National down the back of the sofa week

This week is National Down the back of the sofa week, and if you’ve never heard of it, it’s because lottery organisers have just made it up. There are a staggering £9 million in unclaimed lottery prizes currently being held by the National Lottery, which is why they are appealing for players to look down the back of the sofa for lost lottery tickets, before all these prizes end up in the fund for good causes.
Today, a £1 million Millionaire Raffle prize will be added to the fund for good causes if the winner doesn’t come forward, and that’s just one day of lost lottery tickets. UK lottery winners are missing out on life-changing amounts of cash, simply because they are not checking the lottery results and are not hanging onto their tickets!
That’s why National Lottery organisers are taking a big sofa on tour around the UK, to encourage players to hunt for old lottery tickets. Forgotten coats and jackets are a favourite for lottery players, or maybe that handbag long forgotten in the bottom of your wardrobe.
Of course, there is a simple way around this, just do what we do and buy your lottery tickets online. It takes just a couple of minutes to open a lottery account with the National Lottery and once that’s done, you can buy all your lottery tickets, every week in just a couple of clicks, what’s more, if you’re a lucky winner, the National Lottery will send you an email. There’s no need to worry about checking the lottery results and there’s no hunt down the back of the sofa for lost lottery tickets!
