Mystery EuroMillions winner is from Bury st Edmunds


A mystery EuroMillions winner, known only as Mr A from Bury St Edmunds, has won a major prize without ever touching a ticket.

The lucky man scooped the life-changing prize of £259,301.50 by matching the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday July 7, 2015.

Mr A, a decorator, played EuroMillions through national-lottery.co.uk and has become one of more than six million players who win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.

He immediately splashed out on a slap-up breakfast as his first purchase and intends on paying off his mortgage.

A National Lottery spokesman said: “Huge congratulations to Mr A for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket. After a few simple clicks he has become a big winner and can now look forward to living life mortgage free.

“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 interactively have their numbers checked for them and are notified of a win via email.

Interactive winners have the opportunity to release their name, remain anonymous or, like this winner, release some details through partial publicity.
