A lotto jackpot worth £3.6 million is all that many of us dream of, but one lucky player in the UK is holding a lottery ticket worth this amount and hasn’t claimed. There’s a UK Lotto jackpot worth £3.6 million unclaimed in the UK right now, and if no one claims by this Thursday, the prize will be handed over to the fund for Good Causes.
Before you turn your house upside down looking for the ticket, let us give you some details of the unclaimed lottery ticket, and the winner.
Last week, out of desperation, the California Lottery officials released a surveillance video of a man buying a Mega Millions ticket that would turn out to be worth $52 million. Mega Millions officials had been appealing for the winner to come forward for several weeks, and now after recognising his own picture, the $52 million Mega Millions prize has finally been claimed.
The footage of Bladimir Agnite buying the ticket was released this week, and it didn’t take long before he spotted the footage and realised he was the $52 million Mega Millions winner.
The National Lottery and Euromillions draws play in mainland Britain and Northern Ireland, and Irish players are big fans of both draws. However, this week news has hit us that three lottery prizes from Northern Ireland are unclaimed, and one of them is a big UK Lotto jackpot!
Unclaimed prizes are all too common unfortunately and as National Lottery winners have just 180 days to claim, prizes that do not find winners are added to the Fund for Good Causes and given over to charity.
Across America news agencies are frantically looking for the latest Powerball winner but it may be a while before they come forward. However, the Powerball jackpot isn’t the only unclaimed lottery prize and this week Californians are reminded to check their old lottery ticket as appeals go out for two unclaimed prizes in the state.
California currently has $75 million in unclaimed lottery prizes, split between two big jackpots, on both the Mega Millions and California SuperLotto Plus game, and here’s a reminder about the winning tickets in the hope that someone’s memory can be jogged.
It was estimated at $320 million, but came in at $337 million, making it the biggest jackpot this year, but the Michigan Powerball winner is still to come forward and claim this bumper rollover prize.
The Powerball jackpot had been rolling since June 23rd and had reached epic proportions before being won by one player last Wednesday, but the winner, a single player from Michigan is yet to come forward.
The Euromillions is one of the most popular lottery draws in the world and with the big rollovers it produces it’s little wonder. The next Euromillions draw takes place on Tuesday evening and as the lottery is currently at triple rollover stage, there’s a staggering €40 million on offer!
Expect ticket sales to be high for Tuesday’s draw, and if the Euromillions jackpot continues to roll then expect sales to raise draw on draw.
We’ve all heard the news about the £63 million unclaimed EuroMillions winner, but this winner is just one of three big winners in the UK right now who are sitting on an unclaimed lottery prize. Currently there are two UK Lotto jackpots and this EuroMillions jackpot unclaimed, so we’re hoping we can jog the memories of lottery players and get these prizes to their rightful owners.
It’s so important to keep lottery tickets in a safe place, or play online. It’s no good buying a ticket for the draw and then not checking the lottery results, or you could miss out on a big prize.
It’s now been two weeks since two lucky players shared a Euromillions jackpot worth £127 million, these winners were from Belgium and the UK. However, despite the length of time since the draw, no one has come forward to claim the UK prize, leading Camelot to appeal for the £63 million winner to come forward.
Today Camelot have announced that the winning Euromillions ticket for the 8th June draw was sold in the Stevenage and Hitchen area of North Hertfordshire and so this is the area they are concentrating their search on.
It’s Tuesday today and that means the first Euromillions jackpot of the week goes up for grabs, yet despite almost a fortnight passing, there’s still an unclaimed prize worth over £63 million! It was almost two weeks ago when two players shared the £126 million jackpot, one of them British, yet this player still hasn’t come forward leading to a frenzy of interest.
It’s so long since the draw that another Euromillions rollover jackpot has been won, when last weekend two players from France and Spain shared a single rollover jackpot. Yet still the £63 million UK winner hasn’t come forward to claim the prize.
This week everyone is excited about the massive $173 million Powerball rollover jackpot, but players in New Jersey would do well to check all the old lottery tickets before buying new ones. That’s because, the last Powerball winner, from the state of New Jersey, still hasn’t come forward to claim their $70 million Powerball jackpot.
The last Powerball jackpot won was a $70 million rollover, won on March 21st. However, despite several appeals for the winner, the player has not come forward.
