Local Essex woman wins £10k a month for a year on ‘Set For Life’

A mystery woman, known only as Miss A from Essex, has won £10,000 a month for a year without ever touching a ticket. The lucky woman won her life-changing prize by matching the five main numbers in the ‘Set For Life’ draw on Thursday 20 June – and is celebrating her win with a holiday!

Miss A played a personal selection of sentimental numbers on Set For Life through and has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games. As well as jetting off on holiday, Miss A is also planning on using her win to a spot of decorating.

Andy Carter Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “Huge congratulations to Miss A for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket. After a few simple clicks she can now look forward to receiving £10,000 every month for a year – one thing is for sure, it’ll be a year that she’ll never forget.
