Are You an Unsuspecting Winner?
Updated: Monday 20th July 2015
At the time of writing there are several lottery prizes that are waiting to be claimed by their rightful owners, so it makes sense to ask yourself if you could be one of the unsuspecting winners. One of the unclaimed prizes is worth £1,524,177 after a ticket purchased in South Tyneside matched all of the numbers required to win the Lotto jackpot on Saturday 27 March. The lottery results for that game were 06, 11, 15, 32, 38 and 42, and the Bonus Ball was the number 24. The winner of this £1.52 million prize must claim it by Thursday 23 September or the money will be given to Good Causes.
A EuroMillions ticket purchased in the Liverpool area for the draw on Friday 26 March matched the five main numbers (8, 16, 18, 37 and 43) but none of the Lucky Stars (02 and 06) to win a third-tier prize worth £59,117. The owner of this ticket has to claim their prize by Wednesday 22 September or it too will be made void and the money assigned to the fund for Good Causes.
A Lotto ticket bought in the Norwich area won a prize worth £136,831 in the midweek draw on Wednesday 24 March by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. The lottery for that draw were 03, 05, 23, 28, 42 and 49, and the Bonus Ball was the number 41. The deadline for claiming this prize in Monday 20 September.
In the Doncaster area a lottery player purchased a ticket for the same Lotto draw on Wednesday 24 March and matched all six main numbers to win a share of the jackpot worth £555,879. The deadline for claiming this prize is naturally the same as for the unclaimed prize discussed a moment ago – Monday 20 September.
These are just some of the National Lottery prizes that have not yet been claimed by their winners, but there are plenty more unclaimed prizes of varying amounts that are slowly approaching their expiry dates, so if you haven’t checked your old tickets lately it would be a very good idea to do so now.
Don’t forget, there is a Lotto triple rollover jackpot of £17 million to play for on Wednesday 14 April, and a EuroMillions rollover jackpot of £25 million up for grabs on Friday 16 April. Why not buy lottery tickets online today so that you can be notified of any prize that you win by email shortly after the draw has taken place?
