National Lottery App may have cheated us all

Target: National Lottery ticket purchasers and app users
Some months ago the National Lottery had an App that could check your ticket and tell you if you had won. It worked, or so it seemed, and told me I'd won £2.60, £5.20, free lucky dip etc etc.



Crucially it also told me when I had lost so, of course, the ticket went in the bin. However it turns out the app was faulty for a period of time and may have missed winning tickets.



There was no indication that the app was any less reliable than going in a shop to check the ticket. So anyone using the app may have lost £'s, £000's, £000,000,000's ! Who knows?



National Lottery said i needed to provide info that I'd bought a ticket, where I bought it, what the numbers were....Ridiculous!! Why would I need to note that sort of info when their 'official' app was meant to make checking tickets fool proof.



Have I been cheated, have we all!! I've put the burden of proof back on National Lottery and asked them to prove that I didn't have a winning ticket.

Their attitude is that keeping their heads down will hopefully mean this blows over. Very shabby
