A mystery EuroMillions winner, known only as Mr H from Dorset, has become a millionaire without ever touching a ticket. The lucky man scooped the life-changing prize of £1,000,000 in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw on Friday, June 30.
Mr H, who is retired, played EuroMillions through national-lottery.co.uk and has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.
He has indicated that he will spend some of his winnings on treating the family and buying gifts for his children.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Huge congratulations to Mr H for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket – after a few simple clicks he has become a millionaire.
