Unclaimed Irish Lottery Prizes

Unclaimed Irish Lottery prizes worth more than €10 million expire every year as unlucky players miss out on the opportunity to change their lives forever. Awards are valid for 90 days following the winning draw and any that remain unclaimed after that deadline are returned to the National Lottery to be used to promote its games, with the aim of increasing the funding for the good causes it supports. Here are the current unclaimed Irish Lottery prizes:

Anyone who plays through a retailer must present their ticket in order to receive their prize, so it is important to try and keep it in a safe place. It is also recommended that players sign the back of their tickets.

If you have played the lottery from any of the above locations, you may wish to check your jacket pockets or the bottom of your bag to look for old tickets. If you find a valid entry, make sure to come forward before the 90-day deadline.

To avoid missing out on an Irish Lottery prize, you could choose your numbers online instead, which means that you will always receive an email telling you if you are due a prize. In addition, your award is paid directly into your player account.
