£2.6m Lottery win goes unclaimed

UK National LotteryUK National Lottery: £2.6m Lottery win goes unclaimed

A £2.6 million National Lottery jackpot has gone unclaimed and is to be handed over to good causes.

It's the third largest prize in the lottery's history to go unclaimed.

Organisers Camelot had urged players to have a final search for the winning Lotto Extra ticket.

It was bought in south-east Northumberland for the draw on Saturday May 10 and carried the numbers 2, 7, 17, 25, 38 and 44.

In February this year a £2,928,214 Lotto jackpot ticket, also bought in the Northumberland area, remained unclaimed - making it the second largest unclaimed prize.

Camelot allows 180 days for jackpots to be claimed before the cash, plus interest, is handed over to good causes.

Spokeswoman Jacquie Wilson said: "We tried everything we could to find the owner of this lucky ticket.

"Unfortunately no one came forward by the expiry deadline and I am sorry to say whoever they were, they have now missed the deadline to claim the prize.

"The good news is that the nation will benefit as the £2.6 million and the £35,000 interest raised on the money during the 180 day deadline goes to the Good Causes."
