Deadline looms for a National Lottery winnerThursday March 18th 2010
Time and time again we hear news of lottery winners failing to claim their wins on time and a prize of £3.6 million is at risk of being left unclaimed as the deadline looms for a National Lottery winner to come forward. The deadline is now only a few days away and is for a lottery draw which took place back in September 2009. So if you have tickets lying around for this draw, now would be a good time to check them again as the winner will need to contact the National Lottery operators no later than 5.30pm on Monday 22nd March.
This National Lottery draw took place on 23rd September 2009 and the winning numbers were 23, 25, 28, 41, 46 and 47. It is believed that the winner could be from Scotland as the winning lottery ticket was purchased from Inverness. If you usually buy lottery tickets in this area, or may have done around the time of this lottery draw in question, then make sure you check all possible hiding places for your lottery tickets.
If this National Lottery prize remains unclaimed after the deadline passes then as with all unclaimed prizes, it will be donated to National Lottery good causes. Naturally this is a good thing but a would be multi millionaire will be left very disappointed if they discover later on that that they are the holder of the winning lottery ticket.
There is also an outstanding National Lottery prize of more than $224,000 that remains unclaimed. The ticket was purchased from the Kirklees area for the draw on 19th September and must be claimed today 18th March no later than 5.30pm.
