Irish Lottery bosses blamed a service outage in Telefonica’s 3G infrastructure, which hit the network of 3,500 authorised retailers just after 9am on Wednesday. Other businesses in Ireland and across Europe were also reportedly affected by the telecommunications issues which caused the Irish Lotto’s deferment.
The last time anyone banked the Irish Lotto jackpot was Wednesday 10th December 2014, when one player matched all six main numbers to scoop €2.8 million. It has rolled over ever since and now stands at its highest amount since Wednesday 4th June 2014, when a single player claimed a sweet €12.1 million.

For your chance to grab a €10 million windfall, you can visit any authorised retailer across Ireland, where terminals are now back to work in anticipation of this evening’s massive draw, or you can buy Irish Lotto tickets online.
