Do you know what's worse than playing the lottery and never hitting the jackpot? Finally winning that life-changing jackpot but running out of time to claim it, as one unlucky Sottish lotto player was unfortunate enough to find out.
A lottery player from Lanarkshire county in Scotland found out the hard way that one should always double-check your lottery tickets or risk losing out on a life-changing jackpot. The ticket was a £1 million winner from a May 30th Millionaire Raffle draw.
Players have 180 days after the draw date to claim any prizes after which the money will go toward funding local charities and other community programs. This is the seventh time since 2006 that lottery players from the Lanarkshire region have failed to claim their winnings.
More than £10 million in jackpots were left unclaimed by four separate winners after lotto bosses made numerous attempts to find the ticket holders.
