When it comes to playing lotteries, it is all about one trying their luck to see if it actually goes in their favor or not. There are millions of people around the world who keep buying lottery tickets, hoping that someday it would be their luck.
Given the odds of the lottery games, there are only a handful of people who are lucky to win lottery prizes. While the majority of the people end up winning nothing no matter how long they have been playing.
However, in the past year (2020), the number of lottery players has increased significantly and ticket sales have experienced all-time highs. As the number of players has increased, so has the number of winners in the past year.
While the majority of the players have been able to claim their prizes within time, there are still some prizes that are yet to be claimed. This is why the National Lottery has released the details for these prizes so the players can become aware and turn up to claim their prizes.
The main reason for the National Lottery posting these unclaimed prizes is because such prizes give birth to a lot of uncertainties and doubts. Almost every lottery operator gets to face a lot of opposition and resistance from people, who allege the lottery operators for planting fake winners.
By doing this, such people only do harm to the reputation of the lotteries and hamper their business/sales. This is the reason why lotteries put a lot of stress upon the winners to come up and claim their prizes. The lottery operators use this maneuver so the winners can show up and they get to reveal their stories and names to the entire lottery community.
Therefore, taking matters into their own hands, the National Lottery has revealed some prizes that are still waiting for their rightful owners to show up and claim them.
There is one prize for the ‘Lotto’, which is for £1,000,000 for July 22, 2020, draw. The prize-winning ticket was sold at Borough of Sandwell, Birmingham. The final date for claiming the prize is January 1, 2021.
The second prize is for the ‘Thunderball’ game, which is for £500,000 for July 29, 2020 draw. The prize-winning ticket was sold in the Ashfield District. The final date for claiming the prize is January 25, 2021.
The third prize is for the ‘EuroMillions’ game, which is for £87,534.10 for July 31, 2020. The prize-winning ticket was sold in West Tyrone. The final date for claiming the prize is January 27, 2021.
The last prize is for the ‘Lotto’ game, which is for £1,000,000 for the August 1, 2020 draw. The prize-winning ticket was sold in West Lancashire. The final date for claiming the prize is January 28, 2021.
