A number of players encountered technical problems as they tried to enter the Irish Lotto draw on Wednesday morning, and National Lottery officials have confirmed the issues were caused by a cyber attack. “Indications are that this morning’s technical issues were a result of a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack affecting our communications networks,” operator Premier Lotteries Ireland (PLI) said in a statement, adding that at no point was player data affected.
