A MYSTERY EuroMillions winner, known only as Mr A from Devon, has become a millionaire after scooping a whopping £1,000,000 prize in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker.

The Devon local, who played a personal selection of random numbers via the National Lottery website on Tuesday, June 27, has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.
