THE NATIONAL LOTTERY website was reported to have crashed for a period last night, after it was announced that the winning Euromillions ticket worth a staggering €88.5 million was sold in Ireland.

It is not yet known where the ticket was sold, or whether it was an individual or a syndicate that scooped the jackpot.

Some people trying to access the site last night asked the National Lottery for more info on Twitter.

It was announced last night that the winning ticket was sold in Ireland, and it becomes one of the highest lottery wins here since the Euromillions began.
