What happens to unclaimed prizes?
Depending on the country you purchase a ticket from, the way in which unallocated prizes are processed may be different.
In the UK
Unclaimed prizes in the UK are added to the National Lottery’s Good Causes Fund after the 180-day time period has elapsed. Millions of pounds worth of prizes go unclaimed every year, and sometimes players even miss out on huge jackpots. On Friday 8th June 2012, a UK player won £63.8 million but then never came forward to claim their money.
Before a prize is claimed, it is held in a trust outside of Camelot's bank accounts that is managed by Law Debenture. The interest generated by these unclaimed prizes goes towards paying bank charges and tax. It is also used to pay fees to external auditors and Law Debenture's trustee fees. Any money left after those costs is given to the Good Causes fund.
In Ireland, prizes which are not claimed within 90 days are returned to the National Lottery. This money is then used for the promotion of its games, with the aim of raising funds for good causes.
