A mystery EuroMillions winner - known only as "Miss L from Gwent", has become a millionaire after scooping the whopping £1,000,000 (₦567 million) Millionaire Maker prize in the EuroMillions draw last month.
The Gwent local – whose identity remains a mystery – played the Lucky Dip via the National Lottery website and is one of more than eight million players who win (varying amounts) on the range of National Lottery games each week.
Interactive winners can release their name, remain anonymous, or – like this winner – release some details through partial publicity.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Massive congratulations to Miss L for winning this fantastic prize.
“After a few simple clicks, she has become a millionaire overnight!”
Players can buy tickets in retail outlets, play online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app.
Playing digitally (online or via the app) means tickets are checked automatically, with players getting an e-mail notification if they win a prize. The app also allows people to scan their ticket to check if they’re a winner.
At national-lottery.co.uk, players can buy tickets for all of The National Lottery’s draw-based games including EuroMillions, Lotto, Set For Life and Thunderball. Once they have registered and set up an account, they can also play a range of online Instant Win Games.
For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.
National Lottery games help generate more than £30 million each week for Lottery-funded projects. To date more than £43 billion has been raised for National Lottery good causes.
Due to National Lottery players, more than £1 billion is being used by charities and organisations affected by the Covid pandemic, which includes more than £600 million in funding support from the National Lottery Community Fund.
