Unclaimed Irish Lotto Prize
That is exactly the feeling that awaits one Irish Lotto Plus 2 player who recently missed out on a €250,000 jackpot. The unsuspecting ticket holder failed to claim their reward before the deadline on Friday 15th September, an occurrence that prompted National Lottery officials to confirm: “the Lotto Plus two prize of €250,000 from June 17 has now expired. Typically around 2% [of prizes] remain unclaimed in any given year.” So is there a way to avoid the misery of missing out on a lottery win?
Perils of Physical EuroMillions Tickets
While clutching a physical ticket as it secures a sizeable sum of cash might be a rewarding experience (literally), keeping your precious playslip safe can prove difficult.

However, if you pick your numbers online, you can cut out the fuss and bypass carelessness as your digits remain digitally housed.
