A mystery woman from Wiltshire became a millionaire overnight, after she won a huge prize in the EuroMillions lottery draw.
The local from Wiltshire was recognized as Mrs. F and she won the UK Millionaire Maker that allowed her to walk away with a whopping prize of £1 million in the draw conducted on August 9th.
Before her, there was another lucky lady from Wiltshire, who is known as Ms. M, who was able to land a prize of £300,000 a couple of months ago in an instant win game.
Winners have the freedom to decide if they want to disclose their identity to the public, or wish to remain anonymous.
Mrs. F had chosen to go for partial publicity and reveal only a few details about her identity. She is one of more than eight million players who participate in the range of games organized by the National Lottery.
The National Lottery’s Senior Winners Advisor, Camelot’s Andy Carter congratulated Mrs. F for her huge win in the EuroMillions draw that helped her become a millionaire.
