A MYSTERY EuroMillions winner, known only as Mr. L from County Down, has won £137,339.50. The lucky man matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 16 February and plans to pay off his mortgage and treat his family.
Lucky Mr. L played a personal selection of birthday numbers via the National Lottery app which led to his life-changing win.

Thanks to National Lottery players, up to £800M is being used by charities and organisations affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak across the communities, the arts, heritage and sport.
