One lucky player from County Durham struck it big before Christmas in the EuroMillions lottery, as he won a staggering £239,849.70.
The National Lottery confirmed the win and the player was identified as just Mr. C. The winner said that he was going to use his winnings to buy a new home.
The County Durham winner participated in the EuroMillions lottery draw that was held on December 16th, Friday, and was able to match all five main numbers as well as one Lucky Star number for the win.
He had opted for a Lucky Dip through the National Lottery app and was one of the eight million players who are able to land prizes in the different games every week.
Interactive winners are usually given the option of deciding if they want to keep their name anonymous, as Mr. C, chose to do, or release their names and details fully, or even partially.
