Lotto customers looking to purchase a ticket experienced problems earlier today as machines went down as a result "technical difficulties".

The National Lottery confirmed that machines nationwide - which were out of service for a number of hours - are currently back in operation.

It now appears that the stoppage was due to a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service).

"Indications are that this morning's technical issues were as a result of a DDOS attack affecting our communications networks," a statement from the Lottery said.

"The issues were resolved by the National Lottery's DDOS protection systems, limiting disruption and restoring all operations within two hours.

"This incident is still under investigation. However, we can confirm that at no point was the National Lottery gaming system or player data affected."
