Oxfordshire Lotto jackpot expires
There’s nothing worse than seeing lottery players miss out on big lottery prizes; the unclaimed prizes list from the National Lottery is full of life-changing lottery prizes waiting for their winners! So today, as an Oxfordshire Lotto jackpot expires we give you a little rundown on how to ensure you don’t end up on the unclaimed lottery prizes list. The Lotto prize that expired yesterday was worth £956,813 from a share on the Lotto jackpot back in December, however, despite many appeals no one came forward to claim.
This prize will now be handed over to the Fund for Good Causes, so all is not lost, but how can you ensure you don’t end up losing your lottery tickets? Follow our rundown below for some helpful hints on how to ensure you keep your tickets safe for this weekend’s rollover lottery draws.
- Buy your lottery tickets online – Our single best bit of advice to lottery players is to buy lottery tickets online. You can’t possibly lose the tickets and what’s more, the National Lottery will even email you if you are a winner.
- Download our iPhone Lottery Apps – Get lottery results, direct to your iPhone straight after the draw, allowing you to check your numbers wherever you are.
- Treat tickets like cash – Once you have purchased lottery tickets treat them like cash, and sign the back to ensure no one else can cash your prize.
- Extra draws? – Did you play in any extra draws? Lotto Plus 5 prizes have gone unclaimed in the last few months and the Millionaire Raffle is no stranger to the list either.
Good luck if you’re playing the big draws this weekend. Tonight’s Euromillions jackpot is worth a staggering £80 million and tomorrow there’s a Lotto rollover up for grabs offering another £6.9 million to lottery players!
