A MYSTERY man from Cheshire has scooped an incredible £1m prize in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw.

The draw, which took place on Friday, April 26, saw ten lucky UK millionaires made in one night, including a man from Cheshire known only as ‘Mr P’.

The Cheshire local, who played via the National Lottery website, 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.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Wow incredible news for Mr. P who has become a millionaire overnight after winning this amazing prize. Huge congratulations!”

The National Lottery has awarded over £92 billion in prizes and created more than 7,000 millionaires or multi-millionaires since its launch in 1994.

By playing any National Lottery game, players generate £30M each week for National Lottery-funded projects.

This money helps fund projects across the nation, with over 685,000 grants – supporting projects both big and small – having been made across the UK to date.
