The numbers for Tuesday's PowerBall lottery were five, six, seven, eight and nine while the PowerBall itself was announced to be 10.

Twenty lucky players hit the jackpot and won 5.7 million rand (£277,000) each.

The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday's lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $231 million with a cash option of $180 million.

Based on that, it only recommended that the operator educate the public on the odds of winning and how its random number generator system works.

The National Lottery is calling on its players who shopped on Tuesday in the Lidl store on the New Nangor Road in Clondalkin, Dublin 22 to check their EuroMillions tickets as someone's Christmas wishes have come true as they won the top prize of €500,000 on yesterday's EuroMillions Plus draw.

'These numbers may be unexpected but we see many players opt to play these sequences'.

"Lotto exposing themselves that they are a scam", posted one Twitter user.

The lottery commission say the number combination is obviously a popular one due to the high number of winners.

'20 people discussed this and shared that jackpot equally, ' ventured another.

"Absolutely no way in hell that's a coincidence", another said.

A spokesman for NLC, Ndivhuho Mafela, said the body would review the incident and report its findings.

'So we are in the process of doing that now'.

It is extremely rare for multiple winners to share the jackpot. The numbers are drawn live on TV. Just the same, in March 2003, 33 players won a share of the jackpot, according to a South African website that tallies results.
