Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Chester J. Lampwick

Dear Gambling Commission,

Please could you provide a comprehensive list of all unclaimed (over £50,000) Lotto, EuroMillions, Thunderball, Millionaire Maker, and Millionaire raffle prizes between 30th April 2018 and April 30th 2019?
Specifically, I would like to know the game type, prize amount and the date of the draw associated with each particular unclaimed prize.
I understand that unclaimed prizes are registered as such after 180 days, so the details of any unclaimed prizes you provide should date from the 1st November, 2017 to 1st November 2018.

Thank you very much for your time.

Yours faithfully,

Chester J. Lampwick

Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your request which has been processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

As requested, please see attached list of all unclaimed (over £50,000) Lotto, EuroMillions, Thunderball, Millionaire Maker, and Millionaire raffle prizes between 30th April 2018 and April 30th 2019.

When viewing this spreadsheet please note, we have added data highlighting the total value of unclaimed prizes for several financial years as we felt that would provide helpful context.

In addition, while we have validated the data to the extent possible, due to the nature of the data (which emerges from analysis of daily reports) the figures cannot be fully verified for their accuracy.

If you are not content with the outcome of our review, you may then apply directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a decision. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have already exhausted the review procedure provided by the Gambling Commission.

The ICO can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
