Video: The moment when a Monaghan man wins €650 on a treble bet is absolutely priceless

Meet the newest fan of the Ivory Coast

Meet the newest fan of the Ivory Coast.

When it comes to placing bets on football matches, JOE has definitely lost more than we’ve won but there’s no sweeter moment than when a winning bet comes in.

JOE reader James Geelan sent us in this video of his friend, Seamus Courtney from Castleblayney, reacting to Wilfried Bony’s goal for the Ivory Coast which put them 2-1 up against Algeria in the African Nations Cup.

The Elephant’s eventually won 3-1 to progress into the next round but Seamus’ reaction is priceless and one that every football fan can relate to.

We’re reliably informed that it’s also Seamus’ birthday and the good news keeps coming for him, because his wining €5 treble bet got him €650, which covered the costs of the flights and accommodation that he recently booked in Las Vegas.

Take a look.
