A mystery man, known only as Mr. M from Greater Manchester, has won £79,104.90 on The National Lottery in the EuroMillions draw.

The winning draw on Tuesday, April 30 saw the lucky player, who was one of three UK winners who matched the five man numbers and one Lucky Star number in the draw, and he plans to treat his family with his winnings.

The Greater Manchester resident, who played via the National Lottery app, 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, “Fantastic news for Mr. M after banking this incredible sum on EuroMillions - that’s a lot of treats for the family! Huge congratulations.”
