Today at 5:30pm the £3.6 million Lotto jackpot winner, who matched all six lottery numbers in the Sept 23rd draw last year, will lose their chance to claim their multi-million pound prize. The jackpot lottery ticket expires today, 180 days after the draw took place. Anybody, especially players from Scotland, who bought lottery tickets last year should have a good hunt around the house and the car, just in case this is your unclaimed lottery prize.

Last September one lucky National Lottery player should have been jumping for joy but for some reason they have, so far, failed to come forward to claim their jackpot prize. As is often the case, the ticket holder may have lost their ticket or they may have put it in a “safe” place and forgotten about it. As the ticket was sold in September the ticket could well be tucked away in a summer jacket or cardigan that has been packed away for the winter.

The winning lottery ticket was sold in the Constituency of Inverness, Nairn Badenoch and Strathspey in Scotland for draw number 1,435 which was held on the 23rd of September 2009 and had a jackpot of £3,681,197. The lottery numbers drawn were; 23, 25, 28, 41, 46 and 47 with the Bonus Ball being drawn as 27.

If there’s even the slightest chance that you could have bought this lottery ticket do yourself a favour and have a good hunt for it as finding it tomorrow will be no good. Well, that’s not entirely true. If this multi-million pound lottery jackpot isn’t claimed by 5:30 this evening the money will be donated to the good causes funds, which will assist local and national projects in and around the UK.
