Unclaimed National Lottery tickets don’t end up in a landfill – but Wouldn’t it be nicer if the money you won was deposited into your bank account?
It is hard for us to say yes!
In the UK, in 2018, there were no less than $125 million in unclaimed prizes from scratch cards and lotteries.
In the UK, £2.5 billion of lottery winnings go unclaimed.
Where does the money from unclaimed tickets go? How long does it take to claim? What is the amount of money Brits have missed out on over the years?
Prepare yourself, it is a HUGE amount of money!
