A mystery Euromillions winner from Essex - known only as Mr S - has scooped a £1 million prize.
The lucky man won the life-changing sum on the Millionaire Maker draw on Tuesday, January 30, after entering the prize draw online.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery, said: “Huge congratulations to Mr S for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket - after a few simple clicks he has become a millionaire and will be able to start looking for the house of his dreams.
“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.”
