Lotto players claim missed chance to win €19m jackpot amid ‘technical difficulties’

Published

on

Some social media users are claiming a missed chance to win this evening’s record €19 million Lotto jackpot after the National Lottery experienced “technical difficulties”.

The €19.06 million jackpot, which has been rolling since June to surpass the previous record of €18.96 million, was not won in this evening’s draw.

In a post on social media ahead of the draw on Saturday evening, the National Lottery said its website and app were experiencing “some technical difficulties” due to high traffic volumes.

“Our technical teams are currently working to rectify the issue. Thank you for your patience while we try and resolve the issue,” the post said.

“Tickets for tonight’s #Lotto draw can still be purchased in-store before 7.45pm.”

A number of social media users called for this evening’s draw to be postponed until the technical difficulties had been resolved.

A potential winner of Saturday’s draw would have become the biggest ever jackpot winner in Ireland.

As the jackpot is now capped at over €19 million, no additional money will be added until it is won. The funds which would normally be added to the jackpot will instead go to the next lower prize tier at which there are winners.

The National Lottery has estimated that an additional €1 million in extra prize money will flow down to the next prize tier as a result of the cap.

Tickets for tonight’s draw could be purchased in-store, online or through the National Lottery app before the 7.45pm cut-off point this evening.

The National Lottery has been contacted for comment.

Nigerian feminists have urged the Federal Government, through the National Human Rights Commission, to probe the forced abortions report allegedly perpetuated by the military in the northeastern part of Nigeria.

An international news agency, Reuters, had accused the Nigerian Army of running a programme where forceful abortions were carried out on female victims of Boko Haram/Islamic State in West African Province.

The report claimed that the Army carried out the abortions without the persons’ consent and that at least 10,000 pregnancies had been illegally terminated.

These were contained in an investigation published by the news agency in December, 2022.

The probe, according to Reuters, was based on the accounts of 33 victims, hospital workers, and security officials, as well as documents gathered.

Reacting in a statement obtained by The PUNCH on Tuesday, the feminists, namely, Chioma Agwuegbo, Fadekemi Akinfaderin, Dr Leena Hoffmann, Ifeoma Ikwueme, Azeenarh Mohammed, Nana Nwachukwu, Lola Okolosie, Omolara Oriye and Buky Williams, said, “Friday marks six weeks since the Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Lucky Irabor, called on the NHRC to launch an investigation into the abortion report.”

They therefore called on the NHRC to make public its plans to take the investigation forward, expand its remit to look at the alleged killings of children, and commit to doing so in a victim-centred way.
