A mystery winner, known only as Mr. R from Pembrokeshire has become an instant winner after scooping the top prize of £300,000 on the ‘Triple Cashword Yellow’ Instant Win Game from The National Lottery.
The Pembrokeshire local 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.
