A mystery Lotto winner, known only as Mr G from West Sussex, has become a millionaire without ever touching a ticket.
The lucky man scooped the life-changing prize of £1,000,000 in the Lotto Millionaire Raffle draw on February 25.
Mr G, who plans to use his £1,000,000 win to buy a new home, played Lotto through national-lottery.co.uk - and has become one of over six million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Huge congratulations to Mr G for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket and 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.”
