Winning Lottery Ticket goes Unclaimed

by Glenn Baird - December 4, 2019

A lottery ticket worth 14.6 million dollars as now reached its 6 month expiry date, meaning even if it does turn up under a cushion the prize is gone.

The winning ticket was purchased in a town called Goodyear, in the American state of Arizona and as of December the 2nd was no longer valid.

Arizona Lottery Director Gregg Edgar said the following on CNN: “There is nothing more exciting for Arizona Lottery than to award a large jackpot, like this $14.6 million prize, so we are always a little sad when we see one of these prizes expire unclaimed.”

The rules for lottery wins in the state of Arizona are that any prize worth more than 600 dollars needs to be claimed at the lottery’s main office, something that has not happened with this particular ticket.

Previous to this the biggest unclaimed jackpot in Arizona was 4 million dollars and the largest unclaimed lottery jackpot in the USA is reported to be a staggering 77 million dollars.

Throughout America the total number of unclaimed lottery prizes amounts to nearly 3 billion dollars, with individual states deciding what happens to their unclaimed cash.

In Arizona, roughly 30% of unclaimed wins are sent to a fund that pays for legal representation for young abused children who would otherwise be unable to afford it.

Edgar added: ‘These dollars will be utilized now to enhance our player’s experiences with future games and fund a variety of beneficiaries that have tremendous impact for our community.’

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland sits to the north-west of mainland Europe. The United Kingdom shares a border with The Republic of Ireland and has coasts on the Atlantic Ocean, Celtic Sea, North Sea, Irish Sea and English Channel.
