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.
After eleven consecutive rollovers, we have one of the biggest lottery jackpots of the year up for grabs tonight on the Euromillions Lottery. At €150 million, tonight’s Euromillions jackpot is currently the biggest lottery jackpot anywhere in the world, and the level of frenzy in today’s lottery ticket sales goes to show how popular the jackpot is going to be.
On Friday evening, the Euromillions and Millionaire Raffle was making all the news and over €150 million was paid out in prizes from those draws, but the jackpot still rolls, creating a double-whammy for lottery players.
There are some big lottery jackpots up for grabs this week, right around the world, but none so big as the Tuesday Euromillions jackpot, up to €60/£48 million for the Euromillions draw. It’s one of several big jackpots we’ve seen on the lottery this year, and is sure to bring some midweek excitement for players.
There were some big winners in Friday’s Euromillions, including four players who collected €457,000 or £332,000 for matching the 5+1 prize, and four players who collected over €150,000 for matching just five main balls.
Wednesday night is Lotto night in the UK and there are two big draws taking place this evening. The UK Lotto midweek jackpot is an estimated £2.2 million and in the Thunderball draw there’s the usual £500,000 jackpot up for grabs. Whichever of the UK lottery jackpots you’re chasing this evening, tonight’s winning numbers are now in.
Thunderball: 08 – 15 – 20 – 25 – 32 Thunderball 10
UK Lotto: 03 – 09 – 14 – 19 – 34 – 38 Bonus 36
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.
