Now that the year 2020 is over, it is clear that no one wants to hear or talk about it. The year will be remembered for all the chaos, havoc, and crisis it caused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The year has left the global economy down to its last straw and now, the focus of the entire world is looking ahead.
Similarly, the National Lottery does not want anything to do with the lottery prizes that are yet to be claimed from the last year. This is the reason why the National Lottery has posted the list of prizes that are yet to be claimed from the last year.
Many times, the officials of the National Lottery have expressed their concern about winners not showing up to claim their prizes. Therefore, it has now started posting the unclaimed prizes in order to encourage the winners to turn up and claim their prizes.
This time around, the National Lottery has posted numerous prizes that are yet to be claimed by the winners. The National Lottery has also requested the residents/retailers of the respective areas to check with their fellow lottery players and regular customers to check their tickets regularly.
The first prize in the list is for the ‘Lotto’, and the draw for the game was held on August 8, 2020. The lucky ticket that won the £1,000,000 prize was sold in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. The last date to claim the prize is February 4, 2021.
The second prize is also for the ‘Lotto’ game, which has the same draw date, location, and prize money similar to the first prize.
The third prize is for the ‘EuroMillions’ game, and the draw for the game was held on September 18, 2020. The lucky ticket that won the prize money of £1,000,000 was sold in the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall. The final date to claim the prize March 3, 2021.
The fourth prize is again for the ‘EuroMillions’ game, and the draw for the game was held on October 2, 2020. The lucky ticket that managed to win £1,000,000 was sold in Belfast. The last date for the winner to show up and claim the prize is March 31, 2021.
The fifth and the last prize is again for the ‘EuroMillions’ game. The draw for the particular ticket was powered and held by the National Lottery on November 6, 2020. The prize that the ticket managed to achieve for the player was £1,000,000. The area in which the prize-winning ticket was sold is Coventry. The winner of the £1000,000 prize has until May 5, 2021, to show up and claim the prize before it expires and gets sent over to the charities.
