Brighton Lottery jackpot finally claimed
Lately, we’ve been bringing you lots of news about unclaimed lottery prizes, as there are so many sitting with the National Lottery waiting for their owners. However, today we have good news about unclaimed prizes, and that’s that the Brighton Lottery jackpot we told you about a few weeks ago is finally claimed. The jackpot is worth £2.9 million and we’re so happy to report that it is now on its way to the rightful owner.
Unclaimed prizes often end up going to charity, but to see a life-changing lottery jackpot lost in this way is disappointing and frustrating. It may have taken three months but this lottery winner has finally come forward, after matching all six numbers to win the jackpot back in November. It’s understood that this lottery winner will remain anonymous, and so it’s not known just why they took so long to step forward and claim.
Unclaimed lottery prizes while fairly uncommon, still rack up to a few million every year, so make sure when you buy lottery tickets that you check the lottery results carefully. Alternatively, buy lottery tickets online and you’ll never have to worry about checking another lottery result. When you buy lottery tickets online, you won’t have to worry about keeping your lottery tickets safe, and if you’re a lucky winner, the National Lottery will even send you an email to let you know!
Take a quick look at the unclaimed prizes next time you buy lottery tickets online, it might be you who’s missing out on a life-changing lottery prize!
Speaking of life-changing, don’t forget that tomorrow’s Lotto jackpot is worth a massive £7.5 million!
