picks made by our online customer. It was the perfect start to the year and we hope they enjoy splashing out with their winnings which nearly hit €10,000 from their €15 stake.”
