ONE lucky Hampshire resident has had their life changed by a complete stroke of luck and the click of a few buttons.

The man, known only as Mr R and living in Hampshire, recently became a millionaire after taking a chance on the Euromillions and winning big.

He won the life-changing prize of £1,000,000 in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw on Friday, 23 March and now plans to save for the future.

What makes Mr R’s win more unique is that he did not even touch a ticket or pick his numbers.

The Hampshire resident entered through and picked a lucky-dip so was taking a complete punt on the number he might draw.

He has now become one of more than eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.

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

“Playing interactively couldn’t be easier; not only are your numbers checked for you but you are also notified when you have won, receiving the good news via an email that is delivered directly into your inbox.

“Interactive winners have the opportunity to release their name, remain anonymous or like this winner, release some details through partial publicity.”

Like Mr R, players on the National Lottery website players can buy tickets for all of The National Lottery’s draw-based games including Lotto, EuroMillions and Thunderball.

Once they have registered and set up an account, they can also play a range of online instant win games.

Every week EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create four millionaires – two on Tuesday and two on Friday. For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a UK Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.
