The unclaimed lottery prizes around the world!

Almost everyone in the world has at least once in a lifetime dream of winning a huge amount in the lottery.  Why not, it is one of the most convenient and exciting ways to make money.  But in contrast to the big green dream is the amazing yet true fact that there are stacks of lottery winnings that just remain unclaimed.    
Well, this is the most heart-wrenching thing but there are scores of people around the world who purchase lottery tickets, but they are unaware of the big fortune that they won! It happens because most people either don’t care to check if they have won or believed that it is just a scam.

People remain in the gloom with their lack of trust in the gaming sites and even after buying a lottery ticket, they just don’t care to check if they have won the draw.

If the leftover amounts around the world are summed up, there is an incredible amount of money won in the lottery that remains unclaimed by the winners.

Here are some reasons why lottery prizes remain unclaimed:
  • Some players find games too complicated to understand and they never actually realize that they have won the game.
  • There are some players who depend on the clerk in-store and never care to check if their lottery ticket has won.
  • There are quite a lot of instances when the players simply forget to see if they have won on their lottery tickets.
  • Some players actually lose or misplace their lottery tickets.

With so many people not caring for their winnings, everyone starts wondering about what happens to all the unclaimed sums of lottery prize and here is the answer:

Every lottery comes with a time frame through which the players or winners can claim their wins and once this timeframe expires and the prizes remain unclaimed, the amount is reverted back to the lottery organization or governments which in turn send the sums to schools, hospitals or some other funds.  The rules are different for different countries around the world with the authorities deciding on what to do with the unclaimed lottery prizes.

Usually, the term winner is automatically attached to the word luck but in case of unclaimed lottery prizes, the winner becomes the unlucky loser!

The mere thought that some millions have been lost and that too because of carelessness and ignorance is quite unpleasant and unbearable in some cases.
