Believe it or not, but a lottery ticket of 65 million euros still hasn’t been claimed. So far no one has come to ‘pick up’ the EuroMillions Jackpot. However, time is running out. If you have participated in the EuroMillions lottery, you better check your ticket!
Lottery ticket sold in Scotland
Next Sunday is the last day that the life-changing fate can be cashed, reports the British newspaper The Mirror. In March, the lottery ticket was sold in South Ayrshire, Scotland. The lucky numbers are 5, 7, 8, 16, 20 with Lucky Stars 2, 12.
Richer than Banksy
The ticket is worth 58 million pounds, converted 65 million euros. An amount that makes you richer than the successful street artist Banksy, who has an estimated fortune of 50 million.
Eleven other prizes unclaimed
Besides this amazing prize, eleven other great cash prizes have not been claimed. The tickets represent a total of 6.7 million euros. The highest unclaimed jackpot was sold near Hitchin in England in 2012. At the time, it was worth 64 million pounds, which is about 72 million euros.
What happens if the ticket isn’t claimed?
EuroMillions Players have 180 days to make claims on prizes. If nobody hands over the lucky ticket then the cash will be handed to charities.
In 2012, a Euromillions prize fund of 65 million pounds was distributed to charities after nobody claimed the winning ticket, which was bought in Hertfordshirs.
Winners of the largest Jackpot
The winners of Scotland’s largest Lottery Jackpot were Colin and Christine Weir from Ayrshire. The lucky couple won 161 million pounds on Euromillions in 2011.
1 in 140 million
Across all lottery games in 2018, about 125.1 million pounds went unclaimed. The chance to win the Jackpot in the twice weekly draw of EuroMillions has been estimated at one in 140 million.
