A mystery EuroMillions winner, known only as Mr. E from Lincolnshire, has won £121,960.70 without ever touching a ticket.
The lucky man won after matching the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday, August 21, 2018.
Mr. E, who used a personal selection when choosing his numbers, 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.
Lucky Mr. E has indicated that he’ll be using some of his winnings to go travelling.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “Huge congratulations to Mr. E for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket. After a few simple clicks he has become over one hundred and twenty thousand pounds better off!
