A mystery EuroMillions winner, known only as Mr L from South Yorkshire, has become a millionaire after scooping a whopping £1,000,000 prize in the special EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker event draw on July 2 which saw 20 UK millionaires made through the millionaire maker code.

The South Yorkshire local, who plans to treat his family with the winnings, has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games. Interactive winners have the opportunity to release their name, remain anonymous or like this winner, release some details through partial publicity.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “What fabulous news for Mr. L for winning this fantastic prize, and for the other 19 winners of this prize from the Millionaire Maker event draw. He has become a millionaire overnight and can now look forward to treating his nearest and dearest.

EuroMillions Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw. For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.

By playing any National Lottery game, players generate an average of £36M each week for National Lottery-funded projects. This money helps support everything from the local charity making a difference where you live through to helping our nation’s athletes win Olympic and Paralympic gold medals. To date, over £43BN has been raised and distributed to National Lottery Good Causes through more than 635,000 individual grants.

Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2BN is being used by charities and organisations affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, which includes over £600M in funding support from the National Lottery Community Fund which is being used to help groups best placed to support people and communities through the crisis.

In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Liam Hoden, editor.
