Lotto Plus 5 Jackpots Expire
Last Updated: Friday 9th September 2011, 09:26 am
Two Lotto Plus 5 jackpots worth £250,000 each have expired unclaimed after 180 days elapsed without anyone coming forward to claim them. Both of these expired jackpots were won in the Lotto Plus 5 draw on Friday 11 March. One of the winning tickets had been purchased in the Slough area and the other in Doncaster. It is obviously too late for the owners of those tickets to make a claim now that the deadline has passed (the deadline was 5:30pm on Wednesday 7 September), but for those who are interested the winning numbers concerned were 04, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 49.
These two jackpot-winning tickets became void just a couple of days after a Lotto prize of £205,496 expired at 5:30pm on Monday 5 September. The Lotto prize had been won on Wednesday 9 March by matching five of the six main numbers (which were 09, 11, 37, 40, 41, and 49) and the Bonus Ball (which was 33). This winning ticket had been purchased in the Manchester area.
Once again we would like to urge all lottery players to guard against missing out on big prizes by purchasing tickets online. If you do that then not only will you eliminate the risk of losing a winning ticket but you will also receive email notification of any substantial prize that your entry wins, allowing you to claim your prize and transfer it into your bank account without delay.
This is particularly important right now because there are some massive jackpots that could be won over the next couple of days. The jackpot in the Lotto game this Saturday 10 September will be worth around £4.1 million and the Irish Lotto jackpot on the same day will be worth something in the region of €8 million. And of course, tonight there is a colossal EuroMillions jackpot of around £126 million to be won.
Be protective of your jackpot-winning chances by purchasing your lottery tickets online and good luck!
