Two mystery Lotto winners from Essex have both become millionaires within one week of each other, without ever touching a ticket.

The lucky men scooped the life-changing prize of £1,000,000 in separate Lotto Millionaire Raffle draws

The men have only been identified as Mr. G and Mr. H.

Mr. H is now planning an early retirement thanks to his win, while Mr. G confessed he plans to "just enjoy it!".

They both played Lotto through and have joined over eight million winners that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Huge congratulations to Mr. G and Mr. H for winning these fantastic prizes without even touching a ticket. After a few simple clicks they have each become a millionaire.

“With many people leading busy lives, playing online is becoming increasingly popular.

"It means you can make sure your lucky numbers are always in the draw and your ticket is always checked.”

When you play interactively, your numbers are checked for you and you are notified when you have won via email.

Interactive winners have the opportunity to release their name, remain anonymous or like these winners, release some details through partial publicity.

The National Lottery changes the lives of winners as well as communities across the UK – players raise, on average, around £30m for National Lottery-funded projects every week.
