Known as Mr A, the lucky winner is a decorator from Bury St Edmunds who celebrated with an expensive breakfast and is now looking forward to paying off his mortgage. Quoted in the East Anglian Daily Times, a National Lottery spokesperson said: “Huge congratulations to Mr A for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket. After a few simple clicks he has become a big winner and can now look forward to living life mortgage free.”
