Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY BRYNMOR PATTISON

AN Irish punter missed out on a mega Euromil­lions jack­pot by a Lucky Star.

How­ever, the lo­cal player still scooped €333,913 in Tues­day night’s draw – one of four across Europe.

The win­ning Quick Pick ticket was sold at The Reeks Gate­way Cen­tra on the Tralee Road in Kil­lar­ney, Co Kerry.

The lucky num­bers for the Euromil­lions draw were 10, 13, 17, 21, 44 and the Lucky Stars were 1 and 10.

The win­ner came close to land­ing the €138mil­lion prize – miss­ing out by one Lucky Star. Mean­while, a Car­low punter is toast­ing a ma­jor Euromil­lions win af­ter net­ting €75,000 at a Boyle­sports shop.

The cus­tomer, who wishes to re­main anony­mous, bet on 10, 17 and 44 to be drawn.

Boyle­sports of­fers odds of 1500/1 for three num­bers to be se­lected in the Euromil­lions. The Car­low punter’s €50 stake re­sulted in a re­turn of €75,050.

The win took Boyle­sports’ Lotto pay­outs beyond the €300,000 mark since Satur­day af­ter a Co Kil­dare player scooped more than €250,000.

They had placed a €3 bet at 125,000/1 in Satur­day night’s Lotto draw.

Boyle­sports spokesman Lawrence Lyons said: “We’re see­ing life-chang­ing sums of money be­ing won on our Lotto bet­ting re­cently and we send huge con­grat­u­la­tions to the Car­low cus­tomer who only needed three num­bers to walk away with €75,000.

“The Car­low win rubbed salt in our wounds af­ter we paid out more than €257,000 to a Kil­dare man who staked just €3 on Satur­day night, so need­less to say the Lotto num­bers have made it a bruis­ing week for us at HQ.”
