How to Claim Prizes
If you have won a prize you need to come forward within 180 days, otherwise the money will be donated to the Good Causes Fund. Smaller awards can just be collected from a retailer, but if you have won a larger amount you will need to contact the National Lottery directly. Visit the How to Claim page for more information.
The best way to make sure you do not miss out on a prize is to play online, as you will be notified straight away if you win. The money will either be transferred directly into your account or you will be told how to start the claims process for a larger prize.
Whether you play online or through a retailer, you can decide to stay anonymous if you win a big prize or go public with your story. It is one of the biggest decisions facing a jackpot winner, but National Lottery advisors are on hand to offer support whatever you want to do.
