He even won the prize using a free Lucky Dip ticket he had won in a previous draw.

Winners have the opportunity to release their details or remain a mystery – as Mr L has done.

Camelot is the company which runs the draw.

Andy Carter from the firm said: "Huge congratulations to Mr L! He has become a millionaire overnight from winning a Lucky Dip after matching two numbers on a previous Lotto draw!

"We’re encouraging everyone to check their tickets online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app, and to buy or check their tickets in retail in line with government guidance."

"Playing online via the website or app means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize.

"You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you’re a winner.”

The National Lottery generates on average £36m each week for good causes.

To date, more than £43 billion has been raised and distributed through more than 635,000 individual grants.
