A MYSTERY Lotto winner from Somerset has scooped more than £6million - without ever touching a ticket.

Mr F, who does not want any publicity, was on of two winners each claiming a £6,317,431 jackpot in the November 6 draw.

He played online via national-lottery.co.uk and was one of more than eight million players 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 F for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket – after a few simple clicks he has become a multimillionaire.
