The mystery EuroMillions winner, known only as Mr. W, scooped the life-changing prize of £1,000,000 in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw on Tuesday, October 30.

The man, who works as an engineer, said he plans to help his family with his new found fortune, but said his first purchase will be new carpet, and joked that now it could be from John Lewis.

Mr. W played EuroMillions through and has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.
