Euromillions changed hundreds of lives with its UK Millionaire Maker draw, and one anonymous punter from Cotswolds recently joined this amazing group of winners. About a month after matching the correct code, this lucky ticket holder finally claimed their impressive £1.000.000 cash reward.
The mysterious punter matched one of the winning UK Millionaire Maker codes in Euromillions draw on February 13th.
