Hunt on as three lottery prizes still unclaimed

Three National Lottery prizes remain unclaimed in Northern Ireland.

Lottery operator Camelot has already put out appeals for owners of tickets worth £4.3m and £1m, and now there is another unclaimed prize of just over £73,000.

Whoever owns the winning tickets, has just 180 days from the draw date to claim their prize, so Lottery bosses are urging everyone to check wallets, purses and pinboards to see if they have struck it rich.

The latest unclaimed prize is worth £73,263, after someone matched five numbers plus the bonus on the Lotto draw on August 11.

If no-one comes forward before the deadlines, the money, plus interest, will go to The National Lottery Good Causes.

A Lottery spokesman said: “It’s been a remarkable run of unclaimed tickets in Northern Ireland and we’re desperately keen to unite players with their winnings.”
