A mystery Lotto winner has become the latest winner to become a millionaire after purchasing her first-ever ticket.

Only known as Mrs. B, from Essex, scooped the life-changing prize of £1,000,000 each by matching five main numbers and the bonus ball.

Mrs. B chose a personal selection of sentimental numbers, played Lotto through the National Lottery which were all drawn on Saturday, April 13.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Huge congratulations to Mrs. B for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket – after a few simple clicks she 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.”

From November 2018, Lotto introduced new bigger, fixed cash prizes resulting in two millionaires made on Wednesday, February.
