A MYSTERY man from Hampshire and his best friend have scooped a whopping £1,000,000 prize in the EuroMillions.

The Hampshire man, known only as Mr H, and his best friend, who are in a syndicate together,  won the money in the UK Millionaire Maker draw on Tuesday, December 5, 2023. 

Interactive winners have the opportunity to release their name, remain anonymous or, like Mr. H, release some details through partial publicity. It is not known whereabouts in Hampshire the pair come from. 

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Incredible news for Mr. H and his best friend for winning this fantastic prize. They have become a million pounds richer overnight - congratulations!”


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

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 more than 685,000 grants – supporting projects both big and small – having been made across the UK to date and more than £48BN having been raised for good causes.
