Mys­tery man hits the on­line jack­pot

Western Mail - - NEWS -

A MYS­TERY EuroMillions win­ner has be­come a mil­lion­aire with­out ever touch­ing a ticket.

Known only as Mr R from Caer­philly, the lucky man scooped the life-chang­ing prize in Novem­ber.

He plans to in­vest his win­nings for the fu­ture, but said his first pur­chase will be a hol­di­day.

Mr R played EuroMillions on­line and be­came one of more than eight mil­lion play­ers who win each week on the lot­tery’s var­i­ous games.

Na­tional Lot­tery se­nior win­ners’ ad­viser Andy Carter said: “Huge con­grat­u­la­tions to Mr R for win­ning this fan­tas­tic prize with­out even touch­ing a ticket – af­ter a few sim­ple clicks he has be­come a mil­lion­aire!

“With many peo­ple lead­ing busy lives, play­ing on­line is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar. It means you can make sure your lucky num­bers are al­ways in the draw and your ticket is al­ways checked.”

Peo­ple who play on­line through na­tional-lot­ have their num­bers checked au­to­mat­i­cally and re­ceive a no­ti­fi­ca­tion if they win.
