Time is running out and the clock is ticking for one EuroMillions winner who scooped a £1 million Millionaire Raffle prize almost six months ago. This lucky player purchased a EuroMillions ticket in the Taunton Dean borough of the UK for the 20th November draw. The ticket did not win a prize in the main draw, but did match the Millionaire Raffle number, so it’s worth £1 million!
However, despite 173 days passing since the draw, this winner still hasn’t come forward and if they don’t do so by Sunday, the prize and any interest it has accrued will be added to the Fund for Good Causes.
A Powerball prize worth a massive $1 million has not been claimed despite a year passing since the draw. The ticket sold in New York, matched five numbers in the Powerball draw, but the prize will expire in a few days, as no one has come forward to claim. Today, the New York Lottery has put out a final appeal for the winner in the hope someone will remember.
The ticket is from the Powerball drawing on May 16th last year, the winning numbers for that draw were 3 – 7 – 21 – 28 – 43, the Powerball was 2. This lucky winner matched all five main numbers to scoop $1 million, but the prize will soon be lost forever. Read the rest of this entry »
With lottery tickets available online, negating the need to remember to check the results, you would hope this would mean fewer unclaimed prizes. However, this April alone, three lottery prizes across Britain have gone unclaimed and that includes a £1 million prize!
Two of these unclaimed prizes are EuroMillions prizes, the third a Lotto tickets and they are spread far and wide, one in England, one in Wales and one in Northern Ireland! Let’s see if we can jog some memories with details of these unclaimed prizes.
Unclaimed prizes are all too common on the UK lottery draws, but unclaimed jackpots are not so common at all, but that’s exactly what is sitting in Camelot HQ as a Lotto jackpot worth over £3 million still hasn’t been claimed despite a month passing since the draw.
The Lotto ticket in question was sold in the Sevenoaks area of Kent, for the 9th February Lotto draw. When the Lotto results were drawn, the ticket has matched all six numbers to scoop the £3 million jackpot, yet no one has come forward to claim.
Do you live in the Sevenoaks area of the UK? If so you may be sitting on a Lotto ticket worth over £3 million. On 9th February, two tickets matched all the numbers in the Lotto draw, but while one winner has come forward to claim, the second prize winner still hasn’t presented the ticket to Camelot.
The half share in the rollover jackpot is worth £3,094,304 and we know the ticket was sold in the area of Sevenoaks in the UK. Yet despite almost three weeks passing since the draw, no one has come forward to claim leading us to put out this appeal for the unclaimed lottery prize.
With online ticket sales now taking over store sales, it’s surprising that unclaimed lottery prizes are still such a problem. Unclaimed prizes only occur when you buy your tickets in store, never online and that’s we why recommend this form of purchase. Today the news has reached us that a life-changing EuroMillions prize from three weeks ago, still has not been claimed.
This unclaimed prize is from a ticket sold for the 1st February EuroMillions draw, in the Borough of Hinckley & Bosworth and matched five main balls and one Lucky Star in the draw.
EuroMillions players got a real treat at Christmas and New Year as Camelot held a Super Raffle, creating 50 millionaires over the period. At the time we reminded players strenuously to check both the main EuroMillions results and the Millionaire Raffle, but it seems not everyone did and now there are four festive Super Raffle prizes unclaimed!
Each of the Super Raffle prizes are worth £1 million, so these really aren’t prizes to be sniffed at, yet is seems that lottery players are still forgetting to check the full results.
A EuroMillions winner from the Basildon area of the UK has now lost a £1 million Millionaire Raffle prize after failing to meet the claim deadline. Just a few days ago we brought you a reminder of this unclaimed prize, from the 10th July EuroMillions draw but no one has come forward to claim.
The lack of a claim means the prize, and any interest it has accrued during the claim period, will be handed to the National Lottery Good Causes Fund, but it also means it’s lost to the winner forever.
