The search is on for two mystery Lotto players who each won a share of the £5 million Jackpot-Only draw on 29 April. The winning numbers were 4, 10, 23, 36, 37 and 49, and the players have yet to come forward. Entry to the Jackpot-Only draw was automatic for anyone buying a ticket for the main Lotto Draw on 29 April, and this could explain why the Jackpot-Only winners appear to be oblivious to their £1.6 million wins.

Lotto officials have said that one winning ticket was purchased in the Glasgow area and the other in Warwickshire, and are calling on all players who bought a ticket those regions for the 29 April draw to check their numbers against the Jackpot-Only result. The deadline for claims on this draw is 5:30pm on 26 October, 2006.

Surprisingly, these aren't the only unclaimed prizes that are currently waiting to be claimed. Others include:

Players have 180 days from the date of a lottery draw to make a valid claim. If a prize is not claimed then it is added to the fund for Good Causes, which has already raised more than £18.5 billion from ticket sales over the last 11 years.

The best way to avoid missing out on prizes is to establish a checking routine that you follow week after week. We suggest the following:

Always double-check results from two sources (just in case teletext or a newspaper publisher the wrong results) and only throw away your tickets when you are absolutely sure that they haven't won anything.
