£1 million lottery prize set to expire on 16th  July

According to National Lottery, there’s £1 million lottery prize which is waiting for its winner to claim it. 13 UK Lottery players are living up their everyday life without even checking their lottery ticket for the big jackpot. Unfortunately, one of them is going to lose the £1 million prize forever.

The £1 million winner won the cash back on 17th January this year. And, it was the UK Millionaire Maker prize in the EuroMillions draw. The deadline to claim the prize is 180 days from the date of draw. After that, it is given away to some good cause. So, the last date to make the claim is July 16. The ticket was sold in the North Kesteven district. And, no one has still come forward to claim it.

Few more prizes-

However, there are other prizes too which are set to expire this month. A £61,000 prize won on 24th January is also yet to be claimed. The EuroMillions winner bought the ticket in London Borough of Southwark. He matched all five balls with one star i.e. 1-5-7-17-23 and lucky stars 3 and 8.

There is another EuroMillions millionaire who won UK Millionaire Maker on 21st January. This Barnsley, South Yorkshire winner has 30th July as the deadline to claim his winnings. The winning prize includes a luxury fortnight trip to Thailand, Bali or the Maldives with business class flight tickets and a five-star hotel stay.

Apart from this, two prizes are expiring in August and September, one in October, four in November and one in December.

How is this possible?

It is something hard to believe that someone overlooks a £1 million jackpot win. But it is easier than it seems. In some cases, people just look to the main draw and forget to check the raffle. On the other hand, many people leave the winning ticket in their bag or jacket’s pocket and forget it. And this is why it is advised to check the pockets, piles or paperwork or receipts.

Moreover, there are chances that some lucky winner will never claim their winnings. The saddest and most dramatic was back in 2002 where the EuroMillions winner failed to claim the £64 million win.
