Armagh lottery winner plans to buy new home after incredible windfall


A mystery Armagh man – known only as Mr M – has won £10,000 a month for a year with the national lottery.

The lucky lad matched the five main numbers in the Set For Life draw on Monday, February 12 and he now plans to buy a new house with his winnings.

The auspicious Armachian, who played a Lucky Dip via the National Lottery website, has become one of over eight million players that win each week on The National Lottery’s range of games.

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

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Wow, what fantastic news for Mr. M who has won £10,000 every month for an entire year. He can now look forward to buying a new house with his winnings. Huge congratulations!”

Set For Life is an exciting draw-based game from The National Lottery. You pick five main numbers from 1 to 47, and one ‘Life Ball’ from 1 to 10, for the chance to win fixed prizes – with everything from the top prize of £10,000 a month for 30 years, to the 2nd prize of £10,000 a month for one year and £5 for matching just two main numbers. The Set For Life game costs £1.50 per line and is drawn every Monday and Thursday.

By playing any National Lottery game, players generate £30M each week for National Lottery-funded projects. This money helps fund projects across the nation, with over 685,000 grants – supporting projects both big and small – having been made across the UK to date.
