Tony O’Reilly or ‘Tony 10’ as he was known online, was a gambler who lost his job, family, home and ended up in prison because of his addiction.
What began as a bet of €1 for the former Wexford postmaster, quickly turned to €10million and eventually his downfall leading to a prison sentence.
Tony speaks to Eamon about the heart-stopping moments in a Cyprus hotel room as his Wedding Ring was riding on an Epsom Derby win and the elation of winning over half a million in a weekend.
You can pick up Tony 10 in all major bookstores.
