A man from Kent is going to spend his lottery winnings on a dream holiday to America.
A mystery man, known only as Mr G from Kent, has won on his lucky ticket at the end of April, but the news has only just been revealed.
Mr G will now get £10,000 a month for a year after he won a life-changing prize by matching the five main numbers in the Set For Life draw.
Mr G played Set For Life through national-lottery.co.uk and has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: "Huge congratulations to Mr G for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket.
"After a few simple clicks he can now look forward to receiving £10,000 every month for a year - one thing is for sure, it’ll be a year that he’ll never forget.
“With many people leading busy lives, playing online is becoming increasingly popular.
"It means you can make sure your lucky numbers are always in the draw and your ticket is always checked.
“Playing interactively couldn’t be easier; not only are your numbers checked for you but you are also notified when you have won, receiving the good news via an email that is delivered directly into your inbox.
“Interactive winners have the opportunity to release their name, remain anonymous or like this winner, release some details through partial publicity.”
Set For Life is a new draw-based game from The National Lottery.
People pick five main numbers from 1 to 47, and one 'Life Ball' from 1 to 10, for the chance to win fixed prizes -with everything from the top prize of £10,000 a month for 30 years, to the 2nd prize of £10,000 a month for one year, to £5 for matching just two main numbers.
The Set For Life game costs £1.50 per line and is drawn every Monday and Thursday.
