A woman from Cumbria, known only as Miss S, has won an impressive £246,725.90 on the EuroMillions draw of The National Lottery.

Winners like Miss S have the option to release their name, remain anonymous, or like this lucky lady, release only some details through partial publicity.

She is now planning to use her winnings to buy a new property and treat her family.

Miss S' win came from a Lucky Dip ticket bought on The National Lottery app.

She now joins the ranks of more than eight million players who win each week across The National Lottery’s assortment of games.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: "Fantastic news for Miss S after banking over £200K on EuroMillions.

"She can now use her winnings to treat her family and buy a new home!

"Congratulations all round."

People eager to follow in Miss S' footsteps can purchase and verify check tickets online either using The National Lottery app or the official website, national-lottery.co.uk.

Online play also includes a notification feature through which players receive an email if they win a prize.

A selection of online Instant Win Games can also be played once registered on the website.

Tickets can also be bought and checked in retail.

Whether you prefer the spontaneity of a Lucky Dip, or the personal connection to your special numbers, playing on national-lottery.co.uk is 'simple and easy'.

Setting up a National Lottery direct debit also means having no tickets to worry about or numbers to check.

By playing any National Lottery game, players generate £30m each week for National Lottery-funded projects.

This cash helps fund a variety of projects across the UK, with more than 690,000 grants given out to both small and large projects thus far.
