More than £3m in National Lottery prizes could be lost as Britons urge to check their tickets to win the jackpot

More than £3m in National Lottery prizes could be lost as Britons are urged to check their tickets before it’s too late.

Six potential EuroMillions ticket holders have yet to show up as the deadline for claiming their prizes approaches.

Those lucky jackpot winners were completely unaware of their lucrative winnings – a total of £3,213,810, plus the Set For Life prize, still unclaimed.

But these secret millionaires with winning tickets could lose their fortune as early as next month if they don’t claim it in time.

Tickets have been purchased across the UK, with Barnsley winners likely to receive their thousands of pounds over the next few months.

Meanwhile, three lucky winners are yet to claim their UK Millionaire Maker awards in Portsmouth, Liverpool and South Gloucestershire.

And for ticket holders, it’s time to start planning their New Year’s spending – but only if they move on before the deadline passes.

Ticket holders have a limited time to claim their tickets.

After that, the money will be transferred for good reasons.

After a rough year for many, just double-checking your old tickets could bring some good news into the early days of 2022.

But it’s not just the big winners who should check sofas, coat pockets and laundry bins for older tickets.

Millions of pounds in smaller prizes are also waiting to be collected.

Local stores and retailers remain open for players to check their tickets in store or you can check online using the National Lottery app.

Andy Carter, Senior Advisor to National Lottery Winners said: “By playing any of the National Lottery games, players help raise an average of £30 million a week to the National Lottery. Good humanitarian across the UK.

“This money helps support the arts, community and philanthropy, heritage, education, environment and sports sectors.

“Everything from local charities that make a difference where you live to help our nation’s athletes win Olympic and Paralympic gold medals.

A total of £8.3 million was raised last year to support the National Lottery’s Good Causes.

To date, National Lottery players have helped raise more than £45 billion for Good Cause, with more than 660,000 individual prizes made across the UK.
