16 Dec EuroMillions win for Essex local
A mystery EuroMillions winner, known only as Mrs. L from Essex, has won £101,781.50 on The National Lottery. The lucky woman matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw on Friday 26 November and plans to pay off her mortgage with the winnings.
The lucky Essex resident, who played a Lucky Dip via the National Lottery app, 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 brilliant news for Mrs. L who can look forward to paying off her mortgage with her windfall. We hope lots of amazing memories can be enjoyed in her home.
