It seems National Lottery players in Northern Ireland aren't exactly the best when it comes to checking their tickets, with the number of massive unclaimed prizes now at three.

Appeals have already gone out from operator Camelot for the owners of two tickets, one worth over £4m and the other worth £1m.

But now a third can be added to the list.

The latest unclaimed prize is worth £73,263 and it relates to the Lotto draw on 11 August. Five numbers plus the bonus ball were matched - the draw numbers were 1, 5, 14, 18, 34, 44, and bonus ball 23.

The ticket-holder has until Thursday 7 February next year to claim their prize.

Our message is simple - please search everywhere you can think of to find these tickets.

The £4,392,003 ticket bought in Co Down for the Saturday 2 June draw - winning numbers 16, 18, 20, 25, 29, 34 and bonus ball 15 - must be claimed by 29 November,

The £1m EuroMillions ticket bought in Fermanagh-South Tyrone for the Friday 3 August draw - winning raffle selection GCR760097 - must be claimed by 30 January next year.

If the prize winners don't come forward, the money plus any interest incurred goes to the National Lottery Good Causes fund.

"It's been a remarkable run of unclaimed tickets in Northern Ireland and we're desperately keen to unite players with their winnings," a National Lottery spokesperson said.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.

I hope they can develop a system to track the buyers so that even if the player lost his ticket he could still claim his prize. But for now to save the players from any problems they have to keep their tickets carefully.

It would seem as though the Ulster Bank has managed to avoid paying compensation to it's customers. Ulster Television has stopped asking pertinent questions regarding this matter.
