£1.4b Worth Of Forgotten Fortunes In Unclaimed Lottery Prizes

The thought of millions of pounds just sitting there waiting to be claimed is enough to give anyone FOMO. There has been a total of £1.4 billion in unclaimed lottery prizes according to the National Lottery, ever since the lottery began.

That is a whopping amount of unfulfilled hopes and dreams.

 

Here is a complete guide on everything you need to know about unclaimed tickets and how to avoid missing out on your fortune.

The Three Day Rule!

 

With how busy life can get it’s easy to miss a draw, getting into the habit of checking your lottery number winning three days after a draw is the best way to make sure you never miss out on your fortune, no matter how big or small it may be. Bookmarking our results page is a great way to keep us close and your winnings even closer.

How long do you have to claim a ticket?

 

National Lottery rules state that a winning lottery ticket is valid for 180 days from the day of the draw. This is nearly 6 months, which is definitely enough time to locate a missing ticket.

What Happens To Unclaimed Lottery Prizes?

 

If winners do not claim their prize after 180 days, all winnings are awarded to good causes. On the bright side, the oblivious winner has definitely fulfilled their lives worth of good deeds.

 

What was the largest unclaimed lottery ticket?

 

The biggest jackpot unclaimed was a staggering $1.59 billion in the MegaMilions. The winning ticket was purchased in California, matching all 6 numbers on Tuesday night.

Be safe, not sorry!
